Crowley Maritime Corporation and Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA) will create a training and workforce development program dedicated specifically to the New England region’s offshore wind energy industry. The partnership will enable the strategic and continued growth of a qualified workforce in the US offshore wind industry, including sea safety and survival instruction.
The program will be certified by the Global Wind Organisation (GWO). The academy will coordinate with Relyon Nutec, a provider of specialised instruction for energy and industrial sectors, to deliver the courses. In addition, Crowley will continue to provide scholarships, internships and hands-on learning for MMA cadets. Going beyond training, the partnership also will direct resources to create outreach programs and workforce development for underrepresented population groups, specifically in Massachusetts Gateway Cities.
