Mauritius and Seychelles are achieving the full programme in maritime data analysis. The previous sessions were delivered in 2018 (May, June and October 2018); this fourth and final session was attended by the 14 participants who successfully completed the test following the previous sessions. They learned the alert warning process, maritime intelligence and maritime strategic challenges in the Indian Ocean; they deepened their knowledge in law of the sea, oil and gas offshore installations, and they practiced with simulation exercises.
Today they are certified “analyst in the maritime domain” after having developed their training skills and deepened their knowledge in maritime domain issues.
