TMS Cardiff Gas Ltd established in 2016 a first class Maritime training provider, named TMS Training Center, with the aim of providing in-house training to both shore based personnel and the Seafarers of TMS Group of Companies such as TMS Tankers Ltd.
Training is an added value to our Officers and shore-based staff enhancing Safety at sea. There is a need to continue training beyond initial qualifications in order to maintain, upgrade and update skills and competencies throughout working life.
