About the Program: The Africa Maritime Security Initiative (AMSI) program aims to improve African partners’ maritime governance and enforcement, sustainment and preventive maintenance, and regional interoperability by building their capacity to address threats such as transnational organized crime; piracy; armed robbery at sea; illegal fishing; and the trafficking of arms, drugs, and persons. These illegal maritime activities contribute to regional instability and enable transnational illegal and extremist organizations to operate. Failure to address these threats jeopardizes economic development in Africa and compromises trade opportunities for the United States.

GN maritime maintenance technicians are currently generalists and will complete all curricula. This broad-spectrum maritime maintenance training will support the GN to maintain higher operational readiness rates of maritime security equipment.

The Senior Trainer shall report to the Project Manager and serve as the Contractor’s lead on curriculum development and training implementation.
