The Ethiopian Maritime Training Institute (EMTI) is located in Bahir Dar on Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile.
EMTI selects its Cadets from across the country to train at its newly built state-of-the-art facilities in Bahir Dar. All EMTI Cadets are prudently selected mechanical and electrical engineers that succeeded as top performers at Ethiopian universities.
EMTI is currently expanding its training facilities and shall complete construction of its Training Center Building in the fall of 2013. The Maritime Academy’s training facility will comply with national and international standards.
Over the next 24 months, EMTI is expanding the campus capacity over an 18 hectare training complex. This campus will feature modern equipped classrooms, engine and electrical workshops, ARI engine simulators, STCW safety training facilities, additional dormitories, libraries and recreational facilities to accommodate up to 1,000 Cadets annually.
