Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities, World Wide Academy, is hosting a Master of AtoN Management course from 3 to 7 December 2018 at IALA Headquarters, St Germain-en-Laye, France.
IALA Standard 1050 on training and certification recommends that national Competent Authorities and the accredited training organisations (ATOs) in their country utilise model courses concerned with the provision of Aids to Navigation services, in accordance with IALA Recommendations O-149 and R0141.
To assist Member States to conform to its standard provisions and to claim compliance to that standard, the IALA World-Wide Academy has drafted a new model course L1.2 entitled Master of Aids to Navigation Managementwhich is an extension of the existing IALA Level 1 AtoN Manager course.

More than 250 participants had the opportunity last month to nurture and deepen the good relationship between Hamburg and St Petersburg at the Port Evening staged by Port of Hamburg in St Petersburg.
Since 1957 Hamburg and St Petersburg have developed strong economic, cultural, social and scientific contacts. The ports of both cities have had good business contacts yet with the politically tense situation existing Hamburg and St Petersburg are still maintaining their dialogue and close business cooperation.
15 years ago Port of Hamburg Marketing (HHM) opened a representative office in St Petersburg. In honour of this anniversary Dr Torsten Sevecke, State Secretary, for the Ministry of Economics, Transport and Innovation in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, travelled to St Petersburg at HHM’s invitation.
