Due to growing demand, the MMTA is forced to organize training courses for a group of 25 students per month in the area of safety and first aid. The courses are for a period of about six weeks. The Ministry of Public Infrastructure and Transportation insists that the MMTA is the only institution authorized to provide training in order to work on cruise ships and other vessels.
The public is advised that only the institution is authorized to issue 'Safety Certificates'. Other institutions, which are not approved by the ministry and that issue these certificates, shall be punished by law.

These pleasure craft had carried about 11,318 passengers. According to a senior official of the MPA, the demands made by these ships to dock in Les Salines are very encouraging, especially in a difficult economic environment in Europe.
