TrainForTrade, in cooperation with the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) local organising committee, will deliver Module 2 of the Modern Port Management Course from 11 – 14 May 2018 in Port Harcourt. 26 middle managers (including 6 women) from the port communities of Nigeria who are enrolled in the UNCTAD TrainForTrade Port Management Programme will participate in the course.
The module will be delivered by a port expert from Ghana, along with senior managers from NPA who have been certified by TrainForTrade as local trainers.
The second of the eight training modules examines the port as a system, in particular the actions that a country could take in connection with port facilities to ensure that national ports (big or small; local, regional or national) develop and function efficiently.
Nigeria is currently undergoing the second cycle of the Port Management Programme.
