The CMI is a dynamic ISO 9001:2008 certified institution and the Regions Centre of Excellence for tertiary maritime, logistics, engineering training, research and consultancy. It is a corporate body established under the Jamaica Maritime Institute’s (JMI) Act of 1992 and operates under the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing. The institution is proactive in identifying the needs of the market (locally, regionally and internationally) and seeks to expand its programme offerings in “oepari pasu with the expansion of market demand.

The history and growth of the Institution over the years demonstrate an intimate connection with the needs of the international shipping industry. From just two programmes at its inauguration in 1980 and 30 students, the Institute has grown to become the tertiary centre of excellence in the region, offering over 16 programmes including Masters and Bachelor Degrees and a multiplicity of demand driven customized programmes.

In recognition of t he diversity of the technical and academic competencies within the Institute and in the interest of good governance and accountability, the CMI is organised into three Schools Marine and Professional studies, Academics and Advanced Skills.

The Marine and Professional School focuses on the core seafarers Standard of Training Certification and Watch Keeping Convention (STCW 95), IMO courses leading up to the level of captain, chief engineer and chief mate. The Academic School manages the Associate Degrees, Diplomas, Bachelors and Masters Degrees and spearheads general research based activities. The School of Advanced Skills concentrates on hands on competency based training to meet the needs of the growing shipping and logistics sectors including, alternative energy, engineering projects, business development, entrepreneurship and the Career Advancement Programme (CAP).

In an effort to ensure the highest standards of education and training within the three Schools, the CMI has adopted relevant quality assurance measures. The University Council of Jamaica (UCJ) provides the quality framework for the entire programme offerings of the School of Academic Studies. The offerings of the Marine and Professional Studies School are authorised by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). With a view to ensuring quality standards of training in the Advanced Studies School, National Council on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (NCTVET) accreditation status has been attained by the Institute. The accreditation of these programmes is one bench mark of excellence that the Institute upholds.

The foremost aim of the CMI is to alleviate local unemployment and exploit the world wide acute shortage of seafarers. Indeed the Maritime Industry Analyst, Drewry Shipping Consultants have estimated a worldwide shortage of 34,000 qualified officers, against a total requirement of 498,000. Moreover, based on Drewry’s fleet growth projections and the assumpti on that officer supply will only increase at the current rate, the report predicts that by 2012, the officer shortfall will have grown to 83,000. It is within this context that the continuity of education and training for seafarers up to the management level at the CMI is of utmost importance.

The potential for growth is tremendous in this dynamic industry, especially in the area of energy and in particular, its conservation. CMI has embarked on a number of energy based projects which are managed and executed through the Institute’s Renewable Energy and Productivity Centre under the School of Advanced Skills. These projects include, but are not limited to the assembly, installation and distribution of alternative energy equipment and water purification. They facilitate training, avenues of employment, entrepreneurship, certification, innovation, safety, discipline and environmental protection - tenets which are highly promoted by the Institute.

The University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) dates its beginning from 1958, originally as the Jamaica Institute of Technology. In 1959 the name of the institution was changed to the College of Arts, Science and Technology and it became incorporated in the College of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) Scheme of 1959. This was validated by an Act of Parliament in 1964. In 1986, the CAST Scheme was revised in order to make the College a degree-granting institution, and the College became legally empowered to conduct its affairs under a governing Council and Academic Board.

The institution was formally accorded University status on September 1, 1995 as the University of Technology, Jamaica. The University of Technology, Jamaica Act 27 - 1999, which makes permanent provisions for the establishment of the University of Technology, Jamaica, was approved by Parliament on June 8, 1999 and signed into law by the Governor General on June 29, 1999.

UTECH has academic offerings, wit h emphasis on flexibility of approach, work-based learning and professional linkages. The Flexibility in UTECH academic offerings is reflected in the various modes of programme delivery, which include full-time and part-time and cooperative work based programmes.

In addition, several programmes are franchised in a number of Community Colleges and most programmes are linked to national and international professional organisations. UTECH has brought hope and a sense of pride to the citizens of Western Jamaica with the advent of the UTECH Western Campus, which has opened its doors at the Trelawny Multipurpose stadium.

On Wednesday, September 7, 2011, UTECH hosted an Opening Ceremony and Information Session at the stadium, which was attended by a large gathering of members of government, civic leaders, educators, students and citizens who came to witness the historic event.

MBI was established in 1971 under the auspices of the Christian Brethren in Jamaica. It was started through the spiritual vision of Mr. Emile Turner, a Jamaican Missionary, wh o became founder President. Mr Frank Fenton, an English Missionary, was its first Principal.

MBI started out in a building on the 15-acre Christian Brethren property at Mineral Heights occupied by Midland Training Centre (which now houses the Midland Preparatory School). In 1980 the Lord miraculously provided the present facilities at Curatoe Hill, which encourages expansion and growth.

During the Fall Semester of 2003, the Bible College was closed in order to allow necessary building works to be carried out. It was during this period that Midland Bible Institute was registered as a limited company with the Office of the Registrar of Companies in Jamaica with a newly formed Board of Directors. These events marked a significant step in the reorganization of MBI.

At MBI, we are committed to prep aring men and women to be teachers of God's Word, for service and ministry in missions, discipleship, local and cross-cultural evangelism, education and leadership for the general advancement of the Kingdom of God.

The aim of MBI is expressed in our motto: Training the whole man to reach the whole world. We seek academic excellence for each student through careful training and instruction in the Word of God, and seek to develop disciplined lives surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ.
