The International Maritime Lecturers Association (IMLA) provides a professional global forum for exchanging information and discussing issues related to Maritime Education and Training (MET). Thus, the membership of IMLA is composed largely of MET lecturers from all over the world. Many of these dedicated individuals have been working within maritime education and training for years, and are recognised as excellent teachers, researchers and managers and as a result help to improve the quality of MET and raise the profile and image of MET locally and globally. In order to recognize and promote their academic accomplishments, diligence and dedication to MET, IMLA has launched the “MET Educators” column on the IMLA webpage to publicize and profile these often forgotten successful professionals. Those nominated are generally,  recommended by their MET institutes and further verified by IMLA.
