Several members of the association have offered to host
employees from other ports and harbors for OJT at their facilities.
This represents an opportunity for members to exchange knowledge
and promote the career development of their employees. With other
harbors participating, harbor officers getting this OJT will
see how operationa are conducted in more than one facility and
will be able to bring good information and comparisons back to
their employing port or harbor.
Training will include accompanying harbor officers in the
course of routine duties, orientation in local port and harbor
facilities, familiarization with Standard Operating Procedures(SOP)
and time with the facility's management to discuss topics that
do not occur on a regular basis.
The host facility will not charge for this training, but
participating members will be responsible for the cost of transportation
and per diem for their employees. The host facility will attempt
to accommodate trainees and fit them into their normal operations.
The following facilities have volunteered the host OJT
- Homer - Bill Abbott
- Kodiak - Marty Owen
