Panama prepares workforce for Canal
As part of the preparations for the expanded Panama Canal, the Canal Authority has certified 12 new tugboat captains after successfully completing training.
This is the fourth group of the program which started in 2008 and has certified 47 tugboat captains.
The 12 new captains represent 50 percent of the goal set to meet the demand for the efficient and safe transit of vessels through the new locks of the Panama Canal.
