“The Coast Guard’s approval for our STCW training and certification is key as The Maritime Foundation continues to develop the Maritime Training and Education Center in Toledo," Marazon said in a release. "The STCW approval, along with our other adult maritime education and recertification programs, positions Toledo as the only place on the Great Lakes where those interested in a maritime career or maritime continuing education will be able to get all of this training and certification at one location."
