MITAGS-East and the Maritime Conference Center hosted Maryland Governor Larry Hogan today for a property tour and some hands-on ship driving experience in our simulators. Governor Hogan reached out last week requesting the visit, wanting to learn more about MITAGS’ world-renowned job training and adult continuing education facility and conference center.
