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.

Governor Hogan was accompanied by Mary Beth Tung, the Director of the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA), and Elizabeth Kretovic, representing Ørsted U.S.  The MEA is working to advance offshore wind energy in the region, and MITAGS is developing training programs for the offshore workers who will build and service the platforms.

The vist was covered in prime time by Baltimore’s ABC News affiliate, WMAR (Click Here to see the report), and the Governor Hogan talked about his visit on his Facebook and Twitter pages.
