MITAGS East and West Coast Campuses have reopened for training! We hope you and your family have remained safe and healthy during the pandemic.

Maryland is in Phase Two and Washington State in Phase One of their COVID‐19 reopening plans.  This allows for the limited reopening of certain operations, including our operations at MITAGS’ East and West Coast Campuses. Both campuses opened for training on May 31, 2020 Both campuses opened for training on May 31, 2020. The hotel at MITAGS East opened on Saturday, May 30, 2020 for those needing accommodations. For those needing accommodations in Seattle, unfortunately, the Holiday Inn is not able to accept MITAGS students for the month of June, nor will they be providing transportation to our schoolhouse for the foreseeable future. Additional accommodation options can be found on our website at https://www.mitags.org/seattle-accommodations/

Note that the risk of being infected by COVID‐19 will likely exist until a vaccine becomes readily available. However, MITAGS and the Maritime Conference Center (MCC) are developing and implementing policies and procedures to mitigate this risk to the best of our abilities. Our policies are based on the latest safety guidance from the CDC, state health departments, Coast Guard, and other regulatory authorities. Our procedures will continue to evolve to reflect new guidance and information as it becomes available.

You play a critical role in the success of these procedures by rigorously adhering to best practices for hygiene and infection control. Collectively, we are only as strong as the “weakest link in the chain.”

The links below take you to a series of policies and procedures for attending training at either MITAGS campus during this COVID‐19 health crisis, as well as a list of self‐screening questions you are required to answer.
