    • The KIMFT conducts various education and training courses necessary for the seafarers of domestic and international merchant marines and fishing ships.
      • The KIMFT located at the port of Busan, gateway to one of the advanced shipping nations in the 21st century, is paying its utmost efforts as always been for bringing up competent human resources in maritime and fisheries fields through exercising long time and high proficiency.

I earnestly ask for your criticism whenever the Institute moves in the wrong way and also kindly request your concerns and tenderness for endeavoring figures. Thank you very much.
