The name Trimco stands short for TRaining, Instruction and Maritime COnsultancy. The company was founded in 2010 by Dutch Captain Cor de Ridder. Trimco perceives the maritime world from a training perspective, and by enhancing skills and competences already made a large contribution over the years.
We live by our slogan: “We Provide Safety To Towage”, and strongly believe that raising skills and competences over the complete range of disciplines, will ultimately raise the safety level of the entire operation! Weather it is the tug-master, the Pilot or the ship’s captain that needs training / instruction, Trimco can service all.
Our overall product is “ship-handling with tug assistance”. Obviously, that includes several tug-handling courses, but also Pilot and ship’s Master training. We have developed a wide variety of curricula, covering all aspects of ship handling with tug assistance. All courses carry a common thread, but are tailor made to meet pre-set goals and trainee exit levels.
