Three Reasons to Seek International Institutional or Professional Collaborations:

Partnering with an institution can be just as valuable for a higher education institution’s growth as purchasing a service from a vendor.

When we look for solutions at our academic institutions, we often overlook partnering with other institutions as we search for vendors. Although many consortia are established solely for the purpose of facilitating institutional partnerships and collaboration, their value is far too often overlooked. Institutions should look to consortia models and other opportunities for institutional partnerships for several reasons:


  1. Profit Motive

While the institution supplying the service will want to cover its costs, profits do not have to be the driving factor in establishing a price. Unlike for-profit vendors, institutions have no shareholders demanding competitive pricing, thus freeing them up to establish a pricing schedule that is mutually beneficial without necessarily having to meet a profit motive.


  1. Expertise

Colleges and universities house a wealth of experience and knowledge. Whether the expertise required is academic, professional or service based, institutions have the in-house knowledge readily available to address an issue. Tapping into this expertise is likely easier than you think.


  1. Shared Risk

In many smaller institutions, it may not be feasible to offer a degree program or chartered professional certifications without partnering with another institution. With combined enrollments, a degree program and Chartered Professional Cortication’s can flourish, not just survive. Additionally, partnering with an institution known for its expertise in a particular area minimizes the learning curve and the mistakes from going it alone.


At CIMPTMP, USA, we help institutions establish their programs online and also on campus. Currently, we are working with over twenty private & government institutions, professional Bodies and also maritime colleges to bring their programs on chartered professional certification. The collaboration benefits the partner schools by assisting their faculty in the conversion of their courses, providing high-end learning management systems and professional courses (which they simply could not afford on their own) and a 24/7/365 call center for their students.


And, best of all, they become member of the International recognized Chartered Professional Body with no cost. They have access to our instructional designer and information technology staff, thus enabling a smooth transition; all at a fraction of the cost of building the infrastructure by themselves.


But what is in it for CIMPTMP and its member schools? Because the pricing from our learning management system provider is based on a sliding scale, the more we use it, the less expensive it becomes. Since we started helping other institutions bring their programs online and running our Chartered Professional Courses on their campus, we have lowered our cost per enrollment by 71 percent for the professional programs and learning management system.


What was once our second-largest cost, behind International Certifications programs, now actually costs us less with more than one billions enrollments across the world.


We are currently accepting Collaborations from Maritime Universities and Academy, Government Ports Authorities and non-Governmental Organization across the world.

In keeping to its tradition of educating and promoting the value that marine, port and terminal practicing professionals add to their different organization, professions, communities and the continents as a whole.

Chartered Institute of Marine, Port and Terminal Management Professionals, through its professional membership education committee, continues to conducts compulsory continuing membership education and training courses.

This training courses are designed for the purpose of focusing upon the maintenance of professional’s knowledge and developing skills for MPT professionals.  In order to maintain and expand the current knowledge and skill of practicing professional, the institute is constantly carrying out the professional membership continuing education and training (PMCET and HIPOT) courses every month across each country in the continents.

This is informed by the vital need to react promptly to environmental changes as they affect the philosophies and practice of professionals. On this note, it is mandatory that all members of the Institute must avail themselves the opportunity of PMCET and HIPOT workshops (at least once or twice a year) to enhance their professional and practicing skills.

Attendances at PMCET and HIPOT workshop will serve as one of the requirement for membership update and will be used as eligibility for upgrading membership status. This will also be used as a basic parameter, among others to determine eligibility to serve on the council and committees of the council of the Institute.

Members are therefore enjoined to affirm their loyalty to the profession and the Institute by adhering strictly to the above guidelines. Kindly visit our training calendar for up-to date on our upcoming events.





To publish is to make content available to the general public. While specific use of the term may vary among countries, it is usually applied to text, images, or other audio-visual content on any traditional medium, including paper (newspapers, magazines, catalogs, etc.). The word publication means the act of publishing, and also refers to any printed copies.


“Publication” is a technical term in legal contexts and especially important in copyright legislation. An author of a work generally is the initial owner of the copyright on the work. One of the copyrights granted to the author of a work is the exclusive right to publish the work.


In the United States, publication is defined as:


The distribution of copies or phonorecords of a work to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership, or by rental, lease, or lending. The offering to distribute copies or phonorecords to a group of persons for purposes of further distribution, public performance, or public display, constitutes publication. A public performance or display of a work does not of itself constitute publication.

To perform or display a work “publicly” means –


(1) To perform or display it at a place open to the public or at any place where a substantial number of persons outside of a normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances is gathered; or

(2) to transmit or otherwise communicate a performance or display of the work to a place specified by clause (1) or to the public, by means of any device or process, whether the members of the public capable of receiving the performance or display receive it in the same place or in separate places and at the same time or at different times.


—17 USC 101

Furthermore, the right to publish a work is an exclusive right of the copyright owner (17 USC 106), and violating this right (e.g. by disseminating copies of the work without the copyright owner’s consent) is a copyright infringement (17 USC 501(a)), and the copyright owner can demand (by suing in court) that e.g. copies distributed against his will be confiscated and destroyed (17 USC 502, 17 USC 503).


The definition of “publication” as “distribution of copies to the general public with the consent of the author” is also supported by the Berne Convention, which makes mention of “copies” in article 3(3), where “published works” are defined. In the Universal Copyright Convention, “publication” is defined in article VI as “the reproduction in tangible form and the general distribution to the public of copies of a work from which it can be read or otherwise visually perceived.” Many countries around the world follow this definition, although some make some exceptions for particular kinds of works. In Germany, §6 of the Urheberrechtsgesetz additionally considers works of the visual arts (such as sculptures) “published” if they have been made permanently accessible by the general public (i.e., erecting a sculpture on public grounds is publication in Germany). Australia and the UK (as the U.S.) do not have this exception and generally require the distribution of copies necessary for publication. In the case of sculptures, the copies must be even three-dimensional.
