GOST holds annual training seminar

Global Ocean Security Technologies recently hosted nearly 100 dealers at its annual sales and technical training seminar at the Bahia Mar Resort in Fort Lauderdale.

The one-day seminar featured an overview of Global Ocean Security Technologies’ product line, sales and marketing tips and an advance look at new products in development, training in vessel security system installation, programming, customer service and support, followed by a certification test, according to the company.

The seminar also featured a demonstration of a complete GOST system installed aboard a 62 Azimut provided by the vessel security consulting firm Phantom Services.

“The classroom training went great, but to have our attending dealers be able to experience a complete GOST security, tracking, monitoring, video surveillance, acoustic deterrent and cloaking system in action provides a unique and memorable training experience,” GOST director of business development Brian Kane said in a statement.
