It was established with the idea of providing training upgrades and solutions demanded by the maritime industry. RTC was started by a group of maritime experts on early 2011. The founding members have spent most of their professional career dedicated to the quest of higher standards in maritime education and Training . The group envisioned the establishment of a training center that will mostly cater the needs for revisions brought about by the new STCW- Manila Amendments. The word "Renaissance" in RTC means "resurgence of learning" which was literally directed on the grounds of the future changes in STCW, specifically the 9th resolution of Manila Conference which specifically calls for revision of existing IMO Model Courses and further development of new courses.
