Marine Operations

The training and education of crew is a vital aspect in the manning policy for any shipping company; simulator training and practical working knowledge in the field of Marine Operations play an important part in enhancing skills and meeting the needs of companies. We have a full range of courses from mandatory training for Deck Officers to a range of short courses such as MCA, RYA, Personal Safety and Social Responsibility (PSSR) and Personal Survival Techniques (PST) for the professional development of Merchant Navy Officers and crew.

We provide theory-based yachting courses for the local community and leisure industry.
