The Seamanship Centre

The Seamanship Centre has a worldwide reputation for outstanding maritime training. Our first class teaching staff and excellent industry standard facilities allow us to offer some of the best maritime training in the world in a flexible, friendly and professional manner. We offer professional industry training to international shipping companies, the offshore and yachting industries.

We are MCA, MSO, RYA and ISA approved training providers. At The Seamanship Centre we pride ourselves in going the extra mile to ensure that our students have a worthwhile experience and leave us having upped their game and passed the exam. To this end we will arrange extra tuition in the evenings, if an exam candidate is finding the going a bit tough or has difficulty with a specific task or concept. We do not charge extra for this but believe that as we rely on word of mouth to fill our classes that our extra effort will be rewarded by positive referrals to new clients.
