The Maritime Skills Academy is helping the industry set new standards by delivering a new level of marine, safety, simulator and hospitality training. Today, with a focus on personal service, we offer over 500 expert courses to over 5,000 delegates annually. As a Maritime & Coastguard Agency, Global Wind Organisation and GUEST accredited course provider and MNTB recognised centre, we are as proud to be meeting the high standards of commercial operators as we are in supporting individuals to maintain or build their professional development. 

With training centres in Dover and Portsmouth, we offer STCW Safety, commercial Fire, GWO, Hospitality and now Deck and Engine Simulator training. The Maritime Skills Academy is Viking Maritime’s vision for a new type of academy. Offering complete training management, these are world-class centres with state-of-the-art facilities supporting delegates from around the world; whether from the cruise industry, private yacht crews and marine shipping crew or increasingly those working in offshore/renewables and maritime construction. 

The Maritime Skills Academy is perfectly located for global shipping clients and maritime professionals seeking world class training.
