ENQUIRE & PURCHASE COURSES FROM EXPERT INSTRUCTORS, WITH GUARANTEED BOOKINGS

Each school has a list of scheduled courses, with course dates, prices, availability, and training location. Students can apply by doing the following:

 
SEND DIRECT ENQUIRIES

When selecting an in-person course, you’ll at times see an enquiry form requesting your contact details: Name, email, and telephone number. After filling in these details, an enquiry is sent directly to the training provider for the course you are planning attendance. Training providers will receive your request and get in touch. However, responses are not always immediate and can be delayed.

LIVE SESSIONS PURCHASE

When you see a course highlighted in orange, this means that the course is available as a live stream, and you could opt for doing the class remotely. After making a direct booking, the course facilitators will either send you pre-course learning materials before a class commences or send you further information about the course.

Live session courses are great exposure to international audiences; as a seafarer, you will work with people from all over the world, and it’s a great way to learn about different cultures on a truly global platform.

COMPETITIVE RATES

PEACE OF MIND

IN-PERSON PURCHASE:

When you see a course highlighted in blue, this means that the course is available as an in-person course and that you’re opting to do a physical training course at a training providers location.

The benefits of in-person training courses provide a more hands-on experience and a better understanding of the environment to which this training is necessary.

RATE & REVIEW SCHOOLS

Help our industry by leaving a review after attending class and letting your peers know about your experience. Reviews help other students make informed decisions when selecting a training provider and better prepare for their upcoming course.

In addition, leaving a review helps schools know they are doing an outstanding job and builds trust in the community. They will also appreciate this effort.

 
STUDY AT YOUR OWN PACE BUT NEVER SLOW DOWN
Perhaps you’re at sea, or your day job clocks out most of your time—doing self-paced courses give you the freedom to plan when on how you want to learn.

Many students choose this learning method due to the flexibility of obtaining accredited certifications at their own pace. eLearning courses can also enhance your knowledge and experience like traditional classes.

Many studies show students acquire and retain information more quickly through this learning format as they deal with fewer distractions and become more focused on the content.

These modules generally have very little human interaction. Providers typically offer support when required or even a simple check-in to nudge your motivation or see that you are on track.

Study at your own pace
 
 
FIND THE RIGHT BOOKS TO GO WITH YOUR COURSES
 
Even for the most experienced seafarers, choosing the right books or knowing where to get them can be challenging.
We continuously read and recommend books that align with your courses in our ever-growing bookstore. We highly recommend reading the suggested books, as this will enhance your knowledge and support you in making you an expert in your field.

PRE-COURSE LEARNING MATERIALS BY INDUSTRY EXPERTS
Our pre-course learning materials are designed to help students prepare for a course, dig deeper into the topics they’re studying for, and become true experts.


Students who understand the framework before entering a course have an advantage over their peers. It paints a bigger picture per se, you’re prepared for what’s coming, and you know where to research beforehand.

Gaining these additional insights has enhanced the classroom experience and makes your classes interactive and, mostly, more enjoyable.

Note: The more work you put in with these learning materials, the more you will get out of them as they’re not the official study material for a course.
