Find out more about the future for Warsash Maritime Academy
We provide high quality education and training for the maritime industries to meet the growing international demand for crew, officers and captains who are trained to the highest professional standards. Navigation, marine engineer and marine electro-technical officers benefit from our internationally recognised certification programmes, from initial entry as an officer cadet up to Master (Captain) and Chief Engineer level.
We also provide a range of short safety training courses (mandatory and non-mandatory) to all maritime personnel for development of skills such as fire fighting and sea survival, as well as continuous professional development modules for more experienced officers.
We pioneered the use of bridge, engine room and liquid cargo operations simulators for higher level training, and our specialist ship handling training facility is the only one in the United Kingdom and one of only a few major centres in the world.
As we are part of Southampton Solent University, we are also able to provide a number of opportunities for professional and personal development and further study up to Master’s degree level
