Class sizes are small enabling lecturers to offer as much, or as little support as you require.
Overlooking the marina and port of Peterhead, we are able to replicate real time vessel activity within classroom training scenarios.
We are a purpose-built training centre and delegates will have access (course content dependent) to the following: ECDIS suite with 1-on-1 workstations; Transas simulator with 3 training bridges; radio simulation room; net hall; chart rooms and library.
There is a coffee shop housed within the training centre which serves a range of hot and cold snacks / lunches.
We design bespoke courses for shipping companies to meet specific training requirements such as ship handling; bridge resource management and linesman training.
If you are an employer and would like to discuss how the Academy can help you then please contact Linda Hope.
