What You’ll Learn

As you learn to become a ship’s officer or captain, you’ll gain skills employing the latest technology. Our specialist training provides you with the leadership skills and confidence you need to pursue your maritime career.

What to expect

Our courses are available to anyone interested in Nautical training. A good place to start would be with the Continuing Education course: Introduction to Nautical Careers.

Located at our Interurban campus, the Nautical training programs vary in length and are all offered full-time.
