About us

MARITAS delivers SQA and MCA approved training throughout UK, in France and Sardinia. In principle, our flexible model could be used anywhere in the world.

As part of out provision for courses leading to seafarers’ certificates of competency, we operate a mobile Transas ship simulator that enables us to take MCA approved ECDIS, NAEST, radar and ECS training to the customer’s venue.

The MARITAS organisation consists of an extensive network of people. All are experienced seafarers qualified to senior level as officers in the Merchant Navy. Our managers have worked at senior level in UK nautical colleges with qualifications and experience to match. They bring that ‘big college’ perspective to the technical content and quality of our courses while focusing clearly on customer needs and a personal approach.

MARITAS has been involved in the development and delivery of maritime education, training and assessment at the highest levels for many years, including writing many of the current near coastal deck qualification units for Maritime Studies Qualification pathways. By way of example, our MD has served on the executive of IAMI, served on the Nautical Institute’s Professional Development Committee for over 10 years and is currently chair of the NWA’s Training Group.
