Our academic year runs from mid-January until December, although many of our block/short courses allow students to commence studies throughout the year.

Our courses are structured to minimise disruption to work commitments and many are offered in either modular, flexible or distance learning formats.

All of our maritime courses also include practical hands-on experience using our up-to-date training equipment, computer-based training (CBT) programmes and the full mission bridge and engine room simulation centre. We are associated with Siemens and are the only training provider in New Zealand for PLC training.

Further information on the available courses, entry criteria, Maritime New Zealand mandatory requirements, accommodation, fees and estimated living costs are available for both local and international students.

The following short courses are available in this area of study:
