MNTB Recognition Services

The new mark of quality for seafarer training

With a wide variety of seafarer training offered across the UK, how can the best courses and the most professional training centres stand out from the crowd?

The new MNTB Recognition Services provide the answer. The MNTB is the authoritative centre of expertise and information on seafarer education and training and careers at sea, and has played a huge part in the development and delivery of seafarer training since its inception in 1935.

Through this new programme, the MNTB gives official recognition to seafarer training that meet its demanding quality criteria. Both Centre Recognition and Course Recognition services are available.

Carrying the ‘MNTB Recognised’ quality mark offers an important and very visible differentiator when centres market their seafarer training courses.

“This scheme will raise awareness that the UK maritime industry as a whole is offering quality provision, and that we go above the minimum standards. It fulfils a distinct need in terms of providing a third-party check on courses that have no other obvious awarding body.”
Mark Jaenicke, Maritime Skills Academy
“We want to recognise and reward the excellent standards of training delivered to our seafarers both nationally and internationally – and what better way to do that than recognising quality course provision delivered through quality centres?”
Kathryn Neilson, MNTB
“We believe that not all training is equal. While there is a minimum standard set for educational achievement, there is nothing that judges the facilities, delegate welfare and customer service level of a centre. The MNTB Course Recognition service does just that. It allows those companies that believe elements such as state-of-the-art training facilities, highly skilled instructors and excellent levels of customer service are all fundamental to setting the bar high, to prove it.”
Colin McMurray, Clyde Training Solutions
