Course Aim:
The aim of the course is to afford the student the opportunity to obtain the National Diploma in Maritime Studies which is accepted by maritime commerce and industry, as well as the SAMSA certificate of competency which will enable students to serve on vessels as certificated Deck Officers.

The qualified person will have the requisite levels of theoretical knowledge, understanding and practical proficiency to establish a successful career in the shipping industry.

The course provide an opportunity for deck officers (or aspirant deck officers) to obtain both a National Diploma and a STCW compliant certificate of competency.

Career opportunities also exist in the shore-based maritime industry, particularly for those persons who ultimately wish to terminate their sea-going employment.
