Formal maritime education for seagoing personnel consists of secondary maritime education and university Bachelor's and Master's Programs.
The seafarer's learning experience does not end after graduation; after finishing a program for cadets, depending on the rank and ship type, you will be required to take and pass specialized STCW courses. The education of a seafarer is an ongoing life-long process, and basically lasts until the retirement age.
Due to the significance of maritime education, it is important to select the right education partner. You can find all relevant secondary and high maritime education institutions for your country in the Maritime Connector directory.
