Certification of maritime education and training providers

We certify that your quality management system complies with the DNV standard for Maritime Training Providers (DNV-ST-0029).

Do you need to prove to the maritime and offshore market and to a maritime administration that, as a maritime training provider, you are successfully maintaining a quality management system?

Our DNV-ST-0029 Maritime Training Providers standard has been especially designed to cater for the needs of maritime educators.

It is applicable to organisations such as academies, training centres and simulator centres in both the maritime and offshore sectors. However, it can also apply to other sectors.

When using our standard to set up your quality management system you can easily align your existing structures and processes with the standard’s prescribed requirements. Furthermore, you can quickly identify requirements already covered and areas which need further attention in order to achieve DNV SeaSkill™ certification. This certificate is then valid for five years, subject to annual audits.

By implementing our DNV-ST-0029 Maritime Training Providers standard, you are strengthening both the design of your learning programmes as well as the delivery processes.

Through the audit and certification process we verify that you consistently analyse and adhere to applicable mandatory regulations, thus supporting your legal compliance.

Boost your reputation with our certification:

  • Receive a reputable DNV certificate as evidence of compliance
  • Strengthen your reputation and market recognition
  • Increase the awareness of your objectives and align efforts to reach them more effectively
  • Stand out from non-certified institutions, improving your relations with the government and ship managers
