Maritime Academy

An additional Maritime Academy established by the government through Samoa Shipping Corporation Limited is the breeding place for the Corporation’s new recruits to safely man its vessels.

All graduates have secured employment on board Corporation vessels and students wishing to pursue their career in Maritime are encouraged to apply.

This is based at Vaitele. The school provides professional maritime on-board training which is the focus of SSMA as it provides its training mainly on board SSC vessels and uses competency based tools as a method of assessment.

It also aims to upgrade seafarers at all levels by conducting refresher and upgrading courses to meet the new requirements and modern technology.
