Alaska has more coastline than all the
other United States combined. Alaska's maritime environment is one of
the most challenging in the world. Safely transporting passengers and
freight or carrying out commercial fishing operations in Alaskan waters
requires well-qualified captains and crew members.
The goal of the Alaska Maritime Training Center is to promote safe
marine operations by effectively preparing captains and crew members for
employment in the Alaskan maritime industry.
The Alaska Maritime Training Center is a United States Coast Guard approved
training facility located in Seward, Alaska, and offers USCG/STCW compliant
maritime training. In addition to the standard courses offered, customized
training is available to meet the specific needs of maritime companies. Courses
are delivered through the use of our world class ship simulator, state of the
art computer based navigational laboratory and modern classrooms equipped with
the latest instructional delivery technologies.
To provide Alaskans with the skills and technical knowledge to enable
them to be productive in our continually evolving maritime industry.
