Over a million seafarers support the international shipping industry, employed as masters, officers and watch keepers and more.

As an industry that’s inherently international, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) sets minimum standards for seafarers across the globe.

In Australia these standards are enforced by AMSA, and all personnel working on board vessels in Australian waters need an AMSA-endorsed International STCW certificate.

AMC Search provides the broadest range of maritime training courses in the Southern Hemisphere, including many that help seafarers upskill and develop rewarding careers.

Many of our scheduled short courses are relevant to the seafaring sector.
