Tuesday 11 September 2012 Warsash Superyacht Academy is launched at 2012 Monaco Yacht Show

Warsash Maritime Academy (WMA) has announced the launch of a unique venture in collaboration with Southampton Solent University and a distinctive group of established and high-quality service providers to meet demand from the international superyacht industry for premium course provision and business support services.

Warsash Superyacht Academy (WSA) is a flagship new initiative, which draws upon nearly 70 years of WMA’s expertise and heritage as a global leader in maritime education and training to deliver specialist training programmes and business services to the superyacht industry.

The new Academy becomes the only centre in the world able to provide such a comprehensive range of course provision, from entry level training for all crew, to progression training and certification for officers and Captains up to and beyond 3,000gt, and accessible training for career and personal development up to Master’s degree level.

Announcing the launch of WSA, Warsash Director Andrew Hair said: “Our capability to deliver an exclusive, all-encompassing range of high quality course provision for interior, deck and engineering personnel draws upon our experience as a world class and innovative provider of maritime education, training, research and consultancy”.

“Warsash Superyacht Academy will foster the interests of Superyacht personnel, owners and management companies by providing the specialist training and business services required to meet developing needs and elite standards.”

WSA is located within Warsash Maritime Academy’s impressive 17 acre waterside campus close to Southampton, UK, which has an outstanding range of state-of-the-art training facilities and purpose built learning environments. These include a new engine room simulator, a world class full mission bridge simulator, pier head survival craft facilities, a fire fighting school and dedicated workshops and centres for engineering, seamanship and radio communications.

Situated close by at Timsbury Lake, WMA’s world-leading Ship Handling Centre provides specialised training and assessment for Captains and senior officers in ship handling using manned ship models. This unique multi-million pound facility offers a variety of ship handling challenges, including port entry scenarios, berthing manoeuvres, canal transits, narrow channels and turning basins.

“Our teaching faculty is highly respected internationally, attracting some of the most experienced deck and engineering tutors and specialist interior crew trainers. Our students also have access to all of the resources and benefits offered by Southampton Solent University, including its innovative virtual campus and online learning environment for distance learning,” said Andrew Hair.
