marlins seatec training

Established in 1994 to provide English language training solutions for the shipping industry, Marlins has expanded the range of training products and services to provide a range of packages including vocational training courses for seafarers. Marlins work with hundreds of companies worldwide which give insight into crewing and training issues in almost every key crew supply country.

Marlins English Language Training (ELT) products are known and used internationally to assess and develop English language competency levels and, the eLearning (CBT) products have been adopted fleet-wide by leading ship managers to help train mixed nationality seafarers both on board and on shore. Included in the range of services is the delivery of one-off training sessions, the set up and management of training programs at crewing sites worldwide and the development of bespoke training products.

In partnership with the sister company SeaTec, the onboard training services are designed to review familiarization of equipment and assess the emergency preparedness of the crew. Both Marlins & SeaTec are located at Glasgow, Scotland.
