    Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy gave me a great week of instruction for my STCW certification. The staff is friendly and professional. My only criticism is the breakroom coffee.

    I've taken several classes with MAMA throughout the years. The facilities, instructors, support, and curriculum are always spot on. They teach and supply information in a clear and concise way for students to grasp the information and go to work safely to return to their families as well as adhere to all USCG mandates and requirements.

    Always have had a outstanding opinion of the Academy. The instructors are seasoned professionals, with decades of experience and expertise. Additionally, it’s a fun atmosphere, where the instructors take their job seriously, but don’t take themselves seriously. No attitude,
    just information and education.

    Always good to work with, give 4 vs 5 stars as I got spoiled with big fire fighting fields vs smaller ones. Their approach does work, just the burns are smaller ones in container cross connected to make a basic format to work with. Is enclosed to give the feel of ally space vs "open burns only" - so it does work. Other aspects were good and well managed. Reasonably priced. Not far from the airport (hotel shuttle pickup and some have shuttle to the school too. Car is handy but not required. Can jog to the school from hotels.

    Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy is incredible! I cannot imagine a more professional and technologically advanced maritime school. They have a bridge simulator that is so real you can get seasick on it!

    Captain Ed retired from 30 years of service on the USNS Comfort and decided to usher in the next generation of mariners. They really care to deliver the highest quality of training to keep everybody as safe as possible at sea.

    I highly recommend Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy.

    They don't offer many opportunities and don't teach you much . I was in the 2017 class it seemed like all the females got more opportunities than the dudes . Waste of time plus couldn't focus in class alot of classroom disruptions and the lady Janice has a nasty attitude .
