Officially inaugurated on the 16th of July 2010, the Mediterranean Maritime Research and Training Centre, rebranded to the name MaritimeMT in May 2018. The Training Centre is still run by MMRTC Society Co-operative Ltd, the training arm of the Malta Maritime Pilots Cooperative Society (MMP). MMP is a cooperative of 16 members composed of highly qualified professionals, all Master Mariners, with vast experience and knowledge of the sector. The jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise is based on the internationally agreed shared values of self-help; self-responsibility; democracy; solidarity; honesty; openness; social responsibility and caring for others.

To keep abreast with the technological advancement in the sector, the MMP cooperative invests heavily in training. Co-financed by EU Funds, National Funds and Private Funds, the training centre encompasses two of the most advanced full mission bridge simulators in Europe. These simulators are used for ship-handling training, as well as, to make risk assessments related to the large vessels that make use of the Maltese ports. The Training Centre also offers training to seafarers and shore based personnel.

MaritimeMT is DNVGL Certified and has full accreditation from Transport Malta. All the pilots, members of the MMP coop are Master Mariner’s certificates holders and can boast world wide experience on different vessel types. Thus MaritimeMT has a pool of expert lecturers who can cater for any eventuality of training and we regularly partner with other education providers, institutions and individuals, to best cater for the needs of the sector.

Today MaritimeMT is a hub that caters for the needs of the local maritime sector through the availability of STCW Training & certification; Ship Handling courses; local authority’s CVR accredited training and any other bespoke training, accredited or not, required by the local maritime sector, whether for seafarers or for shore based personnel. Over 25 different courses are currently being offered at MaritimeMT and more are in the pipeline.

    This maritime academy is absolutely wonderful for people who are wanting to start a career at sea. I am very satisfied with the service. The school is clean and tidy, the building is new and everything top notch and modern. The teachers are all seasoned maritime captains and the front desk and other stuff is maintained by Sue Abela who is very helpful and nice. She makes you feel at home.
