Earn Your Maritime Credentials Now
The Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy’s (MAMA) Maritime Boot Camp program is designed to produce fully credentialed and professionally trained mariners that are qualified to join any US Merchant Vessel at the entry level. Students will obtain their Transportation Worker’s Identification Card (TWIC), their US Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC), and will be rated by Standards of Training and Certification for Watchkeepers (STCW-95). These credentials, basic skills training, career skills training specific to the industry, and an “on the job” training opportunity, produce a strongly competitive candidate for employment.
About The Program
The first month of training takes place in the classroom and at MAMA approved facilities. The second portion includes an on-the-job internship of up to 120 hours (average 40 hrs/ week over 3 weeks, but schedules depend on individual company operations). During classroom training, individuals are expected to successfully complete several courses. Classroom hours are typically 7:30am- 4pm, Monday- Friday.
