Deciding which training facility is better than another isn’t necessarily an apple-to- apples exercise. That said; we ask: what constitutes a Top Maritime School? In terms of resources – the backbone of any successful school now includes some sort of simulation – and when it comes to the current job market, the measurement of the quality of mariners and maritime professionals often depends upon the increasingly popular use of “assessments.” These assessments in turn frequently depend on sophisticated simulators. But, training and education goes far beyond that. Using your own set of metrics, see where your school stacks up against the lineup we’ve chosen below.
