We believe in you Maritime Academy Online

Welcome to Maritime Academy Online

About us

Maritime Academy Online (MAO) offers a wide variety of courses covering all aspects and sectors of the maritime industry. Only the leading and experienced professors, practitioners, and tutors teach our courses. We make sure that all courses comply with our stringent requirements before they become available.


Most schools and universities focus on theories and abstract ideas. MAO has a different approach to the courses it offers. Our courses are tailored to the industry’s real needs, and not just theoretical knowledge that you will only use in a classroom. In fact, once you complete any of our courses, you will be able to successfully apply it in practice, as well as further your career and confidence in your workplace. Since all of our professors and tutors work in the field, you can rest assured that our courses are always up to date, and are constantly re-evaluated and adjusted to meet the demands of the ever-changing maritime industry.


MAO will assist you in gaining the necessary knowledge and expertise in order for you to change or advance your career. We cooperate with some of the leading recruitment agencies, which, subject to your approval, will keep your profile on file. The possibilities are limitless.

Mode of Delivery

All MAO’s courses are based online, but will only require an internet connection during tests and exams. This option will benefit all mariners, especially those who have limited internet access during the course of the voyage.

All study materials can be downloaded. This allows our students to study wherever and whenever they have a moment to spare.

A certificate of successful completion of a given course will be sent to the student’s personal address free of charge. The best student of any given course will also receive a special gift package and will be included in our Hall of Fame.


Our mission is to deliver high-quality education via online solutions at the lowest price possible. Unlike many maritime academies that overcharge the seafarers and other professionals for the courses they offer, we offer excellent value without sacrificing quality. We are able to keep costs down thanks to our innovative tutors' remuneration scheme.

MAO’s education gives everyone interested in maritime industry an equal opportunity to gain valuable and practical knowledge.
