Maritime English

Maritime English Courses

Owing to its international nature, the maritime sector relies on workers from across the world. As a result, having a good command of Maritime English is essential. It is also a requirement of the STCW convention for maritime officers. Maritime procedures are often handled by crew members of different nationalities and using a common language is key. Key elements are outlined by the STCW convention where maritime professionals must use Maritime English. It includes safety and security on-board, emergency situations, on-board communication, customer service on passenger ships, and communication with maritime authorities.
