We provide tailor-made training programmes for each client. Based on their requirements, these range from short-term vessel familiarisation courses to long-term support and development of crew and maintenance staff. Damen training programmes are developed and executed according to an ISO 9001:2015 certified management system and in close contact with maritime education institutes.

Our courses strike a balance between theoretical and practical skills. In all cases, our aim is the same; helping you to have skilled, motivated and committed employees contributing to reduced operational costs and increased uptime.
