A new IT platform covering all aspects of The Nautical Institute's accreditation and certification activities has been launched. Visit the NI Alexis Platform at: http://www.nialexisplatform.org
Accreditation is defined by The Nautical Institute as the systematic verification of the processes, procedures, methods and techniques employed to deliver a maritime training product or service in accordance with standards defined, co-developed or approved by The Nautical Institute.
Accredited training providers have demonstrated that their product or service meets the standard required for Nautical Institute accreditation. This award is normally valid for a period of not more than three years.
The Nautical Institute offers a wide range of accreditation services, from being the sole recognised certification provider for Dynamic Positioning Traning to providing one-off audits for compliance against a known standard. It has the capability to operate a full international certification scheme or to work on behalf of Flag Administrations as a designated authority.
