Online Courses

Course Image

Supporting professional development is one of The Nautical Institute’s core aims. With this in mind, we have joined with KVH Videotel, a world leader in the provision of e-learning for the maritime industry, to deliver a set of online training courses.

The interactive courses (listed left), which take between 4-40 hours to complete, aim to further knowledge, enhance skills and, ultimately, advance the careers of those mariners seeking to progress.

Each year, Nautical Institute members can access one KVH Videotel course of their choice entirely free of charge.
