Recognition Scheme

In applying the principles of quality assurance to the provision of maritime education and training, The Nautical Institute has established a recognition scheme through which maritime products and services may be formally evaluated and recognised for the purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Training product and service providers are invited to submit an application for recognition with supporting evidence using the application form that may be downloaded from this page.

Recognition is defined by The Nautical Institute as the process of evaluating  and endorsing a maritime training product or service which aligns with the constitutional aim of The Nautical Institute of raising professional standards and supporting professional development.

Normally products and services recognised by The Nautical Institute are those which have been considered to meet the following criteria:

  • Availability and accessibility to an international maritime audience
  • Evidence of consultation with industry stakeholders on product or service content
  • Evidence of regular review
  • Not subject to government regulation and audit

Normally recognition is valid for a period of not more than one year. 

The benefits of recognition to providers of maritime training products and services are among the following:

  • Join a group of world-class training providers, recognised by The Nautical Institute.
  • No ‘application’ fee. The Nautical Institute only charges once compliance has been established and not for unsuccessful applications.
  • Successful recognition without a site visit.
  • See your company logo and course advertised on both the and Alexis Platform.
  • Using the CPD logo on your website and promotional material.
  • Recognition certificate for display.
  • 30% discount on books from The Nautical Institute’s range of best practice publications
  • 10% discount on the IMO best sellers when bought from The Nautical Institute.
