The Academy has a specialised and dedicated team of fully qualified and experienced seaferers, and is the main provider of nautical training in the North-East of Scotland, offering courses such as Merchant Navy Deck Officer courses; Fishing Courses; HNC/D Nautical Science and short courses, including RYA courses.  It also incorporates a state of the art full mission bridge simulator for use by local and international clients.

Uniquely siituated at the entrance to Peterhead overlooking the Marina, the Academy provides our students with inspirational views across the bay.  The Academy has a cafe and restaurant in the same building offering a range of snacks/meals for users from early morning to late evening.  A soft seating area is available for students to relax and study at their leisure.
