The Scottish Maritime Academy is the nautical centre of excellence of North East Scotland College. It is a purpose-built training centre and occupies a unique location overlooking the Port of Peterhead where classroom based exercises will often mirror real time vessel within the harbour.

The Academy offers maritime training across both the Merchant Navy and Fishing sectors so expect to meet a mix of those who are just starting out on a maritime career as well as experienced seafarers who are looking to progress.
