MCA Theory Courses Online

Ocean Training Online are leading innovators in online maritime training and we are able to offer a superb choice of MCA Distance Learning packages which lead to fully recognized MCA Qualifications.

The Manila 2010 amendmens introduced the concept of "Blended Learning" to all seafarers

Ocean Training are the first to offer a full Blended Learning range of courses. Basically all the course theory is learnt at home or at sea enabling you to "Earn While You Learn" When you pass your theory with Ocean Training Online you can then proceed to our partner college - The City of Glasgow College in Scotland - to take the practical elements (Bridge Simulator, STCW modules etc.)

This way of learning means that you do not need to go to a nautical college full time to do the theory - only the practice. This will save you a great deal of time and money
