The Marine Surveying Academy’s parent company, IIMS, has been formally educating and training marine surveyors for nearly 20 years and is recognised as a leader in the area of marine surveyor education.
The Institute is the only professional body of its kind to offer and award such qualifications in marine surveying and manages and maintains the top-quality education programme on a distance learning basis.
There are two formal IIMS professional qualifications offered that are awarded by the Institute:
Professional Qualification in Commercial Ship Marine Surveying
Professional Qualification in Yacht & Small Craft Marine Surveying
Both IIMS professional qualifications are equivalent to a level 4/5 education qualification. The course content is current and is recognised to be of the highest standard in the industry.
Having gained their professional qualification, students may choose to upgrade to an Advanced Professional level too.
