Last year was marked by challenges for shipowners and seafarers due to the implementation of refresher courses following the Manilla’s amendments. It was a major issue for the school but it managed to meet quickly the very strong demands for courses. This year, the ENSM will welcome seven times more students than last year at the CESAME, survival and rescue at sea training centre.

The ENSM has set up new courses: from ISM internal auditor to the training of Offshore wind staff maritime awareness, the ENSM meets the market and its actors’ needs with innovative courses. The training of ice navigation puts the school at the centre of innovation, with the impending arrival of the Polar Code in 2017. The ENSM is the only centre in France to deliver such specialised courses. In order to meet the demand in the best possible way, the teachers travel, sign on ships, meet specific needs such as the training of trainers for survival in a crisis unit.

The ENSM welcomes clients from the Offshore and iron and steel industries; it also welcomes foreign port officers thanks mainly to its VTS course unique in France and IALA approved; it trains foreign officers in CGO, ECDIS and Human Factors.

As you may have understood, the ongoing education has been one of the school’s priorities for many years, its main goal being the follow-up of the whole of your maritime career. Thanks to exchanges between trainers and professionals, the ongoing education participates in the development of the school and reinforces its reputation in the maritime and paramaritime training sectors.

But without you : shipowners, seafarers, industrials, it wouldn’t be possible. We thank you for your renewed trust, we commit ourselves to listening to your requirements and to meet your specific demands. Be certain that we will keep up our standards so as to deliver the top quality training courses you need to accompany you in your training, innovation and development requirements.
