Maritime Professional Training

As part of skill development, ENSM prepares merchant navy officers for professional deck and engine pathway diplomas. These diplomas, issued by the DIRM, allow for obtaining higher-level certificates after a period of sea service.

The training is provided by the ENSM faculty, which possesses various expertise and relies on high-performance educational equipment, notably simulators.

The certifying body is the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion.

International Candidates

International candidates holding a certificate from another state must contact the Interregional Directorates of the Sea to ensure the recognition of the certificates they hold and to integrate into a training program at ENSM. For all information, contact
