Galileo Maritime Academy has this month announced the completion of its new architect designed professional crew training center and crew residence in Phuket, Thailand.

The “T” shaped buildings comprise state-of-the-art training and recreation rooms, a seafarer medical center, a culinary arts and hospitality school, a three meter deep survival training pool and first class accommodation for 30 students.

This central complex is located just above Yacht Haven Marina, the largest superyacht marina in Asia, with spectacular views over Phang Nga Bay and is just a few minutes drive from Phuket International Airport.  Students can walk to all the Galileo campus facilities in the 200 acre site which includes a marine engineering school, a survival craft and fast rescue boats training jetty, an advanced fire-fighting school and 8 training vessels moored in the marina.

Galileo is accredited by the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and approved to provide 21 MCA professional seafarer courses and to issue MCA Certificates of Proficiency including basic and advanced STCW qualifications and refresher courses. Over the last five years Galileo Maritime Academy has established itself as the flag-ship MCA training center for professional seafarers in this region and the only such comprehensively approved and equipped facility in Asia. Galileo now provides seafarer training and certification for the cruise ship, merchant shipping, offshore oil & gas and superyacht industries.
