On average, the Maritime Training Program offers training to 150 crew members and staff each year. This innovative training program ensures that deck crew are fully qualified to international maritime standards and fully licensed.

Through this training, we build capacity within this essential group of volunteers and help train them for a future in the maritime industry.

Recently, seven deckhands became Deck Ratings and four Deck Ratings became certified Able Seafarers on the Africa Mercy. Their accomplishments were honoured in a ceremony onboard.
