International Maritime Academy in Phuket Thailand

We are young at heart and enjoy making the learning experience fun, realistic and practical. Galileo’s team of instructors are dedicated professionals in their respective fields of maritime training. Classroom time is kept to a minimum so there is plenty of time spent in or on the water, at sea in our own training vessels, tenders, life-boats and rescue ribs including training in the school of engineering and our advanced firefighting facilities. Our instructors are internationally certified and have a world of experience to pass on to you.

MCA Accredited


Galileo provides a wide range of safety, security and first aid courses to meet the needs of superyachts and cruise line, merchant line and oil/gas rig owners, managers and operators. These courses meet and exceed the international standards established by IMO, MNTB, MCA, and ISPS.

Galileo also provides entry-level and advanced skills and service training for the superyacht crew. Superyacht crew courses include exterior deck crew, interior steward and stewardess, combined skills for deckhand/steward or stewardess, and culinary courses for yacht chef and experienced chefs who transition from a land career to an onboard career.

In addition to established courses, Galileo works with client companies to develop training programs that meet their own specific training needs and policies, providing consultancy services and also undertaking on-board security and safety audits with reports and recommendations.

Career Options


It is a fundamental goal at Galileo to assist all our graduates who are starting or developing their careers in the maritime industry with career options and introductions to employer organisations and suitable vessels where they will be able to flourish and enjoy the success they deserve as fully qualified and certified seafarers.

Galileo works with some of the most professional recruitment agencies to ensure graduates a fast and efficient entry into the most rewarding jobs in the industry.

Our client companies and client captains are always eager to interview Galileo graduates because they respect the standards of training Galileo achieves and the MCA certification that owners and their insurers require.
