The Seattle Maritime Academy is happy to have academic alliances with maritime companies and organizations. From helping you connect to new talent to providing training to existing employees, we are committed to supporting the maritime industry. Please contact us to discuss potential partnership opportunities.
Hire Maritime Students & Alumni
Our students complete the program with the skills and expertise needed for a rewarding career at sea, and our simulator labs and vessels provide hands-on experience to excel in the maritime industry. Please contact our office if you are interested in hiring our students or partnering with us on our at-sea internships.
Seattle Maritime Academy offers high-quality, customized professional development training for private sector companies, government agencies, military units and unions. Our new facility, which features a state-of-the-art simulation suite, will help experienced mariners upgrade or renew their licensing, prepare for U.S. Coast Guard assessments and learn new skills needed to advance their careers.

Boat Donation Program
Through the Boat Donation Program, you are providing Seattle Maritime Academy facilities to give students hands-on training or resources to support student scholarships and program development. Once inspected by our staff, we may use donated boats in the following ways:
Immediate resale with the proceeds supporting Seattle Maritime School programs
Resale after improvements and/or renovations have been made
Educational use in the Seattle Maritime Programs
Donation offers of recreational boats and commercial vessels will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and we will consider the following questions:
Is it in good working order?
What is the liability or risk associated with this boat or vessel that Seattle Central College and Seattle Maritime Academy will potentially incur?
What is the potential return on our investment in comparison to the level of risk should we choose to accept the donation?
Could it be used in our continuing education, certificate or professional development programs?
If you are interested in boat donation, please contact the Seattle Maritime Academy.
