Seattle Central College opens new Seattle Maritime Academy building

With an increasing number of veteran maritime professionals entering retirement, the need has never been greater for competent and skilled mariners. To meet this demand, Seattle Central College is expanding its training facilities with the construction of a new building at the Seattle Maritime Academy.

Students, professionals and community members can take advantage of the academy’s new, modern facility and fleet of commercial vessels.

  • Gain simulation experience to build skills in vessel handling, navigation, radar, Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), engineering and leadership.
  • Practice in our labs working with marine engines (both diesel and electrical), hydraulics and refrigeration systems.
  • Train in the only program of its kind serving Washington and Alaska that is fully accredited by the U.S. Coast Guard.
  • Take continuing education classes for recreational boaters in small diesel engines, electricity, basic navigation, knot-tying, small boat handling and more.
  • Rent the conference room and other spaces for training seminars, meetings and other events.
