Domestic Maritime

The Maritime industry offers rewarding domestic and international careers. A qualification from the New Zealand Maritime School can provide you with a career full of opportunities.

It can take you around the globe with a well-paid career with a foreign-going qualification or you can choose to stay closer to home with one of our domestic tickets.

All seagoing ships, be they cruise liners, freighters or technical and research vessels, need physically fit, independent crew who work well as a team.

Our domestic maritime programmes have multiple start dates throughout the year, so if you love the ocean and are good at technical subjects, launch your training at the best facility New Zealand has  to offer.
