What do we do?
The Maritime Skills Alliance designs and promotes qualifications and apprenticeships for the UK’s maritime sector. We have developed a suite of interlocking standards and qualifications – MSQs, “Maritime Studies Qualifications” - which enable employees to progress both within their specialism and between sectors.
You can find a complete and regularly updated list of all our Units and Qualifications on the Qualifications page.
Our Secretary is David Tournay, who can be contacted on 07809 395187 and at:Email David Tournay
