Academy 300

Welcome to the Petrospot AcademyEvents brochure 2019

The Petrospot Academy offers a wide range of high quality, professional training courses on bunkering, shipping and marine surveying.

Since 2003, we have trained in excess of 3,000 students from almost 70 countries in 18 different cities around the world. Our courses are taught by some of the most experienced and knowledgeable experts in the maritime sector who – uniquely – are willing and able to offer informed advice to former students throughout their subsequent careers.

With core training approved by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and endorsed by the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA), the courses can also be taught in-house and adapted to suit particular leaning requirements. Now, the Petrospot Academy offers you more. Companies enrolling students on any course – including in-house courses – will earn a set number of Petrospot Academy points which may be redeemed against any future Petrospot Academy training.

We are adding new courses and new locations every year.
