Maritime Security Training & Anti Piracy

Maritime Security Training & Anti Piracy consulting for Yacht Captains, Yacht Staff and Personalized Yacht Security Training Courses & Other Maritime Security Staff Training.


This course is intended to provide a broad theoretical foundation of maritime security techniques and anti-piracy awareness while also providing sound tactical training for those that are likely to be providing security services as a secondary function within environments under the threat of piracy or attack. While promoting effective procedures and tactics for a vessel’s defense, this course emphasizes proactive awareness combined with ethical and effective escalation of force procedures as your best defense.

Piracy is nothing new but acts of piracy and attacks on American vessels are undeniably on the rise. There were 1.2 acts of piracy committed per day in the year 2011. Now is not the time to be complacent.

We provide Anti-Piracy and Maritime Security Training designed to ensure your staff will have the skills to maintain security through awareness and proactive action in high-threat environments. All courses are taught by highly experienced staff with a background in multi-national training as well as international maritime security experience.

Each student in our Maritime Security & Anti-Piracy Course will be evaluated and required to demonstrate a capability on each exercise which exceeds the minimum requirements we have established for maritime operational security.
The certificates you will receive will indicate that you have met these standards and will serve as a testament to your capabilities as a protection professional in maritime operations.
