About US

We are dedicated to providing mariners with the knowledge they need to comply with MARPOL and U.S. EPA VGP regulations. We offer consulting, instructor-led, computer-based and online training. We know what is required and have created a robust, interactive curriculum that is both comprehensive and holds learners' interest

Ship at sea


Following increased regulatory vigilance of maritime pollution we began providing crew training before and following US Department of Justice violation settlements. The training was instructor-led and expensive. Instructor-led training can only train an existing crew. Months later, when crew members rotate, you must repeat the training. Our clients liked the idea of paying less one time for computer-based training that could be offered repeatedly. Based upon this experience we developed Meeting MARPOL Standards as a separate computer-based product.
