The School

Thank you for your interest in MPT's school and services. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to you. We are located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, five minutes from Port Everglades, the International Airport, & our sunny beaches. MPT is the most complete full service private maritime school in the country and has been training mariners since 1983!

Our Fort Lauderdale based campuses host over 45,000 square feet of classrooms, deck and engineering training labs, the Ship's Store, and student service facilities.

In addition to the MPT Main Campus our training programs also take place at the MPT SMARTTM Simulation Center, Marine Tech Shipboard Firefighting Site, the Sea Survival Training Facility, and the MPT Fleet of Training vessels!

Over the years, we have had the privilege of training thousands of commercial mariners, yachting professionals and enthusiasts. This has enabled us to develop programs that are success oriented, with unbeatable pass rates, as well as cost and time efficient. This level of success has resulted from having a staff of dedicated, licensed professionals who care about our students, and are willing to work as hard as it takes to ensure each students success.

MPT offers all levels of certification, license and document study programs, many of these offer in-school testing and are USCG Approved and recognized by many foreign administrations. Our training programs are designed to meet and exceed IMO standards and are STCW Compliant.

There are many schools that offer very limited instruction at high costs to you. At MPT, we know that students learn best by hearing, seeing, and doing! We individualize our student's needs, and never forget that our success depends on your success. This creates confident, successful students, and satisfied customers. I believe that is why our school has grown faster than any other maritime training school in the country.

Our client list includes commercial shipping companies, marine corporations, the military, vessel management firms, the world's best super yachts and thousands of individuals whose word of mouth recommendations are responsible for our success.

We invite you to come and tour our school, meet our instructors, talk to our students, and see what we have to offer. Once you have seen us, you won't go anywhere else!
