NMIT is a leading provider of maritime and fisheries training

Located in Nelson, the seafood capital of New Zealand, the Nelson Maritime School is part of NMIT. Since opening in 1976, the School has grown to become a leading provider of maritime and fisheries training.

Our staff are experienced seafarers with many years of combined experience between them. We offer a wide range of statutory and non-statutory courses for the fishing, marine tourism and marine transport industries, as well as customised training packages and consultancy services designed to suit the needs of national and international clients.

The seafood and maritime industry is a core industry for the Nelson-Marlborough region. Nelson-based companies control the largest share of New Zealand fishing quota and the region has New Zealand’s largest fishing fleet and significant tourist and merchant shipping operations. Port Nelson is a port of call for the merchant fleet and leisure yachts. A range of maritime support services are located close to Port Nelson.
