Maritime Skills Academy joins forces with Ventus Workboats

UK crew-training provider Maritime Skills Academy (MSA) has been announced as the preferred training partner for Ventus Workboats.

Directors from the two companies met at Seawork 2018 in Southampton and proposed the new collaboration shortly afterwards, citing a “shared passion for high standards” as the driving force behind the partnership.

Mark Jaenicke, performance and training director at MSA, commented, “Working with Matt and the team at Ventus, we can really get the word out locally and to industry partners that an organisation like the Maritime Skills Academy is here, ideally located on the Kent coast, supporting the maritime training needs of the south-east region and its booming offshore wind operations.”

Ventus Workboats was established in 2014 and offers a broad range of vessel, crew and project management services. It is ISO 9001 certified and a member of the National Workboat Association, and can also provide IMCA’s Common Marine Inspection Document (CMID) and Marine Inspections of Small Workboats (MISW) audits, viewed by many as the industry standard for safety audits of working vessels.

Matthew Lane, owner director of Ventus, noted, “It’s great for Ventus to be aligned with one of the most professional training organisations that I have come across. Add to that the fact that here we have two Kent-based businesses supporting each other with local presence and awareness.

“Together we can keep training courses relevant by feeding in real-life scenarios, methods and techniques on an on-going basis. It’s a formula that works for all involved.”
