Virtually Safe project (simulation to navigate safely) is centered on what is the fundamental principle of the navigation code: all seafarers shall be properly educated and trained, adequately experienced, skilled and competent to perform their duties in a manner which provides for the safety of life, property and security at sea and the protection of the marine environment. The simulation allows us to educate and train even before getting on board. We have chosen a standard safety procedure: the launch of the lifeboat.

IMSSEA – International Maritime Safety Security and Environment Academy
IMSSEA represents a reference body worldwide for Maritime education and training.
The education and training path for cadets currently lasts for 3 years, alternating classroom, training center and on the job periods on board.
To attend FAIMM, candidates must pass both a written and an oral examination regarding technical and nautical subjects, English and attitude skills.
FAIMM courses provide a complete technical and personal skills training for cadets.
Once completed the educational path, the cadets attend a final exam to get ITS and the 3rd Officer (CoC) qualifications.
Academy has recently signed an agreement with Southampton Solent University, that recognizes our Deck ITS/CoC qualification as a degree level to enter their master degree courses BSc Marine Operations Management and the BSc Maritime Management. We are waiting for a similar recognition for Engine ITS/CoC qualification from Solent and from Rostock universities.
FAIMM courses are totally free for trainees and shipowner companies as well.
FAIMM operates in close cooperation with Shipowners companies, providing tailor-made education and training paths, starting from the selection process to the final exam.
FAIMM is always looking worldwide for new partners to work with.
FAIMM especially focuses on Cruise Companies, where its cadets can excel.
FAIMM partnership motto is:
«We have what Shipowners want, at no costs, with excellence».
