Covid 19 Renovations Complete


We are open. After 5 days of noise, dust and disruption we have completed the main phase our emergency response renovations to our shore-based training facility in the heart of the magnificent Ocean Village in Gibraltar. The massive extension to the main training room ensures that your training essential maritime courses are still available during this pandemic so we can all keep working at sea safely. We managed to squeeze the works in  between courses so we did not have to cancel any dates. We never stop training, running all year round. 


The doubling in size of the main training room to over 80Sqm  provides you with much more personal space, natural light and, due to the larger classroom, we've also installed a much larger 2m wide electronic white board, so even if you’re sat right at the back you can still see the presentation clearly. We are continuing to upgrade our facilities in response to the new challenges we all face given the current circumstances, the maritime industry as a whole never stops, neither do we.


 Achieve your MCA STCW 2010 Basic Safety Training certificate in a friendly, supportive environment.... and find work.

Quick note from the Principal


Working at sea has its rewards, I love the sense of freedom it gives -yes there are challenges in this industry, as with all others but I believe organising your training should not add to these, so my team and I here at Allabroad Maritime Academy are here to help alleviate stress and confusion regarding maritime training and certification. We can help with the other things too such as providing travel and accommodation options for your course and if you're new to the industry we can also help you find work through our small but high profile network of yacht captains.


From a quick STCW refresher course, to the more comprehensive Superyacht crew or Yachtmaster Offshore package, myself and my team here in Gibraltar will absolutely love help you with your goals. 


Best Wishes



Dave Punch


Principal Allabroad Sailing Academy


What is STCW

The term STCW refers to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers and was adopted in 1978 by conference at the International Maritime Organization and amended in 1995 and again in 2010. In simple terms it is an international maritime training framework aimed to enable a seafarer to work on any flag vessel with standardised certification.
