I have completed courses at a number of training facilities around Australia this year and found SMIT to not only have great trainer but make you want to be there.

– C.B., Marine Engine Driver Course, 18 October 2018


Fantastic venue and staff.

– D.W., Marine Engine Driver Course, 18 October 2018


Everything explained, easy to follow learning, very helpful, very knowledgeable trainer, good learning environment and great facilities.

– A.M., Marine Engine Driver Course, 13 July 2018


Brilliant course, well detailed and documented. Delivered in a suited environment by knowledgeable lecturers. For an entry level course, it really encompasses a wholistic approach and is highly recommended for any employer or employee that is requiring an up skill or personal development in the marine industry.

– J.C., Coxswain Grade 1, 27 April 2018


A fantastic course and very well run. Highly recommend SMIT.

Sam, the teacher is great and completes teaching in a proper manner. Help is always given when needed. Materials that Sam gave us (print outs) are fantastic and they are vital information for us. SMIT has a great training environment with a lot of room (we had a small class). We did not get the Darwin charts until a bit late which was a shame because it would be good to work with them. I believe SMIT’s Master up to 24m course needs to be a longer course as it felt a bit rushed in some areas. Overall, Sam and the whole class plus facility was great. Training was sufficient and I believe I learnt a lot.

I found SMIT very accommodating and flexible of my needs while undertaking the Certificate III in Maritime Operations (Master up to 24 metres). I found the trainer was excellent – presenting with a great mixture of knowledge and experience. He made this course interesting while maintaining good discipline and standards, always helpful and willing to answer my questions.

– Elizabeth Franklin, Master up to 24m course, 07 June 2017


The course was very good. A lot to take in but the training was full of information about Master up to 24m. Rod was very helpful throughout the course.

– J. Rasing, Master up to 24m course, 16 August 2017


Just done MED2 here at SMIT. I enjoyed the course, instructors and staff were very helpful in helping you get through your studies and understanding of the duties for your tickets. I can’t speak highly enough of the staff here at SMIT. I would recommend if you need to do maritime tickets, come in and say hi to these guys. ūüôā

– Shira Chiarelli, MED2 course, 20 October 2016


I did my Coxswain in August and my MED2 in October and I am looking forward to do my Master under 24 metres in December. Experience training facility, very professional staff in all departments. I will definitely recommend SMIT to my friends.

– Theo Kostov, MED2 course, 20 October 2016


I have just completed my MED2 and about to start my Master5. The teaching here has been great. My understanding of my own work area has improved massively and has done so under no pressure. I would recommend this facility to anyone and I know I will be coming back. Thanks Pete, Janis and Erin.

– Chris Webber, MED2 course, 20 October 2016


I would recommend these guys to anyone looking at furthering their career in the maritime industry. All the staff make you feel at home and are very friendly. I feel I have learned a lot in these classes and will be leaving with having made a great experience.
