WHO WE ARE
A COMMUNITY OF MARITIME PROFESSIONALS
The NSAP® Community is comprised of global training providers, maritime professionals and vessel operators that seek to enhance the skill sets of mariners worldwide.
We achieve this through the use of International Training Centers (ITCs) to conduct objective risk-based measurements to assess mariners’ core deck officer watch standing skills as defined by international standards and industry best practices.
Our NSAP® Community industry stakeholders leverage the objective data from the assessment of each individual mariner in order to measure risk, and to make informed decisions about training and skill improvements.
