Competenz can provide training plans, support and qualifications – tailored to your businesses specific needs.

How we work with you

We partner with industry associations like the Maritime and Seafood Educators Association and members of your industry to build talented employees. This support includes promoting careers in your industry, ensuring your industry’s qualifications continue to meet needs, supporting industry events like conferences and regularly celebrating your learners’ success.

Most of these qualifications have been designed to meet the requirements of Maritime New Zealand’s seafarer licences. Maritime New Zealand is the Crown entity responsible for protecting New Zealand’s maritime environment and maintaining safety and security on and around the water.

Level 2 maritime qualifications cover entry-level positions. They offer a pathway into higher level qualifications in the maritime industry.
