Merchant Navy Training Board
The Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) is the shipping industry's central body for promoting and developing seafarer education, training and skills. The MNTB is a part of the Chamber of Shipping (see below) and is fully funded by it.
At the forefront of educational developments and UK wide careers promotion, the MNTB provides education and training frameworks that develop high quality British seafarers who are respected worldwide for their professionalism and skills. The nautical colleges/universities deliver the programmes in line with MNTB Frameworks.
The MNTB carries out a wide range of promotional activities which include the maintenance and updating of the Careers at Sea website along with attending UCAS Higher Education conventions and careers events around the UK, Careers at Sea Ship Visits, advertising in on-line and print publications and the new Careers at Sea Ambassadors project (see below).
