Advanced Maritime Training

SAMSA Accredited Training, SAMSA Approved Syllabus Textbook Suppliers


The Cape Town Maritime College has been established by Lambert Marine as a SAMSA accredited STCW educational training centre offering STCW accredited programs for the maritime industry in South Africa. The college offers qualifications at both the Operations and Management levels – the only private college in South Africa to do so.

The business and website ( is run and managed by the former Head of the Marine Engineering program at a South African University of Technology (a World Maritime University PhD graduate) in order to (a) provide SAMSA accredited courses and syllabus textbooks to Marine Engineering students who are busy furthering their maritime qualifications, and (b) produce material for those interested in the field of Marine Engineering.

The literature available from this website has been specifically written from the outset to comply with the SAMSA code content in South Africa, and to provide a cost-effective alternative to the more expensive internationally sourced textbooks available. All of the literature that is available on this site has been written, sourced and compiled to meet the latest Manila 2010 amendments, to ensure the quality of South African maritime education remains at the forefront – in line with international standards.

This website also aims to provide for a central source of information that may be of interest to Marine Engineers.
