Director’s Desk

Pondicherry Maritime Academy is a certified ISO 9001-2008 Institution certified by Indian Register Quality Systems (IRQS) Accreditions, strictly enforcing globally recognized training standards for seafarers.

PMA is located in heart of Union Territory Puducherry (formerly known as Pondicherry), one of the liveliest and friendliest Union Territory in India and a great place to study. As a former French colony, it exudes Mediterranean aura with its own unique culture and social life, museums, theatres, resorts, restaurants, shops, bars, clubs, etc that one will never be short of things.

One of the most important challenges of Maritime education in our country today: the growing rural-urban divide- where there is an instant shortfall in quality of competent young Maritime professionals from rural areas. The core reasons include inflexible curriculum, poor access to information and technological advancements and lack of exposure to knowledge forums. PMA located in the heart of Puducherry is a one-of-its-kind institution that has pledged to bridge the difference.
