Based in the beautiful union territory of Puducherry (Formerly known as Pondicherry), in the heart of the town and established in 2010, the Pondicherry Maritime Academy offers a series of Tanker related training courses that cater for different levels of experience: from the first time leisure sailor to the highly experienced seafarer looking to get into the ever demanding Tanker field. We understand that, learning and adapting the Tanker culture / tricks of trade is not easy; as no books or publications teaches you this, basically you need to experience it to understand it.
