When and where you need them.

Odyssey is a peripatetic centre and can deliver corporate courses onboard ship or at any suitable venue to meet your needs. On the other hand, our open access courses are run at a convenient UK venue at regular intervals and are open to individuals irrespective of whether they are self funded or sponsored by their employer.


Safety First

At Odyssey, we stick to what we know best. We focus on training that will not only help you meet your mandatory requirements but will also improve your safety culture onboard.

  • Crisis Management & Human Behaviour

  • Crowd Management & Safety Communications

  • Shipboard Safety Officer

  • Shipboard Risk and Safety Management for HoDs & Safety Representatives

  • Personal Safety & Social Responsibility

  • Safety Awareness & Practical Risk Assessment

  • ISM Compliance & SMS Requirements for all officers

  • Safety Leadership & Safety Ambassador


Flexibility, reliability & cost effectiveness

For small groups and individuals

Not only do we run regular open courses at our preferred venue in Portsmouth UK, but we also try our very best to run every course - even if bookings are low, so that you know you can depend on us.

For larger groups

Corporate courses allow you to take advantage of our trainer day rate, making training onboard or at your own venue very cost effective as you maximise the number of delegates trained and minimise travel and other indirect delegate costs. For a course with 8 delegates it is usually better than a 'buy one get one free' deal.
