Gateway to Cruise Line & Ferry Industry

Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime?

Want to get paid to travel the world?

If so, we have the opportunities for you or a friend to kick-start a career on-board a Cruise Ship, the key to an ocean of opportunities and the courses which will help you get there.


SEFtec NMCI Offshore (SNO), in conjunction with Cork Education & Training Board, are delighted to announce that we will be running a FREE  – “Gateway to Cruise Line & Ferry Industry” Course, which is funded by Cork Training Centre.  If you’re looking for something different then a career within the Cruise Line Industry may be just for you.

Positions in demand can vary greatly from hospitality, to beauticians, hairdressers, receptionists, personal trainers, childcare workers, and security / administration personnel to EI Technicians.

A presentation outlining details about this FREE course  will take place at the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) on April 20th at 10am. For further details on this exciting course please email :


Still unsure about whether life on a Cruise Liner is for you? Check out a testimonial from a past delegate below;


“I completed  the Gateway to Cruise Line and Ferry Industry course at the National Maritime College of Ireland. With top class facilities and exceptional, knowledgeable and experienced instructors, this course was a major success”.

“I have learned invaluable skills, gained awareness and knowledge which I will use when working on-board Cruise Liners. Having a past employee of a major Cruise Liner be part of this programme transformed the course and gave a real insight into the Cruise Line Industry. I could clearly imagine exactly what it would be like to work and live on-board”.

“I always had an interest in travelling the world while working; what it would be like to work on-board a cruise liner. Not alone does the course answer my question; it has also given me the training, knowledge and confidence needed to seek out work on-board a Cruise Liner. I would like to thank SNO, CETB and all the instructors for their time and dedication in making this course a major success”.

(Claire O’Halloran, Gateway to Cruise Line & Ferry Industry Delegate)

“Our people are our most valuable asset”

Posted: February 2, 2016

“Our people are our most valuable asset”

Steve Jobs once said that “The only way to do great work is to love what you do”. – that’s why we at NMCI Services take pride in getting leading industry experts to join our team. By handpicking our team we are confident that they love what they do, have the relevant qualifications and experience, and most importantly that they want to be a part of our growing company.


Our Story

Not only do our employees love what they do but they take pride in delivering top class maritime training courses to meet the needs of both our current and prospective clients. Meeting the specific needs of that customer base enables us to gain a deeper understanding of them. Understanding their needs and wants has enabled us to grow and develop, to create specific training courses and to offer bespoke dates.

While understanding our clients and providing a top quality service has been an integral part of our ethos, we have always recognized how safety is paramount. A key motto for all staff at NMCI Services is and always will be “safety first – safety always”.

Since the development of NMCI Services back in 2008, by management of the NMCI, we have expanded. By joining forces with GAC and SEFtec we have developed our range of course offerings and have become world leaders in maritime training.


Why us?

One element of our long term focus is develop a team of highly skilled and experienced instructors who will deliver our specialised maritime training courses at our $100 million dollar state of the art facilities. Not only have we state of the art facilities but we are a center of excellence with great connectivity. Located only 9 miles from Cork Airport and 1 mile from the Port of Cork, NMCI Services is located on a 10 acre site overlooking Cork harbor – a world class facility on Europe’s doorstep.

As we grow, our team is expanding; we want to have the best in industry on board. Not only are we a great company to work for, but we are continuously developing and meeting the needs of our customer base.



Follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn today to kick-start your career with us. Remember, “Our people are our most valuable asset” so let us be your first port of call for a career in the maritime sector.


What our Instructors have to say about us;

“I’ve been working with NMCI Services for a while now and I have to say that the staff are a great bunch of people to work with. I like how I get to interact with so many different people on a daily basis due to the vast amount of short courses we offer here”.


“I like being able to assist people to create a safer environment for them at sea” .


“I really like my position as an instructor within NMCI Services due to the fact that everyday, even though I walk through the same door and enter the same office, it brings me new adventures. I get to meet and be influenced by new people, new traditions and new experiences. The other main reason I love working here is the people and the staff”.
