On 6th October 2017 we officially opened our new training centre in the Solent. The Solent Marine Safety Academy, the first Marine Safety Academy in the UK, is a joint project between the two specialist marine training companies, Fire-Aid Academy Ltd and MRS Training & Rescue. It was officially opened at our launch party by Mr Steve Clinch, Head of the Marine Accident Investigation Branch.

The aim of the new Academy is to provide a comprehensive package of safety training to the marine and associated industries, in a unique environment on the water at Hythe, Southampton. The training ground is designed on a floating pontoon with a student accommodation block, a firefighting area on the deck of the pontoon, and specialist enclosed space training inside the hull. It has been set up to be as real to life on ship as possible, giving students a sense of what life will be like at sea.

The joining together of the two foremost fire and enclosed space training companies enables the provision of training and standby cover on board ships around the world.
