Swift Academy & Training

Your new career starts here. Swift Academy was developed to meet the needs of production and quality assurance standards to accommodate Swiftships’ growing market.

With a constant need for skilled craftsmen, Swiftships has taken the initiative to create opportunities for workers while expanding its production team.

Upon entering the course, students receive a salary based on their skill level. After successfully completing the academy and attaining U.S. Coast Guard certification, students have the opportunity to join the Swiftships team as leaders in production of some of the world’s finest ships.

Opportunities exist for:
