Our support extends to the level our clients require, including day-to-day management supervision, mentoring, and transferring of specialized skills.
We extend our programs, as required, to include specialized courses, which can be conducted in training institutes or at our partners’ facilities.

Many craftsmen began their careers at the Swiftships Academy. The welding academy is a 6-8 week course in which potential aspiring welders are trained in aluminum Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding. 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 naval ships.
Opportunities exist for:
- Individuals who have completed a two year welding course
- Welders who have a few months to a year of aluminum welding experience
