Onshore Approved Training Providers

To ensure that education and training in the seafood industry is high quality, Seafish is responsible for monitoring and approving training providers.

These approved training providers (ATPs) have been approved by us as meeting high standards of training with respect to materials, trainers, resources, and experience. Only Seafish approved training providers may deliver our onshore training courses.

For information on the variety and typoes of Seafish and other training courses available and for which we are seeking trainers, please view the Seafood Academy prospectus or visit the Seafood Training Academy website.

For more information about Onshore ATPs - or becoming an Onshore ATP - please academy@seafish.co.uk or phone 01472 252 300.
