Dar-es-Salaam Maritime Institute (DMI) provides the best education for its students and prepares them for their international careers by closely following the global changes. The Institute is recognized as the Center of Excellence for Maritime Education and Training in East Africa Community (EAC), Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.

With generous support from the Tanzanian government and various donors, the DMI has grown from offering few Certificates of Competency (CoC) programmes to now offering numerous CoC programmes and National Technical Award (NTA) programmes. More specifically, these programmes emanate from Marine Engineering, Naval Architecture and Off-shore Engineering; Maritime Transport; Shipping and Logistics Management, Purchasing, Logistics and Supply Chain Management and Offshore Safety, Oil and Gas.

Our programmes are accredited by either the local maritime administration (SUMATRA) under the auspices of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) or the National Accreditation Council for Technical Education (NACTE). The Institute is also ISO 9001:2015 certified by an international accredited registrar and classification society called Det Norske Veritas Germanischer Lloyd (DNV.GL) to provide maritime education and certification.
In addition, our Institute offers professional programmes in collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT-UK) and Association of Business Managers and Administrators (ABMA-UK).

Graduates from our programmes can work in many areas such as Shipping Companies, Maritime Training Institutions, Sea Ports, Maritime Administrations, Shipping Agencies, Salvage Companies, Marine Survey Companies, Shipyards, Transport Insurance Companies, Industrial Production Companies, Power Generating Companies, Mining Companies, Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Companies, Logistics Companies and Transport Companies.

As we set our journey to become a world-class Maritime Institute by adding new qualified and experienced staff, we strive and guarantee to offer training, research and consultancy under the best possible conditions.

On behalf of DMI staff members, I would like to invite you to pursue your career dreams at Dar-es-Salaam Maritime Institute.
