Elkins Nigeria Founder

A Special dedication to Elkins Nigeria Co-Founder Dr. Hugh Friday Nwaneri. He worked tireless to make Elkins Marine Nigeria what it is today. 

Be the best you can be with Elkins Marine Nigeria.

Elkins Marine first home was in Lagos Apapa and then we moved to Lagos Badagry.  While in Lagos, Elkins decided to expand and in January 2006, EMTI (Nigeria) Ltd was granted 2.2 hectares of land by the Governor of Imo State to build a Maritime Industrial Training Centre, which would be the largest maritime training centre in Africa. This move will allow us to build a second school closer to Port Harcourt and the Delta region. Our intention is to provide infrastructure assistance to the immediate area, training youth and assisting them with locating employment through our contacts in the maritime and offshore industry. We believe the training and influence that we continue to provide at Elkins will have a stabilising and long-lasting effect on reducing discontent which causes debilitating actions against institutions and civilised structure. Further, we desire to provide a positive vision for residents of local communities. When people in impoverished lands believe the world cares, and that care is not just rhetoric, but tangible results (i.e. training, security and jobs) security is enhanced.

With our new base now in Owerri and two new Lagos offices and potentially offices in Port Harcourt and Warri in the near future, Elkins Marine Nigeria plans to be accessible to all our clients providing world-class training for all while bringing job opportunities to the local communities in Nigeria.

Private students can now join our Train Nigeria Programme by quoting Elkins TNP when enquiring.

Elkins Marine Training International Nigeria (EMTIN) is the official and number one training school and consultancy for the government, maritime industry, oil and gas companies and other industries.

We train, consult and provide solutions for the oil and gas industry, offshore, maritime and security companies and many others.

EMTI (Nigeria) Limited was developed at the urging of the United Nations International Maritime Organisation (IMO); EMTI was specifically approached by the IMO for the purpose, because of its international maritime expertise. As a result, a joint venture agreement was signed with a highly respected Nigerian company – Hu-Fy Systems Ltd.

The Training Academy was opened in November 2000. Years on we have trained over 10,000 mariners and security personnel.

Our institute in Owerri (Previously in Lagos) provides IMO STCW complaint training in professional and technical subjects required by the IMO STCW convention, SOLAS, ISM Code and ISPS Code including GMDSS General Operator’s Certificate; Bridge Resource Management; Basic Safety Training (Basic Fire Fighting, Personal Survival Techniques, First Aid & CPR, Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities); Tank Ship Dangerous Liquids; Company and Port Facility Security; plus a full range of ancillary courses required by mariners, offshore and security forces who need to meet the latest international requirements for certification.
