A Message from the Deputy Maritime Administrator
Welcome to the Commonwealth of Dominica Maritime Administration. It is a great privilege for me to offer ship owners, operators, and mariners an opportunity to join an international shipping registry that prides itself on serving the shipping community with the best of support possible. Our service to our customers is second to none! We have constantly been told by new customers that they wish they would have flagged their vessels with the Commonwealth of Dominica years ago.
Our dedicated staff and global offices understand the necessity of a customer service focused Maritime Administration. Customer service is our number one priority. We don't expect any of our customers to have to wait for answers for days or weeks - we answer all emails within a 24 hour period. We are on call 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Our website is a useful tool for our customers - www.dominica-registry.com.
Our mariner and seafarer training and certification program is exceptional by worldwide standards. We have a global training network through our parent company, Northeast Maritime Institute, which has affiliate schools in the Commonwealth of Dominica, Republic of Georgia, Thailand, India, Bangladesh, and many more to come. Each facility falls under the management of NMI's head school in the U.S., which is approved by the Massachusetts Department of Education, and the United States Coast Guard. NMI is also ISO 9001/2008 compliant.
Shipowners can have peace of mind when hiring mariners who hold original Commonwealth of Dominica Certificates of Competence. Our mariner certification program is listed on the International Maritime Organization's “White List” of Nations as a fully compliant program under the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certifications and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) for issuance of original and endorsed Certificates of Competence.I hope that you will consider our Maritime Registry for the flagging of your vessels. I'm positive that you will be happy, the customer service will amaze you and our support will ensure that your profits grow!
