Mariner Advocacy Program (MAP)
The courses we offer are inexpensive and affordable. See pricing on course pages.
MAP is service provided by Mid-Atlantic to assist Mariners in obtaining their Merchant Marine Credentials. Please call to make an appointment with our MAP Coordinator. In many instances, we offer the option of a Third Party release signed by the Mariner which allows us to follow up on any problems that may arise from either the Regional Exam Center or the National Maritime Center.
** If there are administrative problems with your initial application, we can assist with fixing the problem.
*** This is limited to administrative purposes only. We cannot guarantee acceptance and/or issuance of an Merchant Marine Credential due to Medical OR Civil reasons.

ABOUT OUR ORIGINS
In 2007 Mid Atlantic Maritime Academy (MAMA) bought the assets of Tidewater School of Navigation and began operations in June 1, of 2007. Capt. Jim Miller was instrumental in the start-up of the MAMA enterprise at that time, along with others. In October of 2008, The Maritime University, (TMU) was formed as the Engineering branch of MAMA. January 2011, both MAMA and TMU became MAMA/TMU LLC as a single entity known to all as Mid Atlantic Maritime Academy or MAMA.
