Maritime State Pilots Training Programs

MITAGS and PMI are the leading providers of State Pilot Training in the United States, and major suppliers for international pilot groups.  Both of our maritime schools offer both standard and customized state pilots training programs.  Many pilots associations also look to MITAGS-PMI for complex simulation projects related to channel design, berthing arrangements, assist tug execution, and operational research.  An average of $1 million dollars yearly is invested to provide the very latest in maritime simulation technology.
