Looking for a career in hydrography? A new opportunity to gain international accreditation in a growing field


IIC Academy has been successfully running the IHO/FIG/ICA accredited S5b Hydrographic Surveyor course and S8b Marine Geospatial Information course for many years from our Australasia offices. We are now expanding our provision of these courses to Europe and the UK.

This industry recognised accreditation will prepare you for a career in hydrographic surveying, a dynamic and active role that is in high demand in a growing industry. The course runs over a 6-month period. The first 21 weeks are modules delivered online with support from experienced tutors. The modules include Environmental Science, Underwater Acoustics, Remote sensing and more. These modules are designed to be flexible, allowing you to study around work. The course culminates with a 7-week practical placement, including a final field assessment where you will apply your knowledge and skills in a real world scenario.

Here is what our past student had to say:

There was a broad range of experience among the students on the course, and I was without doubt the least experienced, despite this, I was able to fairly easily grapple with the content during the theory stage. The practical modules have not only given me invaluable hands-on experience but have provided lifelong memories and cherished friendships. Truly this was a once in a lifetime experience.” Jeremy, 2022 graduate.

S-8 category B Marine Geospatial Information

This course gives students the skills to produce nautical charts to an industry standard. This program is also recognised by the IHO/FIG/ICA international board on standards of competence for hydrographic surveyors and nautical cartographers. Our instructors are experienced professionals from the hydrographic industry and the online nature of this course allows flexibility for you to work around your other commitments.

Places for both courses are still available for September 2023; we are also accepting applicants for our September 2024 start date.
