Marine Science and Technology Certification

Marine Technologist and Marine Scientist Certifications

In 2020, the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) entered into a pilot program to offer the Chartered Marine Technologist (CMarTech), in an effort to provide members with an opportunity to advance their professional profile through credentialing. Beginning in June 2021, all MTS and SUT members will have the opportunity to apply for Marine Technologist Certification through your own professional society. 

Marine Technologist Certification

The Chartered Marine Technologist (CMarTech), Registered Marine Technologist (RMarTech), and Marine Technician (MarTech) are registered by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science, and Technology (IMarEST), which has a Royal Charter from the United Kingdom, to award suitably qualified and experienced applicants Marine Technologist Registration (certification). CMarTech, RMarTech, and MarTech are professionals who harness, exploit, manage, use or apply marine technology in the pursuit of wealth creation and/or the provision of services in the marine sector. They are characterized by their ability to deal with complex issues, both systematically and creatively and can make sound judgments in the absence of complete data to develop solutions to problems and communicate their conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.

Marine Scientist Certification

The Chartered Marine Scientist (CMarSci) and Registered Marine Scientist (RMarSci) are registered by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science, and Technology (IMarEST), which has a Royal Charter from the United Kingdom, to award suitably qualified and experienced applicants Marine Scientist Registration (certification). CMarSci and RMarSci are professional scientists, who harness, exploit, manage, use or apply marine science in the pursuit of knowledge, understanding of the marine environment, wealth creation and/or the provision of services in the marine sector. They demonstrate effective leadership, using their specialist knowledge and broader scientific understanding to develop and improve the application of science and technology by scoping, planning, and managing multifaceted projects. CMarSci and RMarSci reflect the wide variety of sciences and their practice, recognizing high levels of skill and experience, independent of discipline.

MTS and SUT plan to launch the CMarSci and RMarSci certifications in October 2021. Please check back then for more information.
