Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy

Competence and learning are key to success in any business. The Wärtsilä Land and Sea Academy (WLSA) provides high-quality training services for the marine and energy markets, ensuring that your personnel have a strong knowledge of how to manage your assets. Our global training solutions cover all aspects of managing and operating your installation, including maintenance, safety, availability, reliability and performance. The courses and programmes are delivered in the way that works best for your organisation – whether that’s on board, on site, in training centre or online.

Training and competence management have been a vital part of our operations for decades. We support you in assessing, developing and managing your staff’s competences to help you achieve your goals. With products becoming more sophisticated and competent personnel harder to find, training is playing an increasingly important role for operators in both the marine and energy industries.
As our ships must stay operational 24/7, it is extremely important that the crews can master the system. After the training we have been able to operate the system by ourselves. I would recommend this type of training session for other customers with similar needs.
Kari Pihlajaniemi, Director and Head of Saint Nazaire Innovation & Technology Center, Royal Caribbean Cruises
