Survival Centre

The Survival Centre, superbly positioned at Granger Bay, next to the V&A Waterfront and Table Bay Harbour, is just 4 km from the heart of Cape Town. The enclosed harbour area and extensive training facilities have provided an ideal centre for maritime training over the past 40 years.

The Survival Centre is a full member of the International Association for Safety and Survival Training (IASST). All maritime safety courses are accredited by the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) via the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). The Survival Centre's Quality Management System is Certified by the SABS according to the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. All courses are based on international requirements adapted to local operational conditions where applicable.

As part of our Community Outreach Initiatives, we provide all relevant Training to NSRI Volunteers and especially the Air/ Sea Rescue Team which incorporates the SAAF. We also provide training to all relevant rescue services such as the AMS, and SAPS. We pride ourselves in providing training to all Maritime Rescue Services on an ongoing basis.

What CPUT Short Course students say...

I met beautiful people, learn about other cultures. Learning English at CPUT was such a great experience that I will never ever forget. Those who want to learn English in Cape while having fun, CPUT is here for you. I am sure you will not regret it at all.

I chose the short course at CPUT, because I am a mom of a two year old. Doing a correspondance course just wouldn’t work for me. CPUT offers evening classes, which enabled me to attend classes for 6 months. I absolutely enjoyed attending the classes, I also learnt a lot and made friends within the similar fields and with similar interest. Thank you CPUT and the SCM team.
