Welcome to the Naval & Maritime Academy
The Naval & Maritime Academy (NMA) is the premier training establishment of Sri Lanka Navy capable of undertaking both officer training and all specialized branch training for naval ratings, located within the picturesque setting of Trincomalee harbour. It provides an environment that is ideally for nautical and maritime studies.
The Naval & Maritime Academy was established as a separate institution on 15th January 1967 and was commissioned on 15th July 1967 with the instructor Commander MGS Perera as its first commandant. This created a new era of training in the Navy, by taking on the training of officers, who had until this time been trained at the Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, in the United Kingdom.
In 2001 NMA received university status and President's Colours in 2003 and the Naval and Maritime Academy has been awarded the prestigious ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System Certification by the Sri Lanka Standard Institution and presently ISO 9001:2008.
