About us

STC NEXT is an Offshore Training centre situated on a unique spot in the port of Rotterdam. As an Offshore Training centre we passionately ensure that everyone working at sea can safely return to their homes. We train for the Oil & Gas, Offshore Wind and Marine sectors. We also provide various courses for the industrial sector. Please take a look at our portfolio on the Training pages on this website.

STC NEXT is an associate company with two equal shareholders: STC Group is leading (globally) in the field of maritime education and related knowledge for all the work and activities in the port- and logistics sector.

The Koninklijke Nederlandse Redding Maatschappij STC NEXT (Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institution) is a charity foundation that saves lives at sea in (Dutch) waters and was established in 1824 to offer help and support, free of charge, to seamen in distress. STC NEXT employs professionally trained volunteers and uses modern lifeboats for this purpose. Its products, knowledge and services have been developed over many years, in co-operation with world-renowned Dutch technical institutions. In STC NEXT the above knowledge and experience are combined, allowing us to provide high quality emergency response trainings for the marine, offshore and offshore wind sector. While demanding the highest quality from ourselves, at STC NEXT, customer focus and flexibility come first.
