Founded in 2011, EMA Marine is a global manning and crewing support agency serving the world‘s leading shipowners and ship managers. As the manning and crewing arm of YCF Manning, their focus is to source qualified Ethiopian Marine Engineers, Electrical Engineers, and Ratings. They are able to ensure the highest-quality crew for their clients because of the strict selection and training regiment undertaken by their sister training organization, the Ethiopian Maritime Training Institute (EMTI). Their Group is the exclusive manning agent and marine officer training organization in Ethiopia and this allows EMA to attract the best possible talent and to train them in-house.

As a country with over 100 million people and exceptional educational standards, Ethiopia is well positioned to meet the manpower needs of the maritime industry. EMA’s vision is to connect leading international shipowners and ship management companies with the exceptional technical knowledge and professionalism of Ethiopian seafarers.
