Yachts Surveyor Qualification Institution question


I wonder which institute offers best outcome for Small Yachts Surveyor qualification (such as Diploma or a Certificate) for sailor (relatively new i.e 3years sailing experience with RYA certificates along with different corporate 22yrs experience with science & technology university degree) becoming a Surveyor. My aim is to gain this qualification which I can use to get some income while I sail for extended period of time. I have been doing research on this topic and found that this professsion (usually) does not have any specific educational requirement and is based on personal knowledge and experience over the years.

I found the following institutes offering Dip course, anyone from their experiences know which of the followings offers the best value in terms of distance learning content material quality, support and most importantly traineeship or some kind of experience tagging along with its members to gain experience. (I m in Sydney - Australia)


International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS) Australia

Lloyd’s Maritime Academy - North Kent College issued cert UK

Maritime Training Academy UK

Thanks in advance.
