Welcome to ACMS


ACMS (The Association of Certified Marine Surveyors) is an organization

dedicated to furthering and enhancing the marine surveying trade

through communication, cooperation between individuals, and the offering

 of the latest technical education and support.


ACMS was founded in the 90’s, acquired a group of topnotch

marine surveyors, and was then chartered. Our mission is to provide

 the tools required to grant credentials to marine surveyors who have

proven their knowledge and expertise of the marine surveyor trade.

We offer Marine Surveyors who are certified or accredited a viable

organization with reasonable annual dues. We offer Marine Surveyors

who are not yet certified an opportunity to advance through our

requirements procedure to certification.


Our members keep up to date with new technology, rule changes,

and changes in the trade via our weekly e-mail communications to

 each member, and by participating in the “on line” study modules

that are always available.


Our diverse group is comprised of men and women with expertise

in the following areas:


Yachts and small craft, commercial vessels, cargo and shipping, tow boat

and barge inspectors, draft surveyors, marine architects, imported food

inspectors, cargo and shipping container surveyor, claims and

damage investigation, and expert witnesses.
