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 and changes in the trade
by participating in the “on line” study modules that are available each year.
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.
