The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) does not deliver any training at HMS Collingwood. The majority of navigation training and other courses delivered by the Royal Navy at HMS Collingwood, and at other establishments are, however, MCA accredited.

To identify the number of personnel who may have qualifications that are recognised by the Merchant Navy would require individual records to be scrutinised and could be provided only at disproportionate costs.
