Subsequently, in the year 2000, SEA SCAN moved its sphere of activities to Goa and commissioned a similar institute at the Fire Service Grounds, St. Inez, Panjim, Goa.

The Shipping Industry offers the crew lucrative wages for operating and maintaining the ships. Hence, there is a need to equip the crew with theoretical knowledge and practical skills of the changing technology , as well as to inculcate a high degree of adaptability for working on different types of ships and disciplines to effectively contribute to the shipping establishment.
Expanding its activities further, the Sea Scan Maritime Foundation at Chicalim, Airport Road, Goa has been shifted to Verna, Goa to provide much needed pre-sea training to ratings in General Purpose and Maritime Catering disciplines. sex toys
