I cannot find any direct links between Lloyd's Maritime Academy and Lloyd's Register.
The course in question is offered by Lloyd's Maritime Academy in conjunction with Middlesex University. From the Lloyd's Maritime Academy website:
Celebrating over 30 years of providing maritime training programmes to the industry, Lloyd’s Maritime Academy is firmly established as the leading international brand for professional development. As a member of the Informa Group headquartered in London, we deliver learning and development opportunities to several thousand international participants every year.
Note that they are part of the "Informa Group" who's website includes:
Informa was formed in December 1998 by the merger of IBC Group plc and LLP (Lloyd’s of London Press). Since then, the continual growth and vision of the company has been built around the supply of high quality, proprietary business-to-business knowledge through some of the longest-standing brands in the world of publishing, conferences, exhibitions and training.
Although we are a relatively young company, our bloodline dates back to 1734 when the first issue of the maritime publication Lloyd’s List was first pinned to the wall of Edward Lloyd’s City of London coffee shop. Today Lloyd’s List is still published daily and, along with other products and services, provides information, analysis and knowledge for business decision makers in the global shipping community.
The Lloyd's Register website has a list of associated entities. I don't see Lloyd's Maritime Academy listed, nor any mention of Informa Group.
It appears that Lloyd's Maritime Academy use the Lloyd's name from an association with the publishers of Lloyd's list, not Lloyd's Register.
In some technical fields, you can pursue the MS and "bring the BS along with you" so you take a set of specific courses designed so that you get only the exact courses and prerequisites you need to get the MS. That includes some undergraduate work. This saves time and money and you don't take the "extraneous" courses that would be needed to produce a "well-rounded" BS.
Moreover, those 'surveyors' voluntary use names of LR, IMO, MCA, etc. to promote their business. Look at this - the guy just put all possible logos on his website! Do they teach business ethics in that 'Academy'?
