I am currently looking for a career change looking at jobs in the maritime industry working on VSAT systems installing/Servicing. 

Currently I'm working as a Satellite TV Engineer installing and Servicing satellite systems which i have been doing for just over 5 years. 

Previous to that i served 4 years in the Royal Navy maintaining the internal and external communications equipment onboard ship. 

With no experience working on maritime VSAT systems what path should i be looking at taking to get into this industry and what courses can some recommend for me to do?

I would lean on your RN experience more than the satellite TV and if you can afford it go on an IET or GVF course. Details are at the end of our tutorials or search for IET satellite communications short course or Global VSAT Forum training courses.

By seeing your  capability, I can say you can easily change your stream. But in that instance, I can give you an advice that if you are having more than 5 6 years of experience in a particular work field, then you must continue with this only. It will be more beneficial.
