Training Standards and Frameworks

The training standards and frameworks provide a range of entry routes for those wishing to become professional seafarers. As well as achieving statutory Certificates of Competency for basic safety training, those on rating apprenticeships will gain their watch rating and able seafarer certification along with a Maritime Studies qualification. Those on officer education and training programmes will gain their Officer of the Watch (OOW), Engineering Officer of the Watch (EOOW) or Electro-Technical certification along with a degree, HNC and/or HND.

All programmes consist of alternating periods at college/university and sea.
