Industry Support and Mentorship

During your time at sea and college, it is vital that you are able to gain all the support and guidance you need, to help you meet the standards of being a seafarer. It can be difficult and challenging with the levels of continuous learning. Vessels are continually changing and so is the technology with them. Standards and regulations are always being updated and expectations can be high.

We want to provide a place where all levels of support, mentorship, guidance and advice can be found and provide the relevant industry organisations that can help you.
