I am really enjoying the course so far. Everything I’m learning is really interesting and I’m looking forward to my first phase at sea. I’m particularly looking forward to getting involved and getting some hands on experience. Lewis Ross-Smith, Merchant Navy Deck Cadet
I’m really enjoying it all. So far, I’ve studied ship operations, the maritime industry and nautical science. The next step will be putting this into practice at sea, which I’m really excited about.
