If you have a sense of adventure, this could be the career for you.
This program prepares you to successfully complete Transport Canada's Bridge Watch Rating Certificate, a pre-requisite for entry into work on marine vessels.
You're introduced to all aspects of the mariner's trade through a combination of classroom and hands-on training in shops, simulators and at sea. You learn deck duties (seamanship, mooring, anchoring, cargo work), bridge team duties (steering, lookout, aids to navigation) and emergency duties.
Where feasible, tours/field trips will be arranged to provide additional context for lectures related to ship-board equipment.
