Cadet Schemes and Crew Promotion
Over the past decades we constantly managed to improve our cadet and training schemes. Having started with this, directly from the beginning, we have the third generation of crew members on board of our vessels.
We strongly believe that investing in the future generation is a large part of success to a stable and well trained crew rotation on board of our vessels. This includes a long screening process and an active role in development of the crew members assisting them to achieve their long-term goal through a steady promotion scheme.
Gladly we would build up your own pool of seafarers, with experienced crew members and a long-term perspective for future crew achievements.
