    I'm due to start the precadet ship at south Tyneside in September and have got a list of the course breakdown as I have opted to get a head start by starting now. Only thing is I don't have a clue where to find any of this information. Is there any specific websites or textbooks?

    2. Maritime Sector Overview
    3. Vessel Construction and Stability
    4. Basic Vessel Engineering Systems
    5. Control Vessel Operations
    6. Marine Engineering Dynamics
    7. Marine Heat Engines
    8. Mathematics for Seafarers
    9. Statics for Marine Engineers
    10. Strength of Materials
    11. Marine Electrical Fundamentals
    12. Marine Engineering Practice: An Introduction

    I am a little confused, your profile stated you are an aspiring Deck cadet, however your course content looks like it is aimed towards the engineering sector.

    Which one? If deck, I can help, if engine, not so much.

      From what I've gathered the college phase starts right from the bottom and builds up your knowledge, I would like to also get a head start but I really don't think it's possible. I'm working 7 days a week and chairing a charity up until my start date. Will not being able to get a head start hinder progress or will everyone move at the same pace? Hoping someone already at college can shed some light on this...

        Hi there,

        i am an pairing deck cadet. I think the course looks at both sides to help you with your choice and I'm pretty sure you can opt to do deck or engine. Could you please help me with the deck side please?

        Thanks

          How unusual...

          Anyway, books you can have a look at if you really want to get a head start.

          - Bowditch's American Practical Navigator
          - NAV Basics by good old Abdul
          - Bridge procedures guide - ICS
          - Bridge Team Management by Swift

          If you want to get really immersed in the topics, Bowditch is the way to go. If you want a more direct explanation NAV basis is good. Each publication has its uses. These should keep you bust with regards to the Deck side.
