  • Any one else still waiting to join a ship for phase 2?

    Its been a month and a half for me so far and I know another fellow cadet with the same company is still also waiting. Just wondering if there are any other phase 2 cadets out there waiting to get started!?

    I had to wait three days for my Phase 2...

    You'll get there eventually. Who's your sponsor?
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

        I know of someone who waited a few months - don't worry, they'll get you your seatime. You have almost 12 months to get it on your second sea phase, and about 8 months on this phase.

          We are a bit different this time actually CD. Because our class was small they are merging us with the cadets who start this September in September 2012, which means this phase is the 12 month phase and our second sea phase is the shorter one, effectively swapping sea phases around.

            Ah ok, still the same amount of time overall though?

                They're your training agency, not your sponsor. Who is your sponsor?

                    Lots, I used to work with the head of their SHEQ department. Good guy to work for and an excellent teacher. In my own opinion, Wilhelmsen is an excellent company to be sponsored by. Try to get a copy of their SMS, it ain't half bad.

                    I'm quite surprised it's taking this long to get you a ship, i'd have imagined they'd have got you one fairly quickly. I think they tend to put the cadet's on the Ro/Ro's?

                      Thanks for the advice GuinnessMan! I'll keep a look out for the SMS. I'm not too sure if its just ro/ro's or the PCTC's as well at the moment. I phoned Clyde the other week and they said quite a few cadets with Wilhelmsen are still waiting, my mate is with the same sponsor and he is yet to hear anything so as of yet I am not too worried, just bored! I was hoping for the new Tonsberg, it looks immense!

                        They keep it in an Electronic Format on their computers. I think they call it something else though (can't remember off hand).

                          The people I know with Wilhelmsen have all gone on PCCs, as I say though, not heard anything bad.

                          We have the same with my company's SMS. Don't know why they can't just call it the SMS! With us it's Fleet Regulations.

                            i am still waiting, i was told on the 9th August that i would be joining my ship on the 16th September, bad enough for a long wait, but okay. At least i had a date.

                            i was then told that i would be joining the same ship 12 days earlier, on the 4th September. HAPPY DAYS!

                            So the 31st of September came, and i had no flight details, so I rang Clyde marine to find out that my berths had been cancelled and there were continently going to ring me just before I had called them. The reason for cancellation is that you "cant have 3 engineer cadets on the same ship", well it has been planned for a month and the other two engineer cadets are from my college and my class mates. So they knew about that from the 7th of September when the other two cadets left!

                            tbh i think that they are just making up excuses, and I now have no idea when or where I am going.

                            needless to say, i am gutted and pissed off!

                            It's not my place to run the boat
                            the fog horn I can't blow.

                            It's not my place to say just where
                            the boat's allowed to go

                            It's not my right to dock the boat
                            or even clang the bell

                            But let the damn thing
                            start to sink AND SEE WHO CATCHES HELL!

                              If you have met and know a representative of your sponsor, then I recommend speaking to them. Thats what I did. I would call them every two or three days when I was a cadet as it took them three months to find me a berth. In all fairness to my sponsor I was extra baggage they didn't expect when they entered into the management agreement with my sponsor.....
