              I'd be careful about booking holidays like that as you can be called to join a ship at any time!
              I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

                I agree with GM.

                Unless you know for a fact you will be home and have told the company your intentions and got the go ahead, I wouldn't bother.

                I'm in a similar situation just now, I want to go away but getting timing etc... is a pain. Sea time is more important than beer time just now!

                    Maybe, maybe not. I've had three days and two months between finishing college and joining a ship (the two months one was an abnormality as my Sponsor had just switched managers who hadn't been told about me and I needed some special courses too).

                      I'm sure there's an answer to this somewhere but can't find it. How long should phase 1 FD at STC last?

                        As an indication I've just finished my first FD engine phase at STC. Start of September 'till March, then two or three weeks of March doing revision and exams.

                            No that doesn't help sorry, I'm sure I read for deck it's something like
                            phase 1 (college) 21 weeks
                            phase 2 (sea) 29 weeks
                            then not sure but can remember seeing a 49 week sea phases at some point

                              Just a bit of input. I'm at STC and the college have my FIRST sea phase to 13 month and my second sea phase to 5 month. So not all the phases will be the same.
