    Hello

    Hi all,

    I am Shifty the geordie and I am delighted to say that I recently secured a Engine Cadetship with Maersk starting September 2010.

    I am a mature Cadet of 29 yrs with engineering experience of 13 yrs (non marine)

    I will begin the BEng in Marine and Mechanical at Liverpool John Moore in September and can't wait to get stuck in

    I have worked overseas before in the middle east which was oil and gas based engineering

    A few questions on a few different subjucts if I may pick the brains of the masses...

    What is Liverpool John Moores Uni like ?

    In a competative Cadetship as this one is, will a full degree set me apart from guys who qualify with lesser awards...ie: will the degree help me get taken on after the 3 yr training period ?

    Which would be better Tankers or Container Vessels ?....can I influence what type of vessel I get assigned to ?, I'd prefer tanker as I already have Oil & Gas experience

    What kind of pay increments are we looking at ?:

    Chief Engine ?
    2nd Engine ?
    3rd Engine ?
    4th Engine ?

    I relise that it is dependant on employer but it would be great to have a blueprint

    When qualified EOOW how long does it take to get through the relevent tickets all the way up to Chief tickets ?

    WILL NEWCASTLE UNITED STAY UP NEXT SEASON ?????????????? hahah

    Thanks guys

    any info is greatly received
Working...
