  • Where to start!?

    Hey everyone! I'm Kristien! (Or Kris)

    just been accepted at Fleetwood with Sea Truck Ferries through SSTG....so... What do I do now?

    Any tips on how to prepare, things to take and things to ensure I do would be great

    Soooo excited about it though haha!

    Congrats! I'm no expert (in the same place as you, can't wait to start), but a few people on here are. Start by taking a look at this http://www.officercadet.com/content....nxiety-sets-in!

    there are some other great articles as well. Just have a general read of the forum, especially the sticky threads. If you haven't got one already, you'll need an ENG1 Medical (sticky thread on that in aspiring cadets section). Some companies want you to wait until they tell yo to get one, others just reimburse you when you show them the receipt. Can't remember exactly what Steve told me but if you have any questions he'll reply. He's really helpful

    Oh and use the search function before you ask a question. It keeps the grumpy ones happy...

      Congratulations and welcome!

      Give my love to Fleetwood, it's not a picture postcard kind of place, but I had a great time there

            Kris,

            I actually think you will be more nervous in the first few days than you are now, and it will probably match the nerves before your interview, but it does wear off pretty quickly and then return each time you do something new, like short courses or each time you join a ship!

            The thing is, you are no different from anyone else!

            Just enjoy yourself until then, unless you are results reliant, in which case why have you not started revising yet? LOL

            ...and yes, I am one of the grumpy ones as that young upstart of a whipper snapper kindly referred to earlier.... Guinessman - I think it is time the Weasel walked the plank!

              In the interest of self-preservation, I should point out that the grumpy ones are also very nice people, who, beneath their tough exterior just want a hug and to be loved. They're also very useful and generally willing to help those who help themselves
