    hey all, how are you all doing.. just saying and hope that some how we can all help one another in some way even by a small discussion or websites which we can email to get an opportunity onboard a ship as a cadet as well as turning a officer.. the industry is very saturated and quite hard to get in if you dont have a connection or linkages that allow you to meet important people. s what say you

          Think he's suggesting you all trade real names so you can use each other to get jobs... That or it's a sting operation to find out if someone's been posting nasty things about their company!

                Now now children, be nice to the new boy!

                Welcome officerhamilton, I think maybe you have gotten off on the wrong foot, we generally encourage our members to remain anonymous so that people can be honest about their experiences at sea and college. I'm guessing you're not a uk cadet and so maybe unfamiliar with our training system? If you want a professional networking site I'd suggest LinkedIn, here we do indeed discuss all thing maritime, including the difficulty of finding jobs, and if people decide to privately share information by private message then that's entirely up to them. However, posting what appears to be a request for help getting a job without telling us anything about yourself first probably isn't the best way to go about it. So, where are you at with your training? Where are you from? What ships have you sailed on?

                        How does the Jamaican cadetship work then? How many more months at sea do you have to do until you qualify?

                          Well its three year program if you pass through everything successfully. Phase I academic studies doing all subjects theoretical knowledge ( physical science, math communication skills, seamanship, stability, coastal navigation, celestial navigation, collision regulations, electronic navigation, cargo handling & stowage), Phase II year is sea time for 6 months and then your Phase III year is Theoretical studies again ( all subjects mention in addition to gyro & magnetic compass, maritime legislation,ship manoeuvring, wicket-keeping) and completing those successfully then you go to sea for remaining 6 months before sitting orals for CoC..

                            Sounds quite similar to the UK system actually, apart from the difficulties obtaining sea time obviously. Do you need a sponsor to start the course or can you do the academic part without a sponsor and then try and find someone to give you the sea time?

                              Yes you can do the course without having a sponsorship and you can try to find someone or a company on your own... the major problem is just the sea-time and getting ships, there are not enough here
