  • DSTO Training / Regulation. Opinions needed please!

    Hello

    Calling all Officers,both Deck and Engineering, Chief Engineers and Masters!

    I am a recently qualified Deck Officer, currently carrying out a dissertation on the role of the Designated Shipboard Training Officer (DSTO).

    Please could you spare 2 minutes to fill out a completely anonymous, online questionnaire. (It is very quick, mainly yes/no questions), the results of which should help improve the training of UK deck cadets.

    This link explains my project on more detail. I would REALLY appreciate your input. Share to as many people as you can, I'm hoping the results will benefit everyone involved!

    Many thanks,

    Ewan Thomson

    Survey can be found at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Jdv...ecOWw/viewform

        Hi

        I have changed it to a plain background.

        Let me know if you're still having problems accessing it.

        Many thanks,

            I don't know if i'd take on the job of DSTO just yet, but I'd enjoy having a cadet to teach the ways of the world etc I just think the mate and 2nd are in a good position because they are dishing out the jobs for the relevant department for that day, so they know when the good stuff's happening.

              but a 4th or 3rd is also good to do the teaching, the DSTO admin and signing can be higher ups

                I think it would be great to have a cadet show up one day in a uniform that didn't look as if he'd been rolling about the gutter fighting tramps....

                Anywho, I do think that there should be a slightly clearer "help pack" for the DSTO's, but to be honest, they should all know the score by now as nearly all the cadets from around the world show up with a work book of some description...
                I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

                All posts here represent my own opinion and not that of my employer.

                  I agree, I think junior officers should be teaching the cadets and taking a more "hands on" approach to the training, while the DSTO plans the work

                    Showing up with a workbook of some description is one thing, but knowing what needs to be signed, by who and the whys and when of what should be signed is another.

                      Any more takers!? I'm presenting my study at a Marine Conference in Plymouth so the more data I can collect the better. (Does anybody know of any other forums, especially foreign ones as I am short on data from other nationalities?)

                      Many thanks!
