What are the opportunities for career progression?

Question:
What are the opportunities for career progression?
Answer:

Once initial certification is gained, further training and experience will enable progression to the qualifications needed to become either a ship’s captain, chief engineer or chief electro-technical officer.

It typically takes a further five or six years to achieve these senior qualifications. Promotion will then depend on merit and opportunity, as well as holding higher level qualifications.
