We welcomed over 750 visitors to our careers at sea open day on Friday 24 January, in one of the busiest open days seen at the Academy.
Visitors came from an incredible 43 different counties around England, Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and the Channel Islands, as well as overseas visitors from Slovakia, Finland, France, Italy, Greece and Turkey.
Our open day focuses on demonstrating what a career in the maritime industry has to offer and the training programmes necessary to become qualified as a ship's navigation, engineer or electro-technical officer in the merchant navy and the superyacht industry.
A key highlight to the occasion was the ability for visitors to meet the shipping companies responsible for offering funded officer cadet training and recruitment. The following companies were represented; Anglo-Eastern (UK) Ltd, Bibby Ship Management(WE) Ltd, BP Maritime Services, Carisbrooke Shipping Ltd, Carnival UK, Chiltern Maritime, Clyde Marine Training, Maersk, Princess Cruises, Royal Fleet Auxiliary, Ship Safe Training Group, Viking Recruitment and Wilsonhalligan Large Yacht Recruitment.
In addition to meeting the shipping companies, visitors could participate in a programme of events throughout the day, where they could listen to talks on life as a merchant navy officer, take command of a ship in the bridge simulator, navigate a passage using electronic charts, walk through a virtual engine room on a ship, watch fire fighting demonstrations and survival at sea talks, and observe students under tuition in the engineering workshop.
