Engineer and METO cadets celebrate the completion of their cadetships

On Friday 9 March, 28 cadets from the September 2015 marine electro-technical and engineer cohorts marked the imminent end of their cadetships with a celebration event on board the Princess Caroline.

Passing out ceremony March 2018

These cadets had a 'mini' passing out ceremony as they complete their training in April, and many of them are already away at sea at the time of the larger passing out ceremony in June.

The cadets were joined by family and friends, as well as training managers from Chiltern Maritime, Sealion Shipping Ltd (on behalf of SSTG) and Carnival UK. Staff from Warsash also attended to wish them well.

Each year, a number of prizes and awards are presented to cadets to mark individual achievements during their training. Normally, these are awarded at the passing out ceremony in June, however, the winner of one award was present at this event. The Radio Officers' Association awards an annual prize to the METO cadet who gains the highest marks in the GMDSS Radio Maintenance Certificate exam, which is an integral part of the marine electrical and electronic engineering foundation degree programme. This year's winner was Adam Surmon-Bohr (BP Maritme Services). He was awarded the prize from Brian Cotton, President of the Radio Officers' Association.

The event marked a major accomplishment on the officer cadets' part in successfully completing their academic and professional programmes, and we wish them every success as they embark upon their professional careers.
