On June 2nd a group of about 50 cadets for our Principals Seatrade and Triton reported in Manila to the Aviormarine branch office to start their induction period. During this period cadets will undergo medical testing, attend familiarization classes, finalize computer based training and process papers for departure. All cadets are sheduled to board Seatrade and Triton vessels in the coming three months.
On board the cadets progress will be monitored by our training department through the Digital Training Record Book (DTRB). Also every two months evaluatioins will be made.
Upon return after 12months seatime all cadets will be assessed and tested again and together with performance on board it will be decided if cadets will continue their scholarship. In this program over 80% of all cadets will have obtained their OIC within 18 months of baording.
The Seatrade/Triton cadets will be joined by 23 cadets for Reederei Blue Star who will undergo a slightly different program customized by RBS.
