Norwegian apprentices and cadets

We believe in building future competency within the company. Therefore, every year, new apprentices, and cadets join our company trainee programs. This training will provide the skills needed to become either an able seaman, motorman, electrician or officer. As a trainee, you will be well taken care of. A training instructor will be appointed to you, responsible for your professional development. Our instructors have a certificate of proficiency as assessor. In addition to building your competency and skills, we can guaranty you a great social experience as well.
