Third Officer


I have recently gained an Officer of the Watch (Unlimited) Certificate of Competency class II/1 from the MCA and am looking to begin my seagoing career as a deck officer.

I have completed a BSc degree in Marine Studies (Merchant Shipping) in order to achieve the best knowledge base that I can to maximize my abilities, scope and potential in the maritime field.

I am enthusiastic to gain further skills and qualifications and to expand my experience considerably.
