Qualifications

At the conclusion of the initial training the successful trainee will have attained:

  • Foundation Degree (FdSC) in Marine Operations & OOW Certificate of Competency - Deck
  • Foundation Degree (FdSC) in Marine Engineering & OOW Certificate of Competency - Engine
  • Foundation Degree (FdEng) in Marine Electrical and Electronic Engineering & OOW Certificate of Competency - METO
  • Other industry recognised qualifications are also available including HND (Higher National Diploma) or Scottish equivalents.

There is a national shortage of Officer Trainees (Cadets) within the marine industry largely due to a previous lack of advice, guidance and information on these careers and their prospects. Hence it is a good time to apply if you have the predicted examination grades and qualities that are needed.

Viking’s commitment to industry training is demonstrated by our approval as a Training Provider under the Support for Maritime Training Scheme currently known as SMarT.
