My personal blog, general informaton & experiences on my journey


Over the course of my planned career there will be an immense amount of training, both practical and academic. Partly due to my age I have chosen to do a two year Workboat Level 3 apprenticship. This will provide a solid foundation to build a career upon whilst gaining seatime and learning the aspects of vessels running outisde of the bridge. The training for this is being provided by SeaRegs Training based in Plymouth. Simon, Vicky and team could not have been more helpful or accomodating, continuously going beyond the call of duty to address and overcome the obsticals that have arisen (many due to my age, gender and Covid-19 restrictions).

Workboat Crew Level 3

The aim of the course is to train the apprentices to at least a MCA/RYA Yachtmaster Coastal, therefore qualified as a mate on vessels up to 150nm and skipper up to 20nm from a safe haven.

Training includes Electronic Navigation, Radar and Stability training in line with the Workboat Code. This is a very practically based apprenticeship with plenty of training afloat. Apprentices will also be qualified to AEC 1 and 2 on the engineering side, and will also have slingers and crane training and certification in passenger handling and crisis management.
