Cadet Area


#1

We have launched a new area that is for Cadets Only. No other mariners, teachers, school administrators will be approved for this area of the forum in the hopes of giving cadets a place they can talk freely about their concerns and share stories about the life of a cadet.

I have already approved the cadets we know to be gCaptain participants. If you are a cadet and do not have access to this area of the site then please PM me or reply to this post.

Hi,
I’m just finishing up the PMI 2 year program and have been sailing as a cadet - do we count too?

HI,
There is another group of people that are technically cadets/student observers. The 11 month program has them training, going out to sea for three months (Sea Project) returning for training etc eventually becoming AB/RFPNW 's or FOWT/RFPEW’s.
The Apprentice Program formally the trainee program has been around since the 70’s and has given many a mariner his or her start at the school in Piney Point.
Although hawspipers these students are receiving credit toward a nautical science or marine engineering undergraduate degree I think they fit into your forum.
I would suggest that maybe their perspective and adventures may surprise the readers of the cadet forum.
Thank You
