I’m a Deck Cadet with my STCW 95’ BST, HUET/ Water Survival, Safe Gulf Card, and have completed DP induction at Kongsberg.
Do any of your companies ever take Cadets. I would like to Sail with a drilling company for one of my sea projects or possibly an OSV company if I can get put on a unlimited tonnage vessel. I Stopped in Diamond and Pacific last month and they weren’t taking any, Transocean and SeaDrill would never get back to me. So I just was wondering if anyone out there working has ever had cadets on board. A lot of the supply boat companies won’t even let me know if they take cadets. Gulfmark and Hornbeck where the only ones who said not at this time because of things being so slow. Otto, Harvey, Seacor… would never even return my voicemails.
Any Input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If I can’t make something work down in the Oil patch, I might have to head for a cable layer.
