Is there any possibility of reaching a position of cadet trainees on board any American shipping?
I just graduated as a Diploma in [I]E.T.S. [/I][I]Nautical and Naval Engineering[/I] [B]La Coruna, Spain,[/B] and would be interested in serving on board foreign flag, with personal goals:
[B]1st.[/B] Training for use of mate in the merchant marine
[B]2nd. [/B]Improve my oral expression in English
[B]3rd. [/B]Having the opportunity to promote long-term U.S. flag vessels
I would appreciate comments on this issue and if there is the possibility of professional practices in U.S. flag vessels, communicated to me through this forum or my email address [I]“firstname.lastname@example.org”
Thanks for your attention: Jorge Lopez
PD: In Spain we use the expression [I]“salud y buena proa!”[/I] ( literally [I]“health and good bow!”[/I]) among people engaged in maritime work, so … [B]“salud y buena proa!”[/B] to all the American merchant marine brothers!!
