Maritime Apprentice


At Maritime Services we are keen to reach out into the local communities to bring in new apprentices to train the next generation of sea farers.  To date we have successfully been able to offer full time employment to the majority of our apprentices. 

We offer a Deck Apprenticeships programme which on completion results in an MCA accredited Able Seaman ticket.  Our Out of Port vessels SD Victoria and SD Northern River allow us to offer our apprentices sea-time.  We also a 2.5 year engineering (shore-based) apprenticeships in Portsmouth and Devonport.
