Deck & Engineering Officer Open Event
Train to become a Deck or Engineering Officer
There is a demand in the UK and internationally for British Merchant Navy Officers.
Join us at our open event:
Tuesday 13th October
Humber Maritime College, Middleplatt Road, Immingham, North East Lincolnshire, DN40 1FN
You will need to register to attend as Government guidelines are limiting the amount of people we have on site at one time. When you register you will be asked to pick a time slot and whether you are interested in the engineering or navigation cadetship. If you are unsure and would like to look at both pathways, we ask for you to book both tours.
Our priority is keeping yourselves and our staff safe which is why we have put the following in place:
- Wearing masks onsite is mandatory for visitors and staff
- Please only bring one person with you
- Sanitiser stations are located around the building, please use these before entering a new area of the building
- We appreciate if you ensure you social distance.
If Government guidelines change which affects the open event taking place, this will be replaced with a virtual event. All information will be send directly to the email you have registered with.
An Engineering Officer in the Merchant Navy is responsible for the safety, performance and maintenance of the engine room and ship’s technical systems. To work in this role, you must be practical and resourceful and have a real interest in mechanical and electrical systems. Training will take place both onshore and at sea across five different phases. We offer the Engineering Officer HNC/HND programme, which normally takes cadets two-and-a-half to three years to complete depending on the route taken.
