ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS

WHAT IT IS

This scheme aims to encourage candidates to continue sailing and progress in their seafaring careers. The achievement award is a jointly funded monetary award given to trainees (including DNS and DMR cadets and cadets from the Wavelink Maritime Institute) who obtain their first CoCs.
