Entry-Level Mariner Course: Ordinary Seaman
Time & Location
About The Event
The Entry-Level Merchant Mariner Course take place in two phases:
Phase 1 - Online Coursework
Students complete eight modules of uniquely designed distance learning curriculum on Eliademy, where they work through entry-level maritime education with an online instructor. This phase is expected to take 8 weeks and is self paced throughout each week. Topics of this course include entry-level deckhand skills, basic engine room lessons, and professional development exercises. At the end of this phase (depending on timing), students will submit the necessary paperwork for their Merchant Mariner Credential with an OS rating, have developed a maritime resume and will have already investigated jobs in the maritime field.
Phase 2 - Volunteer Crew
Once students complete their online coursework, they receive a formal evaluation from their instructor. If ready to continue their education, students are encouraged to join a GHHS vessel or alternate tall ship as Volunteer Crew for 2-8 weeks to gain hands-on experience. Students serve as crew members on their assigned vessels, and participate in the daily activities and responsibilities of a working ship.
