Captain John Lewis had the pleasure of attending at WMI in Ladysmith to present an NPESC book award to student Aaron Marsden.
Aaron has just completed SCS 3 and did Chartwork 2 before Christmas 2020. He is working on his 150 ton Master’s certificate but only able to take couple of courses at a time due to how COVID is affecting the marine education system right now.
Spring has finally arrived and we are pleased to be able to accept applications for our 2021 Spring Bursary Awards. These awards are open to Nautical Science and Engineering Cadets returning for their second or later school terms as well as other maritime students who meet the minimum enrolment conditions.
We were very pleased to make a book award to Ms. Robin Haynes at Camosun College earlier this week. Robin is a student in the 150 Ton Master program and aspired to work in the coastal tourism industry as a skipperof a natural history cruise vessel. The book awarded to Robin was “Golden Stripes”in which Captain V.S. Parani combines the credibility of his seafaring experience with his talent as a master storyteller to reveal the leadership challenges at sea and his strategies for staying on course.
