Book Award Made to WMI Student

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.

Book award at Camosun

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 skipper of 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.
