Your Journey starts here with a Cadetship

All sectors of the maritime industry areas such as ferries, marine tourism, pearling, fishing and ship servicing all have a common factor is that they all have licensing prerequisites including sea time, which is where STV One and All can be positioned to assist. For anyone to complete their required license needs sea time. One and All, being a commercial registered vessel can offer the sea time.

With the requirement for pre-employment qualifications, sea time, and the growth of maritime logistics, there is a need for more to join this unique and exciting industry. The Cadetship is a logical pathway to enter the maritime industry.
