As mentioned in our last Waypoint offering we had been advertising for a Maritime Educator to join our team in the Commercial, CIDMO/SRL department. I am pleased to advise that Ross Winterburn was appointed to join the busy SRL, mentoring team. Ross has an extensive background with Coastguard radio operations, holds an MNZ commercial ticket as well as being a Boating Education Tutor.
Our mentoring process is fully supportive and has been identified by graduates as a key point of difference between Coastguard and other training options available. Our roles as the programme mentors are pivotal to the success of our CIDMO candidates. This is achieved through regular communication, analysis and feedback to each assessment, along with guidance towards completion of their SRL Training Record Book. Through this regular contact a candidate’s knowledge is progressively tested and improved to that required of a commercial skipper. If you or anyone you know is interested in pursuing a professional maritime career, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information, we would be happy to discuss your training options.
