    Hiya Dave,

    Welcome to RR.

    Just a little pointer mate, it going to take you, at latest "guestimates" at least 8+ years before you reach CPO mate, so don't think it's a quick way to get a degree- it's a job first & foremost, the qualifications are an added bonus.

    Good luck to you
  4. Ninja, what's all this about studying open-university degrees in your spare time on a boat?

    Yep, you get Enhanced Learning Credits which you can use to finance an OU Degree correspondence course. Many start it, considerably less finish it- it's down to the individual.
  6. Okay, thanks for the info mate!
