What are the best Engineering Cadetships?

Hi all,

Apologies if this post is diversifying a little from the RFA, but if I don't manage to get myself an RFA cadetship, Can anyone advise in some of the other better engineering cadetships? There's so many! I'm thinking BP, Shell, princess cruises? Seems like the training is very similar, but there's other elements to take into account like pay after training, life onboard, etc..... I presume the type of ship had a bearing on pay, experiences etc.... (oil, cargo, cruises, etc....)

Cheers Dan

Hi Matt,

I've been searching that forum for the last hour actually! It's been very helpful. Still hopefully this post can stay up as all opinions are welcome! Thanks

I am indeed yes, whilst imagine the College side of things are much alike, I figured they pay and experiences on the ships would be different. Tbh off what I've been readin up on for the last two hours, most companies it seems offer good training schemes and once you have your "ticket" you can transfer to other vessel types and diversify a little if you wanted. It's just helped put my mind at ease about me worrying about potentially applying for what would be a company with a poor cadetship.

Tbe pay is between 600 to 1000 per month depending on company. The RFA is one of the top payers I believe .

Consider the working language of their ships. It will be miserable lonely and a crap learning experience if you are-as happens- you are the only one who speaks English to the required standard.

The big cruise lines, even if the officers are 'foreign' they'll speak good English and are more likely to mix socially, proper wardroom/officers' mess and deck privileges ( mix with passengers*) compared to cargo lines where cabin with lap top porn stash/X Box is as entertaining as it gets.

* shagging them is a P45 offence.

There are lots of good cadetships but I sense that shore agencies with no ships of their own who 'manage' cadetships are to be avoided. They may send cadets for their sea phases to random ships and some cadets come home rather disenchanted.

Get the Nautilus Telegraph, join Nautilus. Someone mentioned a cadet centric website.

I have never been a cadet but getting an impression of the good the bad and the ugly isn't hard when you know where to look and what to look for.
