The Training

Global Marine has recently completed a review of its planning for the future and identified a shortfall of trained technicians to work on future projects. After being involved in marine cadet programs for 25 years and some of the early cadets now holding senior positions within the company, GMSL are looking to recruit 12 Electro-Technical Officer cadets to train with added specialist training, allowing trainees to become system specialists, with an opportunity to progress to higher positions within their organisation.


The training programme will be managed through our marine training company SSTG who have over 30 years experience. It will be conducted in five phases split between South Tyneside college and time at sea working with us.
