Sea Term III - Deck

Course Description

The sea term provides an opportunity for cadets to obtain sea service as an officer in charge of a navigational watch in a structured shipboard training program which is compliant with Chapter II of STCW and the requirements of 46 CFR Subpart C. The training uses a building block approach bringing the cadet up to an acceptable level of proficiency in each area of required competence. Shipboard training is closely integrated with the shore-based academic curriculum at the Academy. Focusing on all aspects of shipboard operations, the Junior Sea Term is an opportunity for the Marine Transportation Cadet to explore the vessel and learn its systems. The cadet will then utilize that information while assisting in the operation of the vessel and while standing watches. Much of what would be covered in the Commercial Sea Term is contained within the project for this course.
