“Transitioning from high school to the Mariners Bootcamp program was nerve-wracking at first, but the supportive class environment quickly built my confidence in pursuing a career in the maritime industry. Under the guidance of Mr. Ron our director and alongside my classmates, I discovered my potential to excel as a mariner.

Throughout the program, we gained various skills, including knot tying, survival techniques, and the importance of teamwork. These lessons not only equipped me with practical knowledge but also instilled a sense of camaraderie among us.

Now, with a fulfilling job in the maritime sector, I have the opportunity to travel while enjoying the adventure of working at sea. I’m grateful for the foundation laid by the Mariners Bootcamp program, which has opened doors to exciting opportunities and a fulfilling career path.”
