Apprenticeship at sea
Meridian Adventure is passionate about developing young talent into skilled, certified, and strong professionals at sea. The aim of the working apprenticeship is to train novice and aspirant seafarers into skilled, resilient, and trustworthy crew that can safely navigate both calm seas and rough oceans, work across a spectrum of small to large vessels, and deliver an impeccable standard of service, that will be appreciated by discerning guests exploring the spectacular coastlines of the world. We teach a deep respect for the ocean and principles about protecting the ocean that will guide them through life.
Meridian Adventure online & practical maritime-based apprenticeship:
The Meridian Adventure apprenticeship offers a complete and multi-faceted maritime-based education with comprehensive online, theoretical classroom training, and practical ‘at sea’ training. The theory modules are integrated with practical experience across a spectrum of vessels including a fleet of 62’ catamaran sailing vessels, mono-hull sailing boats, multiple tenders, and active water sports equipment.
Across the 3-year working apprenticeship, successful candidates will earn 4 Internationally recognized industry qualifications and multiple Certificates of Competence by Meridian Adventure Sail.
Motived as a T.E.A.M (Together, Everyone, Achieves, More), our novice seafarers have established their own charter that guides their actions, grounded in the values of respect, accountability, self-discipline, motivation, trust, integrity, empathy, and unity.
We have recently restructured our program and are refining how we train and recruit. Prospective candidates will be chosen following their successful results on an E-learning platform hosted by our accredited digital partner schools. Following this, we do telephone and in-person interviews to determine successful candidates who merit their place on the apprenticeship that only trains a handful of applicants. The next intake is scheduled for early 2023.
