Apprenticeship: Ship Operation and Technical Assistant

Afterwards, you will complete a seafaring traineeship, which will be 12 months for mariners and 18 months for technicians, depending on your specialisation. This apprenticeship will lay the foundation for a future career in the shipping industry. After passing the final examination, candidates will have the opportunity to study at a technical college.

Students and Officer Assistants in technical and nautical fields

As a member of the Bremer Rhederverein, the Harren & Partner Group supports the education of young seafarers with a five-year foundation professorship at the Bremen City University of Applied Sciences (Hochschule Bremen) in the field of nautics.

We also support the navigation school Leer and offer internships to seafaring students for practical training on board our vessels. The education required to become a technical and nautical officers' assistant (TOA/NOA) as well as the courses of study in these fields require practical experiences at sea. Over 80 trainees are on board our vessels at any time, and benefit from the knowledge passed on by our experienced seafarers.
