Five cadets graduated from Brunei Maritime Academy

June 16, 2019

We strive to be a positive force in the regions where we operate. Training local people is an important aspect of that.

KOTUG sponsored 5 cadets from the Brunei Maritime Academy’s Marine Engineering Diploma programme. They completed their 12-month sea time onboard the 3 tug boats and were sent to Manila, Philippines to undergo their Advanced STCW courses. They obtained their Officer of Engineering Watch (OEW III/1) certification from the Maritime and Port Authority of Brunei Darussalam (MPABD) in 2019, the first successful batch of cadets from the Brunei Maritime Academy to do so. All 5 cadets are now hired full-time into KOTUG as Junior Engineers and are in plans to upgrade their OEW certification to allow them to sail as Second Engineers.
