Read Sam's Story About His Onboard Maritime Learning Experience


Sam Macleod is a 3rd Officer with Caledonian MacBrayne Ferries.
He lives in Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis, and is studying for his Chief Mate Orals with Onboard Maritime.

Here hdescribes the benefits of using our e-learning platform and how the course content is preparing him for his next step up the career ladder.

“I came across Onboard Maritime while looking at options for study before sitting my Chief Mate Orals. I work a 2 weeks on/off rota which made college based study between trips difficult.

I also live in a remote island community which makes travel/accommodation to and from a college for this study difficult, time consuming and expensive. 

The distance learning model used by Onboard Maritime through their online platform has allowed me to study both in my down time at sea and on my leave while at home.

Access is available to the materials through the platform or Dropbox anywhere I have an internet connection, allowing me to study when and where it suits me.

The course is led by an extremely knowledgeable maritime professional with a proven track record in maritime education. 

The original materials and tutorials have been well put together with the most up to date and relevant information.

The combination of the online platform and the instructor led classes gives you a comprehensive learning environment. One-to-one sessions with the instructor through the Zoom app allows you to tailor your learning experience, filling in any specific gaps in your knowledge. 

As you progress, the Zoom app allows you to do "Mock Orals" with the instructor, which you then receive feedback to advise you on specific areas to work on. 

I would highly recommend Onboard Maritime to any seafarer looking to study and progress their career. Their innovative and professional approach to learning is a real game changer for the industry.”
