This program has been planned in co-operation with Transport Canada Marine Safety and Security (TCMSS) and Canada’s shipping companies. Students acquire a complete education which will prepare them for the occupation of ship’s Navigation Officer. The specialized competencies and work experience also provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary for employment in government and in other marine-related industries.
Grads get great jobs
Marine industry employers like what they see in our graduates. A shortage of qualified engineering and navigation officers in Canada and abroad means our graduates are in demand. Our graduates find rewarding jobs with rapid advancement, working on the great lakes and on ships at sea worldwide. Starting salaries range from $60,000 to $80,000.
Students learn through a progressive mix of skills training, shipboard training and academic studies, including navigation training in our marine simulators. The program involves six academic semesters accompanied by two mandatory co-op terms. Navigation cadets (students) get a total of 365 days of sea time over those work terms.
This program is accredited by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE).
This accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for co-operative education programs in Canada, and recognizes Georgian’s commitment to quality in co-op education.
Graduates of this program may find rewarding careers as ship’s officers on board commercial vessels throughout Canada and the world. This three-year co-operative cadet training program may lead to career advancement to senior ranks on board ship and to positions of leadership in the marine industry.
Graduates are eligible to write examinations for the Transport Canada Watchkeeping Mate Certificate of Competency and can gain employment in domestic and international shipping industries.
