I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team, especially Mrs. Coetzee, for a brilliant course and high standard of teaching. Please pass on my thanks to her. The team and I from SAIAB really enjoy and appreciate everything that goes into these courses.
My experience with SSTG has been great! I have had hands-on training from Facilitators who have gone out of their way to make us feel comfortable and confident in this industry and meet our different styles of learning. We have had experienced Captains sharing their knowledge and experience with us.
I studied Maritime Economics and Nautical Science at Simon’s Town School and that is where my love for maritime grew. I then had to leave due to family reasons, but I heard about SSTG from SAIMI and I believe that “the sky is the limit”. I would like to follow in the footsteps of Tugmaster Pearl Mackanya, who helped me find out information about my career choices. Doing our Ancillary courses during the year has been a privilege and means we are ready now for our placement as a Cadet. My experience with SSTG has been nothing but helpful and great!
Mr Ntsali passed away tragically in December 2018 in a fatal car accident but he had this to say “”I wanted this opportunity to change our situation at home, to try and be independent and take care of my father. My mentor is Pieter Grove (SSTG Training Manager), he doesn’t know it, but his words and quotes always motivated me. SSTG helped me to believe that anything is possible Captain Bill said “If you can see the stars, you can be a sailor”.
Considering A Career at Sea
Entering the Maritime Industry for a Career at Sea is relatively simple, but you should have a decent understanding of the types of vessels that operate within our waters and what jobs are available on each. Vessels are grouped in general categories in alignment with the tasks they fulfill. Different Vessels require different crew performing different functions and as an Entry point to a Career at Sea you need to have some idea of the job requirements and the entry-level requirements to choose the correct career path.
SSTG Can Help You Choose the Path Right for You!
