Interested in a career at sea? Listen to what life is like as a Skipper.
But don't forget that as well as the fresh sea air, a career at sea offers great opportunities for advancement. With BIM courses, you could go on to train as a mate - or even a skipper. With a Second Hand Certificate of Competency, you can become a Mate after two years getting your sea legs. And after that, well – you might be thinking of skippering your own boat. Taking overall responsibility for over-seeing the crew and the vessel's safety. Making the decisions about when and where to fish. Everything is possible.
BIM offers a range of qualifications at our training colleges in Greencastle Co. Donegal and Castletownbere Co. Cork. So you're not just looking for for a job – you're talking about a career at sea.
