Become A Competent Deck Officer By Enrolling in SkillsFuture Work-Study Programme

by Pace Staff Singapore Pace Academy

The role of a Deck Officer is an important one involving a lot of responsibilities. Besides working in an executive department, a Deck Officer also helps in various shipping operations like navigation, manoeuvring and safe handling of the ship. By completing a SkillsFuture Work-Study Programme for Seafaring Deck Officers, you will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive in the position and keep up with evolving needs in the maritime industry over time.

Why is industry experience important?

As a fresh graduate, it is important to boost your employability. Get a head start on your peers when you sign up for a SkillsFuture Work-Study Programme offered by Continuing Education & Training (CET) providers in Singapore to upgrade your skills and stay updated with the industry requirements.

As part of the programme, trainers who know the shipping industry inside out will share their personal experience with participants and equip them with the best knowledge of shipping operations to support them in exploring various career opportunities in the industry.

Lessons delivering the comprehensive course content are kept engaging throughout, and soft skills training to impart leadership, critical-thinking skills and so on are also incorporated.  Participants will learn about onshore and offshore shipping operations, rules and regulations to follow, and get to apply what they have learned through practical examples. It is this balanced approach of industry-based training and soft skills development that will allow participants to quickly adapt and tackle critical situations after entering the industry.

On-the-job training by experienced mentors from key organisations in the industry is another highlight of the programme.

On completion of the programme, participants are awarded with industry recognised certificates that will be a huge value-add in their portfolio to boost their employability.

Other opportunities

Being a Deck Officer with updated industry knowledge, you can perform the following job responsibilities:

● Ship management and fleet operations

● Surveying of ships and informing the management

● Training new seafarers

The Singapore government is committed to support upskilling of the workforce to drive the economy forward. Hence, most programmes are funded by SkillsFuture Singapore. Grab the opportunity to develop a habit of lifelong learning and continue to upskill through industry-relevant courses offered by CET providers.

Completing a SkillsFuture Work-Study Programme will boost the employability and give fresh graduates the perfect head start into an industry. Besides that, there are also Part-time Diploma courses and Post-Diploma Courses available to transform adult learners into high-performing professionals.
