Panamanian cadets seek cadet berths

INTERTANKO has recently been contacted by the International Maritime University of Panama (IMUP) with a request for cadet berths for their graduates.


This December, 70 plus deck and engine cadets, trained according to STCW 78/95, will complete their theoretical studies and will thereafter be seeking prospective employers to enable them to acquire their necessary sea time to be certified as officers, and thus also seek ongoing employment as junior officers.


As members are aware, one of INTERTANKO's Best Practices is for members to engage two cadets per vessel. INTERTANKO therefore encourages members to make the necessary contact with IMUP regarding assessment of the forthcoming available cadets.


Members who are interested in assisting with cadet berths should contact:


Captain Orlando Allard,


Rector of the International Maritime University of Panama
