In an effort to increase the number of qualified competent officers at sea and to safeguard the tanker industry of the future, INTERTANKO Members have agreed to a Best Practice to commit to enlisting Apprentice Officers (Cadets) for each tanker operated, where suitable, ensure certified cabin space exists onboard their tankers to accommodate them, and where it is possible, to enlist young, capable Cadets of a suitably qualified nature.
In addition to recognising the trend in today’s practice of restrictions in accommodation by ship yards, INTERTANKO Members further agree that new-buildings should include suitable certified cabin space for cadets as part of any new-building specification. INTERTANKO will continue to promote cadet berthing to assist Members in complying with this Best Practice.
