The Nautical Fishing School of Palma has been educating professionals for the sector for many years, They recently started a course called “Installing and repairing electronic navigation systems and instruments on recreational and sporting vessels” and a third edition of “Auxiliary operations of systems and equipment maintenance on recreational and sporting vessels”. As these courses came to a completion and the new technicians were released to the job market, we interviewed Toni Mulet from the Nautical Fishing School:
The attendees of the course “Installing and repairing electronic navigation systems and instruments on recreational and sporting vessels” have just left the school. What outlook do these new professionals have in finding a job this season?
Indeed the course is just finished, and we have received very posititive news – we are told that a large part of the group is already working in the companies dedicated to naval electronics.
Also the course “Auxiliary operations of systems and equipment maintenance on recreational and sporting vessels” is just about to finish. How is it going for the attendees of this course?
This course gives a certificate of expert level 1, which covers a variety of basic skills in the areas of mechanics, electricity and rigging. To be specific, right now they are are completing the module of professional practice of 40 hours of duration. Most probably some of them will continue in a working relationship in the companies where they are doing the practice.
We are aware that the companies are mainly searching for technician specialized on level 2. However, we believe that this qualification on the auxiliary level can open doors to young people and long term unemployed who want to get in this part of the job market, where opportunities are growing. The fact that with certificates on level 1 they can gain access to jobs on level 2 within the same specialty is a step forward in improving their working situation and future prospects.
Complete interview will be posted soon.
