Awards for Mcast maritime cadets

Date: 10/07/2013

Three Mcast Maritime Institute cadets who distinguished themselves with outstanding performance and results in their studies were recently presented with the Grimaldi Award at a ceremony held at the institute’s premises in Kalkara.

Tim Fenech, Szabolcs Pocza and Patrick Darmanin won the award, including a total of €10,000 in cash prizes, which is sponsored by Grimaldi Group and its local company Malta Motorways of the Sea Ltd, as part of a long-established collaboration with the institute.

The students received the award for obtaining the best results during their studies and sea training as part of the three-year Officer in Charge Navigational Watch course, which they successfully completed last year.

Students on this course spend two academic years studying at the institute and 12 months training as cadets on board different ships, travelling across international sea routes and visiting many ports across the globe.

The institute offers courses that lead to local and international qualifications for people aspiring for a career in this industry, as well as for maritime enthusiasts, including owners and drivers of all kinds of boats and pleasure craft.
