”This is a fine recognition. I’ve been very lucky with engineers [apprentices]. I am trying to pass around the good and it seems to be working”. – Ville Koskinen, Ylikonemestari

Onboard Training Vessel of the year 2022

Apprentices’ feedback has been processed. We are pleased and honored to announce the 2022 Onboard Training Ship – Congratulations Mirva VG, Meriaura!

Give feedback from your OBT

Apprentice – Always remember to fill in the feedback form at the end of each OBT. With the help of the feedback, we get information about how the OBT on each ship is going and we can ensure consistent quality for each OBT. Feedback is important so that we can evaluate our work and keep the course in the right direction in relation to our goals.

In cooperation
