The traineeship programme is addressed mainly to young university graduates, without excluding those who have recently obtained a university diploma and are at the beginning of a new professional career.
The traineeship programme aims to provide trainees with work experience in the field of maritime safety legislation, response to pollution at sea and cooperation among member states in safety at sea matters. In-service training enables trainees to acquire practical experience by means of their work and put into practice the knowledge they have acquired during their academic studies or professional careers in the areas of maritime safety, communication or administration.
