Sultan trainees benefit from links to IMarEST

6 September 2017
Marine Engineers and Technicians at HMS Sultan are to be offered enhanced learning opportunities, thanks to a new agreement with the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST).

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which was recently agreed between the Defence College of Technical Training’s Defence School of Marine Engineering (DSMarE) and IMarEST will see the two exchange ideas and information in order to promote best practice.

As part of the MOU, IMarEST will provide support towards trainees’ technical and professional development.

In addition, trainees will receive additional support towards professional registration at Engineering Technician, Incorporated Marine Engineer and Chartered Marine Engineer status. 

This agreement ensures we are training our engineers to the highest standard for Marine Engineering and that they can achieve a level of registration which is recognised as a worldwide benchmark for our profession.

Throughout their studies, trainees will benefit from Student membership of the IMarEST, including discounted access to conferences and events.

The Commanding Officer of HMS Sultan, Captain Peter Towell said: “I am delighted that we have reached a Memorandum of Understanding with IMarEST.

“This agreement ensures we are training our engineers to the highest standard for Marine Engineering and that they can achieve a level of registration which is recognised as a worldwide benchmark for our profession.”
