Passing out ceremony marks World Maritime Day programme
Thane: Registro Italiano Navale (RINA), Marine Division, Area Manager (India, Sri Lanka & Bangladesh) A Devadas called upon young sea cadets to aquire knowledge and transform into practical to mark the World Maritime Day, observed on September 25.
He was addressing cadets who passed out of the Anglo-Eastern Maritime Academy (AEMA) after successfully completing courses in marine Engineering, diploma in nautical science, here today.
Devadas, congratulating the cadets said, “Do not give up your dreams. Knowledge is the supreme power but it should be transformed into practical mode.”
He said that the senior staff should encourage the young mariners to use their knowledge with practicality.
Deputy Managing Director, Technical, AESM, Singapore Orson Lobo who was the guest of honour said that the cadets have accomplished their first mile stone (of passing out from the academy) but life on board ships is not that easy.
A career in shipping is quite demanding and one should not feel depressed with small failures, he said, adding, it is important for cadets to take care of the environment and to follow right practices and procedures while on board.
Anglo-Eastern Maritime Academy is a nautical college owned by mother company – Anglo Eastern Ship Management Ltd, Hong Kong and offers courses in field of shipping.
