Further information

Chevron's cadetship program prepares you to become a future engine officer, but it also teaches you valuable skills that can be used throughout the Company shipping organization.

The cadetship training program includes both classroom studies for theoretical principles and hands-on practical training in the day-to-day operations of the ship. A training officer will monitor your progress and review your work on various projects you'll complete. You'll also get personalized mentoring and training from senior officers in your chosen career path.

Cadetship is an opportunity of a lifetime to sail the seven seas — and you'll get paid to do it! You'll travel to exciting locales on routes that cross the entire globe.

As an engine cadet, you will operate and maintain the ship's machinery, including:

  • Main engine (diesel or steam)
  • Generators
  • Cooling systems
  • Control systems
  • Hydraulics
  • Pumps
  • Air compressors
  • Oil purifiers
  • Distillation plant
  • Overhaul large and small diesel engines
  • Refrigeration systems
  • Make new valve spindles on a lathe
  • Weld broken pipes or tackle any other job needed to keep the ship operating

A valid STCW 95 license as a Engine Officer is required and tanker experience is preferred.
