Cadet & Trainee Program


The KOTUG Cadet & Trainee program supports the education and development of students, marine cadets, and Indigenous trainees as a way to identify new talent and prepare individuals for future, ongoing employment with KOTUG Canada once they graduate, or become Transport Canada certified.


KOTUG Canada will facilitate this process by offering temporary work placements for Cadets and Indigenous Trainees to gain valuable work experience and sea time towards their marine certification. Additionally, KOTUG Canada may provide funding towards supplementary training courses to help facilitate the process where there is a perceived benefit to the student, trainee and company guidelines.
