The Nautical Institute introduces free membership to students and cadets undergoing initial maritime training or education.

The Nautical Institute (NI), the global professional body for mariners, is delighted to introduce free membership to students and cadets undergoing initial maritime training or education.

The NI, which has just celebrated its 50th Anniversary, has branches around the world with members from all ranks, and provides training and technical resources as well as professional leadership through its representation of members at the IMO.

The Institute has long been an advocate of young mariners joining the NI – it offers not only Continuing Professional Development (CPD) through training and education but also networking opportunities and the chance to learn from more experienced mariners.

Captain John Lloyd, CEO of The Nautical Institute, said: “Younger members are the future of the maritime sector, and it’s important that all involved in our industry do everything possible to make maritime an attractive and supportive career. We have a global network of more than 55 branches and are keen to welcome as many students and cadets as possible so they can benefit from the knowledge of experienced mariners while also sharing their own experiences and views through our technical groups. We are also looking forward to introducing them to our Younger Members' Council.”

Student membership is free for the full length of study, followed by a further ‘grace period’ of up to 12 months while they establish their maritime career. During this time students will have the option to upgrade to full membership of The Nautical Institute at half-price. Click here to join.
