Canadian Coast Guard College?

Loyola's latest News Release

The Canadian Coast Guard College proudly welcomes 40 new recruits to its Cape Breton campus this fall to enter the Canadian Coast Guard Officer Training Program.

This four-year program is a partnership between the College, the regions and CCG headquarters, and prepares trainees for Transport Canada certification as officers in either Marine Engineering or Navigation. Upon graduation, officer trainees will also receive a Bachelor of Nautical Sciences from Cape Breton University.

The goal of the Canadian Coast Guard College is to provide the finest education to produce the best qualified Coast Guard Officers. Depending on the stream, they will either develop skills to operate and maintain the machinery and equipment of Coast Guard ships or learn navigational skills, both of which are vital to the success of missions. After four years, these officer trainees will have gained the confidence, knowledge, and discipline they need to have an exciting career in the Canadian Coast Guard.

For more than 40 years, the College has been delivering quality marine training to support Canada's role in the marine industry, to help protect our vast ocean resources, and to ensure the safety of our waterways.

Anybody in Newfoundland and Labrador like to see part of that transferred to Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador. Think the Marine Institute can handle this?

Still no head office of a federal crown corp in Newfoundland and Labrador.
