In addition to the job specific training you will receive when joining Fullers, there are opportunities to gain further qualifications to move forward in your marine career.

Marine Qualifications include:

Certified Deckhand Qualification (CDH)

Fullers is proud to be associated with the New Zealand Maritime School in facilitating the Certified Deckhand Qualification within the workplace.

This entry level qualification will be the industry prerequisite for deckhands and aspiring Masters!

At Fullers we provide full support for our On Board Services crew who wish to achieve this qualification. Our On Board Services crew may be able to begin working towards gaining this qualification during their first year with Fullers and is part of their ongoing training and development.

Inshore Launchmaster (ILM)

A career at Fullers can lead to a crew member gaining their In Shore Launchmaster qualification. This qualification allows you to be the Master of a vessel up to 20m in length within the Inshore Limits. The ILM would be a minimum requirement for working within the following industries: Fishing, Adventure Tourism, Tugs and Barges, and of course Passenger Ferries!

Marine Engineer Class 5 (MEC 5)

The Marine Engineer Class 5 qualification allows you to be an engineer on a vessel greater than 1000HP (750KW) working within Inshore Limits.

This qualification combined with the ILM makes the holder a valuable asset to any maritime industry employer as a 'Dual Ticketed Master'.

Please note:

We encourage all our people who demonstrate both the aptitude and the right attitude to move forward in their marine careers at Fullers by gaining further qualifications.

Fullers support can include paid study leave to attend training courses and payment of course fees. In return for our investment we ask that you complete a specified period of service for us.
