Technical apititude
A university or advanced technical college entrance qualification
Good to satisfactory grades in mathematics and physics
The ability and readiness to communicate in English

Trainees conclude a contract with CSG to train as ship mechanics. CSG mentors trainees during the traineeship and plans, for instance, deployment on Hamburg Süd vessels. During the time aboard, the future ship mechanics are taught the practical knowledge and skills required for service in the deck and engine departments. Voyage time totals approximately 16 months. The stipulated classroom training blocks are completed at the Maritime Vocational Training School in Lübeck-Travemünde, Rostock or Elsfleth.

The terms for ship mechanic training are governed by the applicable German seamen’s wage agreement (HTV-See). Traineeships for shipboard personnel usually begin every January or August.
