Nordnes is focused on education and training of our employees. “Elevation of expertise” is one key sentence that we often use. Nordnes is engaged in many projects that targets increasing and formalization of the knowledge of the fishermen. The largest of these projects is “BRYGGEN Center of Training”, which you can read more about further down the page.
Nordnes has from the beginning had a big focus on taking in apprentices. We consider employing apprentices very important, and as a big responsibility. In 2015 we had 10 apprentices, in addition to two cadets. This makes Nordnes one of the largest training establishments in the Norwegian fishing fleet. Nordnes, with the help from “Marint opplæringskontor”, have trained our staff in working with apprentices, to ensure a good and correct way to becoming a certified fisherman or engineer.
Bryggen center of training
Nordnes took over an old fishfactory on Vigra outside Ålesund, some years ago. The factory-equipment is now gone, and instead the building has been totally renovated and houses today an up to date trawlfactory, storage facilities, 100 meters of quayside and a small-scale fishfactory, mainly for educational use. The facility is now named “Bryggen Center of Training”.
All examination of fisherman-apprentices in our region, are now taken at Bryggen. There are also a lot of courses taking place there.
Affiliated Bryggen is the vessel “Nordbas”, which is specially built for training of students in the use of trawl, Danish seining and general seamanship.
Nordnes offers a wide range of exciting and varied positions such as fisherman, navigational officer, engineer, mechanical engineer and so on, onboard our vessels.
We offer a workday with many different and exciting challenges. This is far from an average “nine to five” workplace, but the workday is structured and divided into shifts with the same amount of time off duty, as on duty.
Nordnes is focused on elevation of competence and higher education of our employees, and our big goal is that our crews shall possess the best knowledge and competence possible; in all departments, at all time.
We have a good and stabile crew, but there will always be some turnover.
