The Eazy Cadet

With over 20 years in the industry; experience at a host of ranks and sailing on container, tanker, passenger and government vessels, we have seen much of the seagoing industry. Add to that experience ashore in dry-docks, teaching and working on SMS and procedure updates post-MLC, we are able to bring a wealth of experience to your studies. During our careers, we have found that there is no EAZY way to learn, revise or have questions answered relating to issues or fears onboard. We decided to create this company as a safe haven for all Merchant Navy Cadets and Officers to provide resources and encouragement to ensure you achieve your goals.
