My initial reaction after being contacted by DSCM regarding going on the course was, ‘No, I can’t go back to CERBERUS!’ and I thought if only I was promoted one day earlier I would not have to do this Course. Well, now I am very glad that I was promoted that one day later. What a great course. I have always been reasonably confident in my abilities as a Writer but after doing this course, I have greater confidence in my abilities to do my job. The Intermediate Writers’ Course covered everything you will need to know as a Leading Seaman (LS) at sea and gives you the ability to help out the Personnel Officer (PERSO) when required. I may not be an expert but I feel a lot more capable of going to sea as a LS now that I am armed with my information guides from the course, the new information I learnt as well as the knowledge that was refreshed. Knowing that it won’t be completely alien and I should be able to jump into the depths of a new posting and at least swim instead of drowning makes you feel a whole lot happier about that posting. When looking back on the training we were given prior to this course, it was sorely lacking in some areas. It is no surprise some LS were struggling when they went to sea. Hopefully with this new training we can become the writers we have always wanted to be. My advice to all LS and senior ABs who get the chance to do this course is grab the opportunity. Remember knowledge is power and it would be great to go to a new posting knowing you have the knowledge and information required to do your job fully. For those LS who were promoted prior to 1 June 08 and are heading back to sea, I really encourage you to talk to your Supervisor/DO about contacting DSCM to see if you are able to get yourself a position on this course before taking up your sea posting – there is never any harm in asking. You may just hit the ground running!
