Final exam at skipper school
On Friday, 36 students at Skagen Skipper School finished their final exams. The completion differed from previous ones, as the school had a class of shipmasters graduate for the first time.
"With shipmasters in some of the chairs today, the school has entered a new era where Skagen Skipper School can now also call itself a navigation school," said superintendent Anders C.T. Andersen.
"We are proud that we have succeeded, we are proud to have been the first team that has persevered despite many challenges not only in the academic area and we hope and believe that the future will show that Skagen Skipper School will be the school to choose whatever navigational training you need and want," said the superintendent.
The superintendent addressed the students:
"I sincerely hope that you are beginning to understand yourself. It is a management education that you have completed. You will go out and lead others, have responsibility for others and grades will not be enough here. You must use humanity and insight in your own abilities."
"You are needed in an international business and one of the things that will make Danish navigators attractive, is that the academic aspect is on point, but most important of all is that you can think for yourself and actively help to create a good and safe workplace", said Anders C.T. Andersen.
