ACA Academy expects all students to maintain a regular daily journal, in English, of relevant activities undertaken while onboard. This journal will be co-signed by the Principal and the Captain.
It is well recognized by the industry that documented evidence of real work experience beyond completion of certificates and diplomas is the real evidence of competency required by employers.
Academy requires all supernumerary Sea Eagle students, GAP year of VET Supervised, to maintain a personal log of all relevant experiences during their time on the ship. This log is countersigned and attested to as true evidence of experience and forms part of the ACA Internship Parchment.
