First winner of EDGEucation Scholarship announced

By | uncategorized

We are thrilled to announce our first winner of the EDGEucation Scholarship, for a Helm Management course, which was drawn on 27 April in Barcelona during the MYBA Yacht Charter Show.

Tyrone Sharp is a first officer currently preparing for a busy summer season in the Med. He is looking to take his prize course this coming Autumn.

There are still three chances to win a deck officer’s course so don’t delay in entering! If you don’t win for a prize draw, you will be automatically entered into the next course, so the sooner you enter, the more chance you have of winning!

Full information on the EDGEucation Scholarship can be found here.

BACKGROUND CHECKS: What you should know
