On-the-job training and industry-based theory
Clipper offers a high-profile two-year shipping trainee program at our Copenhagen office.
We are able to maintain a partly self-sustainable inflow of commercial employees by attracting and developing young talent. The program also supports the overall development of the maritime sector.
Our shipping trainee program allows trainees to obtain qualifications in the key areas of shipping – chartering and operations, combined with knowledge of other parts of the shipping business.
At Clipper, trainees are taken seriously, and we offer sound training based on experience. From day one you will have many challenging tasks and personal responsibility. We pride ourselves of our frontline decision making and performance culture, in return we expect you to take charge.
As a trainee at Clipper, you will have excellent career possibilities, a global workplace and expatriation opportunities. We are confident that our trainees will become competent and engaged employees in many years to come.
The program combines industry-based theory and on-the-job training in key departments.
The theoretical training, conducted in English, is delivered through the Commercial Shipping Program conducted by Danish Shipping Academy, which is a part of Danish Shipowners’ Association. Classes include maritime law, maritime economics, ship knowledge, cultural awareness, negotiation and communication.
