As a proud partner with Cape Breton University, the Canadian Coast Guard College (CCGC) is excited to announce the official date of their Open House! The College will open its doors May 5th, 2018 as they strive to bring more awareness to the public of the amazing opportunities presented at the CCGC as well as with the Canadian Coast Guard in general. Join the fun from 10:00am – 3:00pm as the Officer Cadets lead guided tours highlighting the Planetarium, Waterfront Facilities and Officer Cadet Residences.
See what it’s like to navigate a real Coast Guard vessel in the Navigation Simulator and learn the ins and outs of an engine room in the Marine Engineering Training Building! Watch as the Officer Cadets perform a drill demonstration and a water rescue demonstration. You can also try your hand at knot tying! Bring the family and let the kids play at the “Little Cadet Corner” and enjoy lunch in the Galley!
Take a tour of the marketplace to explore the Coast Guard Colleges’ partnerships and programs. Follow the tour guides around the Electronics and Informatics Technology Training and Marine Communications & Traffic Services departments as well as the dorms. You will also be able to take part in a question and answer session with a student panel to learn exactly what it’s like to be an Officer Cadet at the College!
They’ll be offering a list of great prizes, so keep up with their social media to get all of the updates!
