CSM part­ners with school of sea­man­ship

The Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land (CSM) has es­tab­lished a new part­ner­ship with the Sea­far­ers Harry Lun­de­berg School of Sea­man­ship (SHLSS) in Piney Point. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from both of the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions signed a me­moran­dum of un­der­stand­ing about the new re­la­tion­ship at the Piney

Point fa­cil­ity June 5.

Stu­dents in the one-year ap­pren­tice­ship pro­gram at the SHLSS are train­ing for en­try-level po­si­tions in the U.S. mer­chant marine. Start­ing this fall se­mes­ter, the part­ner­ship with CSM will en­able those stu­dents to also earn col­lege credit and work to­ward an as­so­ciate of ap­plied science de­gree in Mar­itime Op­er­a­tions Tech­nol­ogy, with an op­tion of a de­gree in ei­ther nau­ti­cal science or marine engi­neer­ing. Un­der this new part­ner­ship, CSM will pro­vide the gen­eral ed­u­ca­tion courses and SHLSS will pro­vide the tech­ni­cal courses.

The Sea­far­ers Harry Lun­de­berg School of Sea­man­ship is af­fil­i­ated with the Sea­far­ers In­ter­na­tional Union of North Amer­ica, At­lantic, Gulf, Lakes and In­land Wa­ters, AFL-CIO (SIU). It is a vo­ca­tional school that for the past 50 years has been ded­i­cated to pre­par­ing stu­dents for ca­reers at sea. The SHLSS pro­vides en­try-level train­ing for in­di­vid­u­als who wish to be­gin a sea­far­ing ca­reer as well as classes for ex­pe­ri­enced sea­far­ers to per­mit them to up­grade their skills.

The SHLSS is lo­cated on the cam­pus of the Paul Hall Cen­ter for Mar­itime Train­ing and Ed­u­ca­tion, which con­sists of more than 60 acres on the wa­ter­front in Piney Point.
