TESTIMONIALS - Daniel's Success Story

DANIEL was patiently awaiting his final examination results from The University of the West Indies at St. Augustine where he studied for his BSc. Mechanical Engineering degree. He heard of the SRDC through a friend and decided to send his Resume for our consideration.


An interview was scheduled where his school certificates and recommendations was carefully reviewed. It was July/August summer holiday period and the SRDC recommended that he undergo an internSHIP at one of our S&R stakeholder shipyards.


After a brief 4-week period, his dedication and ability to carefully use his hands and not being afraid of "grease," was quickly recognized by both his supervisor and the shipyard owner. Today, Daniel is still very passionate about his first job and says "I learn many new things, related to my love of engineering. Recently, I also enrolled in part-time classes to become NEBOSH certified, as this will greatly assist my maritime career."

LEEVON formerly worked at Atlantic LNG export terminal, located in south-western, Trinidad and Tobago, very near to where he had grown-up. Unfortunately, due to a severe curtailment in the feed stock supply of natural gas to the 15 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) LNG plant, he was made redundant.


Nevertheless, Leevon persevered and came across the SRDC on their LinkedIn social media platform. He decided to make a telephone call and this was soon followed by an interview process. A paid internSHIP period was suggested and he gladly agreed.


Today, Leevon is using his NEBOSH training to improve the Occupational Safety and Health systems at Maritime Preservation Limited, a leading shipyard located at the port of Port of Spain. Having learnt high level safety requirements for the LNG sector at his former job site, he recognises that the same level of safety is also demanded in the global shipbuilding & repair industry.

We welcome inquiries from serious-minded persons interested in wanting to learn about employment opportunities and/or a rewarding career in the shipbuilding & repair/ maritime industry. In this regard, we can arrange for you to begin a paid internSHIP.


On land or on the sea, learn while being paid to become an active part of our global industry.  Our graduate interns will also have the further opportunity to be directly employed at our La Brea Shipyard Port project located at Point D'or, Ward of La Brea, currently being established.

In 1595, Sir Walter Raleigh arrived in Trinidad in search of El Dorado, the fabled city of gold. He attacked Port of Spain with cannons, and sacked St. Joseph. While sailing across the Gulf of Paria, he reputedly smelled the tar, and put into shore at Terra de Brea.


The Caribs led Raleigh to the pitch lake, and he realized that the substance was ideal for caulking his ships. He took several barrels home with him, and has since been credited with “discovering” the lake.
