The students are taking part in an alternative employment course organised by the CDTCA
The Adeje programme PFAE
(programme for alternative employment training) geared at younger people is
currently running a training programme, Rompeola, on the different professions
linked to the sea and maritime pursuits, in collaboration with the Los
Cristianos Port Authority. Recently the students enjoyed a practical
session at the port where professionals from different maritime areas shared
For the councillor in charge of
local economic development and employment, Raquel Rodriguez Alonso, “this
training programme is excellent at showing students the kinds of employment
available in this area as professionals in security and aquatic pursuits”.
She thanked the professionals and members of the port authority who had taken
part in the practical day for their time and willingness to assist in the
practical training, under the guidance of the head of port operations, José
Ignacio F. Verduras, as well as contributing to improving the potential
employment opportunities in the sector.
On this occasion the students
were able to see, first hand, the different security and emergency teams in
place at the port, control of port and maritime traffic, the communications
salon, the zone dealing with maritime contamination, seasonal protocols, port
police and lifeguard boats, etc.
The PFAE project, Rompeola (Wave
breaker), is an 11 month course training students to be water safety
professionals. When the course is completed the students will be receiving a
professional certificate which is recognised at European level.
