Two Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDVs) have been tasked with helping out with Naval Warfare Officer (NWO) II course delivery to relieve high summer demand on the training system.
“HMCS Brandon and HMCS Edmonton are pushing through a backlog of trainees needing to complete the sea phase of NWO II before continuing their trade training,” said Petty Officer First Class (PO1) Nicolas Robichaud, HMCS Edmonton’s Coxswain.
The NWO II course is one course in the many stages of NWO training. Over the last decade, the course’s sea phase has been conducted on the ORCA class, however, this summer it will consist of three waves of 20 students crewing HMCSs Brandon and Edmonton over a total of six weeks.
