I graduated in 1998, so my memories of the school might differ from the reality of today, however I believe the school has a great program regardless. I learned leadership skills, maritime skills, and overall practical life-type skills. I don't remember much of my physics and pre-calc classes, but that's not what I went to CMA for. I learned about navigation, maritime law, and how to anchor and dock a ship. These are skills I still use today. Our student body was para-military and we had great camaraderie between us- we all worked together and helped each other out. We were shipmates. I remember being on the annual training cruise with all of my classmate buddies as an 18-year-old. We were standing on the fantail enjoying the evening air and being at sea, on our way cruising to Hawaii. I thought to myself- where else could I get an education like this? This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! I have never regretted it, I would go back again, and my career is where it is today because of the education and training I received there.
questionHi, im intersted in what type of job you got out of CMA. How's your salary? also, how easy was it to find a job?
