You'll be based onsite at HM Naval Base Devonport, learning from industry professionals and regularly assessed by our training provider.

On completion of your training programme and the End Point Assessment, you'll earn a nationally recognised apprenticeship certificate as a Level 5 Operations/Departmental Manager.
