The Naval Professional Studies and Training educates the officer cadets in both theoretical studies and practical training. The theoretical studies provide basic knowledge and experience in navigation, seamanship and naval operation an adequate level to pursue an advanced professional naval program after graduating from the RTNA.
The professional naval training provides the practical training which will take about 21 weeks through 4 years.
An impression of the overseas training:
III times on fleet training
Naval cadets must go on an fleet training [overseas training] across the sea to foreign countries every year at the end of the academic year. Before that, we will go to the Sattahip Naval Base for about 10 days to prepare for the fleet training...
Our most important experience is to go to other countries, which gives us a different vision. We can see differences between Thailand and the other countries. Some things are good, some things are bad, but we will bring the good things back to develop the Royal Thai Navy and our country.
