  • On and off the job coaching by a mentor, dedicated business coach, and external coach.
  • Internal- and external training sessions in order to give you and your fellow Trainees more information to be able to discover what motivates you in order to specify your development goals.
  • Safety courses. Safety is a top priority within Boskalis and to be able to work on our project you need to follow safety courses such as BOSIET and First Aid.
