Life after the Academy - Specialties
Upon their graduation from the Hellenic Naval Academy, the naval cadets become officers of the Hellenic Navy bearing the rank of Ensign. Their career begins with their appointment to the Navy where they serve as deck officers or engineers for the first three years. During those first years they can— provided they wish to—be selected to be appointed to submarines, helicopters, aircraft of naval cooperation or in Underwater Demolition Teams (UTD). This type of training enables them to acquire knowledge and skills which will be useful in their career.
