    Re: Details about Merchant Navy course and it's institute

    hai friend,,

    Merchant Navy
    Merchant Navy is one which not only ensures a good life with lucrative pay packet but also offers a challenging opportunity to be with one of the greatest creations of nature seas / oceans for days/ months on end, Unlike the regular Navy, which is responsible for defending the territorial waters of a country, Merchant Navy is the noncombatant commercial fleet which transports cargo from one destination to another around the globe by sea. At times, it transports people as well. Since air transportation of goods is quite prohibitive and limited in scope, it's the ships which carry 90 percent of would trade. With seaborne trade forecast to almost double over the next 15 years, one can very well imagine the number of people, this sector can employ right now and in future. Despite the fact that Indian shipping fleet among the developing countries and ranks among the top countries in the would in shipping tonnage, there is still a big scope for expansion since our ships carry only 43 percent of the country's seaborne trade.
    The areas of activity in Merchant Navy are broadly grouped in three categories:
    Navigation;
    Engineering; and
    Radio & Wireless Communication.
    Navigation:
    Officers in this category concern themselves with navigation of the ship, the loading and off-loading of cargo and safety of the passengers (if any) and the crew. The Captain of the ship is the chief navigator. He decides the course the ship would take and guides the ship to safety during inclement weather and other emergencies. The Captain takes complete charge of the men and materials boarding the ship.
    Eligibility for Merchant Navy
    The eligibility conditions and options to join the Merchant Navy are as follows:
    (1) To join the navigation or marine engineering branch of Merchant Navy, one must have a bachelor's degree in Mechanical or Marine Engineering or a degree of B.Sc. in Nautical Science from any recognized university of institute.
    (2) One can also join as a deck cadet on board a ship after completing 10 + 2 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and train on the job for three years. After the on-job training one has to appear for the competency examination, as required by the Union Ministry of Surface Transport, to be eligible to become a Navigation Officer.
    Courses in Merchant Navy
    The courses related to Merchant Navy should be approved by Director-General of Shipping, Government of India. The various pre-sea courses for joining Merchant Navy either as a Deck/Engineer Officer are:
    A four-year degree course leading to BE (Marine) after 10+2.
    The 2? years courses leading to Alternate Training Scheme for Marine Engineers (ATS) after 10+2.
    Degree courses leading to B.Sc. (Nautical Science) after 10+2.
    The Graduate Mechanical Engineer course after BE/B.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering.
    Physical Requirements for Merchant Navy
    In addition, all the candidates who apply for the degree course should be physically and mentally fit. The Navigators are required to have a perfect eyesight, though marine engineers can wear spectacles for eyesight up to plus/minus 2.5. Colour blind people need not apply.
    There are two premier institutions which impart training for Merchant Navy:

    Re: Details about Merchant Navy course and it's institute

    Hi Guest,

    As you completed just 10th you will not be eligible to apply for merchant navy.


    The minimum qualification required is to complete your 10+2 so that you will be having few options to apply for the Navy.


    So I suggest you to complete your education first and later if you are interested you can prepare for merchant navy written exam and interview process also.

    Thank you,

    All the best.
