Education & Learning >> Professional Training | Uttaranchal»Dehradun | 29-Sep-2010

Siroi Maritime Academy of Merchant Navy, Dehradun provides Pre-Sea Deck-Cadet Training from all over India. The Training period is of 3 and half months. To join the training a student has to give an entrance test and a medical test, followed by an interview. The Entrance Test is based on objective type questions of General Knowledge of 60 marks total, 40 marks of Interview. After passing the three stages, the student is eligible for the training of Merchant Navy. The Academy claims to give each n every student placement in foreign shipping within these six months. After the admission he has to pay fees 1,20,000 in form of a DD .He has to live for four months in Academy. The fees includes lodging facility in a very peaceful and spacious environment ; dress material; food material; swimming training; spoken English classes; personality development classes; ship visits and so on.



Deck Cadets learn to load ships,  store cargo, handle gear, stationary rigging, and running gear, and learns ship stability, ship maneuvering and ship management and  perform a variety of operations and maintenance tasks to preserve the painted surface of the ship and to maintain line and ship equipment. In the process, they earn qualified sea time hours. In short, a deck cadet performs all navigational and maintenance duties on a water based vessel under supervision of a deck officer.

Once you have passed all of your classes, paid all your dues and spent your 3 years of training time aboard a ship, you can then apply to become an entry level seaman or officer. From there, you can continue on and work your way up the career chain.

Navigation today uses both satellite and other electronic means but a fundamental understanding of more traditional techniques is still vital to cope with all possible situations. Seamanship and safety are also of great importance for in spite of all the safeguards allowed by modern technology the sea will forever be a hostile environment. All of these skills will be learned by a mixture of training and practical experience. The ultimate goal of the Deck officer is to become Master of his/her own ship; leadership skills and man management are, therefore, also essential ingredients here.

A career at sea offers a wide experience and challenging work environment. Experienced mariners are in great demand in various shore assignments because of their ability to handle all types of jobs, their resourcefulness, sense of responsibility and ability to work under most demanding circumstances. A deck officer is very valuable and responsible member of ship's team. He has to navigate the ship from one port to another in all circumstances with caution and safety at all times and maintains the equipment operated him in good working order. This gives him watch experience and tremendous confidence.

However, it must be understood that the life of an officer is tough, and not suited for the weak hearted. But there are compensation as well a class III certificate of competence holder starts as a third officer (approx Salary: US$ 3000) with prospectus of becoming a master in about 8 years (approx salary US$ 7000-14000) plus leave and allowances. 


The Master is the overall in charge of the ship and is more popularly known as the Captain. But one has to join at the bottom rung of the marine ladder and spend years of training to become an officer. What is a Cadet? The merchant navy is the backbone of international trade. More than ninety percent of cargo in the world is transported by sea. Trained people are essential in this demanding field. A cadet starts at the bottom of the maritime job ladder. Much like in the armed forces, a cadet is, simply put, a future officer under training. Although rules about training and certification (the examinations a cadet and later, an officer takes regularly to be eligible for a higher rank) vary from country to country, the basics are the same.

The Deck officers Deck officers are in charge of the navigation of the ship. In addition, they are incharge of the cargo that a ship carries. The Captain or the Master of the ship is the overall in charge. He is responsible for the safe navigation of the vessel and is incharge of the ship, all the officers and crew, the safety its crew and the cargo. He has, working under his command, the first mate, second mate and third mates, all of whom have navigational and cargo duties. The Chief Engineer and the Engine Department also report to him for all operational matters, and so do all other Departments on board.

The First Mate / Chief officer is the second in-command. He is in charge of cargo, maintenance of the Deck Department and crew discipline. The Second Mate / Second officer, assistant to the First Mate is in-charge of navigational equipment and charts. He is the 'Navigating Officer'. He reports to the Chief Officer on cargo matters. The Third Mate / Third officer is responsible for keeping lifeboats, liferafts and other safety and firefighting equipment in order. He reports to the Chief Officer on cargo matters and assists the Second Officer in the upkeep of nautical publications.

The Start Trainees, or cadets, must join the ‘Deck’ or Navigation department to progress towards a Master’s (Captain’s) rank. The options the student who wants to join the merchant navy as a deck cadet will include either - a 3 year degree course in Nautical Science for (10+2) students . After completing of the 3-year course, a student is awarded a Degree in Nautical Science and is required to go on board ship for sea training or around a year or in some cases a little more.. or --a 3 month course for Deck Cadets for (10+2) students. After completion of the course, the student has to get sea training for anything between eighteen months and 3 years, depending on the country.
