Q
the process of joining Merchant Navy?

I satisfy and fulfill the criteria for joining so what is the process of joining Merchant Navy?

Asked By: Gagan Reddy,

A
Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise

Joining Merchant Navy as a deck cadet can be done in the following ways:

Method 1:
Apply to Sponsored College for the post of Deck Cadet.
1. The company will invite the applicant for a selection test provided the applicant fulfills all the qualification criteria set by DG Shipping and the Company as mentioned above.
2. Applicant undergoes company selection test which includes a written test, a Psychometric evaluation, Interview and Medical Test.
3. If the applicant is successful in clearing the selection test then he is told to appear the IMU entrance test.
4. On successful passing of the IMU entrance test the applicant is advised to undergo a 1 year pre-sea course at an institute of the company’s choice.

Method 2:
1. Applicant appears for IMU entrance test.
2. Applicant passes the IMU entrance test.
3. Applicant is counseled and he is allocated a Pre-Sea College anywhere in India.
4. Applicant waits for companies to conduct campus recruitment or applies to companies on completion of the course.

Of the 2 methods described above which one is preferred?
The 1st method is preferred as you are employed by a company before having done the course, and you also have an assurance of a sea berth for completing your training. This is not the case with the 2nd method where you have to look for a job on completion of the course.
The on-board training berths are much fewer compared to the pre-sea training seats, hence if you do not have an assured sea berth you may even spend a year trying to get an employment with a shipping company.
In the 1st method you are classified as a sponsored cadet, in the second method you are an un-sponsored cadet.
