“Merchant Navy” is a civilian naval fleet engaged in the transport of goods (cargo) from one location to another for trading purposes. With more than 90% of the world trade being carried by merchant ships, it is indeed the backbone of world trade. This role makes “Merchant Navy” different from the profession of Indian Navy.
Carrying cargo to different parts of the worlds requires and has made “Merchant Navy” a highly regularised profession. Ships today are equipped with the latest technology and provide an opportunity to those who join this profession as seafarers, a career full of adventure, continuous training opportunities and a high income.
Operating a modern ship efficiently requires specialised knowledge. A seafarer thus needs to undergo training to operate and manage a ship. The two main departments of operating a ship are:
Deck or Navigation: Deck officers are responsible for the navigation of the ship and delivery of the cargo at the port of destination as per the time schedule. The department also looks after the general maintenance, administration, observance of national and international “maritime” laws and discipline on board.
Engine: With a basic qualification of engineering, the officers from the Engine Department are responsible for the efficient running and maintenance of the main engines and other equipments to enable the ship to sail as per the schedule.
