ENGINEER OFFICER
A career in the Merchant Navy as an Engineer Officer can be a rewarding
one, both financially and in terms of job satisfaction. There are only a few ex-
seafaring Engineers who do not look back at their time on board ship as a happy
and worthwhile experience. For the able young officer, this system provides
a smooth and rapid path of career development. The process is likely to take
less than eight years from the commencement of cadetship till qualifying with
Class 2 Certificate and probably half as long again before an appointment as a
Chief Engineer can be expected.
Most ships have 4 or 5 Engineer Officers ranging in seniority from the most
junior 5th or 4th Engineer Officer through the ranks of 3rd and 2nd Engineer
Officer to finally Chief Engineer Officer. In progressing from the Engine Cadet
to Chief Engineer Officer, one can expect to serve in each of these capacities
in turn. Promotion from one to the other will depend on the Certificate of
Competency held, the quality of experience and of course, personal merit.
Most Marine Engineers do not remain at sea throughout their working life.
After having gained their Class I Certificate and experience as a senior officer
on board, they seek employment ashore. Shore based employers generally
have high regard for the seafaring engineer and consequently the transfer
from shipboard to land based employment is usually easily achieved.
CAREERS AFTER SEA
For those aspiring to step ashore after a career at sea as an Engineer
Officer, future career paths include:
Government Surveyors of Ships & Machinery
Classification Society Surveyors
Service Engineers of Specialist Plant and Machinery
Lecturers of Maritime Education
Engineering Superintendents of Shipping Companies

DECK OFFICER
You will start your career in the Merchant Navy with a certain period of
training in Nautical Training Institutions ashore. Thereafter you will go to sea
on merchant ships as a Deck Cadet for a further specified duration of sea
service. This sea-service on board is an essential part of the training, which
will lead you to your immediate goal of Deck officer Class 3 Certificate of
Competency.
After obtaining the Deck Officer Class 3 Certificate of Competency, you will
progress to the rank of Third Officer and later to Second Officer. After passing
further examinations interspersed with specified periods of intervening sea
service, you will attain the rank of a Chief Officer, and finally that of a Captain,
in command of a ship.
In progressing from a Cadet to Captain you can expect to serve in each of
these capacities in turn. Promotion from one to the other will depend on the
Certificate of Competency you hold, the quality of your experience and, of
course, personal merit.
For the able young officer this system provides a smooth and rapid path of
career development. Even so, the process is likely to take less than eight years
from the commencement of cadetship till qualifying with Class I certificate,
and probably, half as long again before appointment as a Captain can be
expected.
A career in the Merchant Navy as a Deck Officer can be very rewarding, both
financially and in terms of job satisfaction.
CAREERS AFTER SEA
For those aspiring to step ashore after a career at sea as a Deck Officer,
future career paths include areas such as:
Government Surveyors of Ships
Cargo and Insurance Surveyors
Marine Superintendents of Shipping Companies
Pilots of Ships at ports
Dredging Master abroad Dredgers Lecturers in Maritime education

ELECTRO TECHNICAL OFFICER (ETO) COURSE
in collaboration with
Indian Institute of Technology, (IIT) Madras
The Centre of Continuing Education, INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY,
Chennai, has signed an agreement with the ACADEMY OF MARITIME
EDUCATION AND TRAINING (AMET), Chennai, to jointly conduct an
ELECTRO-TECHNICAL OFFICER (ETO) TRAINING PROGRAMME for retraining
Radio Officers of Merchant Navy Ships, whose jobs have become redundant
after the new Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) regulations
came into force on February 1, 1999. Under these regulations, Navigating
Officers who are trained in the Distress Alert and Search and Rescue aspects of
GMDSS will carry out all the related communication functions.
This is the first endeavor in the world, to retrain Radio Officers within a period
of 24 weeks and make them full-fledged Electro-Technical Officers, who are
able to discharge an enlarged scope of responsibilities on board Merchant
Navy Ships in a meaningful and productive manner.
This unique programme designed by experts in Shipping field, is a balanced
blend of theory, laboratory work and practical training. This course of study
covers Shipboard Electrical Power Systems. Control Systems and Automation,
Satellite Communication Systems, Marine Radar Systems etc. This course
will he handled by eminent faculty members of IIT Madras and experienced
specialists at AMET, drawn from the Shipping Industry. After completion of
the programme, Radio Officers, holding Certificate of Proficiency (First or
Second Class) will become Electro-Technical Officers.
The Electro-Technical Officers will eventually replace two categories of
Officers on board ships, namely, Radio Officers and Electrical Officers. On
successful completion of the course, an ETO Certificate will be jointly issued
by IIT Madras and AMET.
Eligibility
Preferably Radio Officers holding second class COP with about five years sea
service on board Merchant Navy Ships. Electrical Officers and B.E. (EEE or
ECE) are also eligible.
Duration
