There are many courses in Merchant Navy offered by various marine academies such as B.Sc. Nautical Science, Higher National Diploma (HND) in Nautical Science, Pre Sea Training for Deck Cadets, etc., depending on your area of expertise.




    • You should be pass 10+2 or an equivalent examination with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. You should also pass a medical fitness test for sea service under standard norms and with eyesight 6/6 with no color blindness.
