Merchant Navy as a Career Option

Merchant Navy is the backbone of international trade, carrying cargo across the globe. Without the merchant navy, much of the import-export business would grind to a halt. The Merchant Navy is operated by both public & private sector shipping companies. The merchant ships are maintained by experienced navigators crews and marine engineers. As the job involves travelling for considerably longer duration, the life of those who work in Merchant Navy is distinctly different from usual.

Merchant Navy is a non-combatant commercial fleet. This domain deals with ferrying a huge amount of goods, and occasionally, passengers, by sea. The major tasks are performed in three basic areas of a ship: the Deck, the Engine and the Service department. Merchant navy should not be confused with Indian Navy, which is tasked with defending the nation on the seas and oceans. Around 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping industry. There are over 50,000 merchant ships trading internationally, transporting every kind of cargo. The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations, and manned by over a million seafarers of virtually every nationality.
Without shipping the import and export of goods on the scale necessary for the modern world would not be possible. Seaborne trade continues to expand, bringing benefits for consumers across the world through competitive freight costs. It can also be termed as second line of defence. Thanks to the growing efficiency of shipping as a mode of transport and increased economic liberalisation, the prospects for the industry's further growth continue to be strong.

A career in merchant navy gives you an opportunity to travel around the world. A career at sea will make you stand in an excellent stead, no matter how quickly the world changes.

About IMI

International Maritime Institute

IMI is the realisation of collective dreams. In 1991, 12 eminent professionals from the maritime fraternity determined to pool together resources, expertise and long broad-based maritime experience to establish an institution in response to the severe manpower shortage facing the shipping industry worldwide. A training school for seagoing cadets was a long felt need in the north of India from where 60-70% of the seafaring manpower hails and IMI was born – a unique training institution geared to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Today's seafarer must be honed in his skills in an increasingly complex and commercial shipping environment. The IMO, ISO, ISM and STCW regulations underline quality training and certification of sea personnel for safer ships. The advent of shipboard automation, electronics and satellites has resulted in the demand for personnel of high caliber to man modern ships – a demand far outpacing supply. This makes the task of training institutions more exacting and precise.
IMI justifiably takes pride in its excellent reputation for quality training. Equipped with the latest shipboard working instrumentation and maritime teaching systems and a marine workshop, the institute maintains a close liaison with the maritime industry. It is an effort to respond readily to the industry's changing needs and demands, with courses being developed and upgraded constantly.
An excellent infrastructure for training facilities backed by a committed Management and Staff, and a serene ambience that offers the most conducive learning environment for Merchant navy personnel, make IMI a leading marine institution – at par with the best in the world.
What gives IMI cadets a decided edge over others is their high proficiency in English, good education and family background reinforced with uncompromising standards in disciplined training. In addition today ship-owners are on the lookout for smart, motivated boys able to work under every circumstance and to adapt to the harsh conditions at sea.

Merchant Navy

A career at sea is both arduous and rewarding. It offers a high level of job satisfaction; 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.
