CAREER GROWTH

Numerous doors open to those who train with us. Whether it is navigation, engineering or catering, specialisation in any of these areas is a promise for a stable and successful future.

INTRODUCTION

The training you receive at Mercmarine prepares you for a future of constant growth. Participants can choose to specialise in navigation, engineering or catering.

Those who enter the domain of navigation could become Captains with the right amount of experience and hard work. Similarly, those in the field of engineering will eventually reach the position of Chief engineer and participants who focus on catering rating can become experienced cooks or even chefs.

The most exciting prospect of studying at Mercmarine is its spirit of accommodation. Even if you have simply passed your  GCE O/Ls your  career prospects are bright. You can rise from deck rating, engine rating or catering rating and reach the top-most position in each of the fields.

Both career growth and job satisfaction are assured when you start your journey at Mercmarine Training.
