    To join this field first of all it is a must that the candidate be from the science background. The science subjects include Physics and Chemistry. Also Mathematics is also compulsory. Thereafter the candidate will need to pursue the three year marine engineering course. Another option available is to pursue this field after completion of B.Tech. In case of candidates who have pursued marine engineering they can directly join this field. Another option is to join directly after 12th standard. Thereafter undergo a 3year training. There will also be a pre-sea training which the candidates need to clear before joining any shipping firm.

    Hey,
    In the above answers it states that we have an option to join directly after 12th standard. Thereafter undergo a 3year training. Could you kindly provide information as to what that training would involve. Also, what happens in situations where its been a while since one has completed her 12th 3-4 yrs back in the PCMB line and hasn't studied further since then ??
