    Re: How to join merchant navy after B.Tech?

    Since you are already a B.Tech you are eligible to join this stream. But since you are not from the marine engineering stream you will need to go through the one year of pre sea training. Also you have more than the minimum of 50% marks which is the minimum requirement. You need to select the institute from which you plan to do the course. You will need to appear for an entrance exam for joining that institute. On clearing the test you will need to appear for an interview round. Only on clearing this will you be able to join the institute for training. But before that you will also need to undergo a physical fitness test. There will be a thorough check up as it is a must in this field. After training you can choose which company you would like to work for.

As you are have B.Tech you need to undergo a 1 year pre-sea training course. Candidates can pursue a career as an officer ranking and in the Nautical.

    dear friend
    since you are from the Btec field you eligible to joing in the merchant navy , i think you have to go for a one year training in the marine field if you are selected , there will be a tough entrance exam , you should pass this exam to get an admission in the merchant ,so you have to prepare very well to appear for the exam ,..............
