Planning to join merchant navy?
Merchant navy is a unique career choice, but then there are certain things that you should consider before making it your career. The list of why merchant marine is a very good career option (or not so good one), is very long but with proper guide, knowing why to opt for marine careers and what to look out for before joining the merchant navy will become genuinely easy.

A maritime weblog like Marine and offshore Insight team been a collective maritime professionals, do provide more guides which will enable you understand how to get onboard.

To get offshore Job in Nigeria and foreign going vessels is simple if you really know where to search for it.

A forum like Nairaland is a place where people gain ideas or linked up to what may benefit their career, dreams, etc. If you have questions, feel free to ask on this thread or visit articles on marine guide blog to earn more ideas.

I hope this help someone.

To become Ordinary seaman (OS) , Able seaman (AB) or Motorman/Oiler onboard ship, you have to pass through these steps:

Take a Training Course
The first thing that you need to do is to have a maritime training in Nigeria or any country. Take the basic seaman training course known as BST and get a certification. The training includes; Sea Survival Techniques, Personal Safety and Social Responsibility, First Aid, Fire Fighting and Fire Prevention.

Get the seaman requirements
After passing the training, you need to have the following in order for you to be employed.

BST Certificate – You can get it in your training school.

Seaman’s Book – This document serves as your passport in this industry. if you need assistance, also send email or call.

Passport – This is a common identification card in any country. This is used to enable aspiring seaman and other professionals to work onbroad ship. 

Apply to Manning and Shipping Agencies
Once everything is settled, it’s time to get employed. There are many employers and agencies out there but make sure you’ll get to a legitimate one. you can also check on marine and offshore insight for list of accredited and licensed agencies to avoid scams and fraud.

Learn Something New
If you want to always have a new knowledge in the industry, enroll in more maritime training programs. If you have a wide range of capabilities and education, there is a huge possibility to be promoted and rank on a high maritime position.

or send a mail for assistance, if wish to take maritime course outside the country.
