ENGINE CADET TRAINING PROGRAMME
The "ENGINE CADET TRAINING PROGRAMME" meets the requirements of IMO Standards of Training and Certification for Watch-keepers STCW'2010 . The program consists of class room lectures, Practical Workshop /Lab training, Educational Tours in shipyards, Drydocks and Oceangoing ships, discussions and inclusive of the requirements as outlined in the IMO model course 7.04 to prepare the certification of Engineering officers in charge of an watch.
This training is intended to meet the requirements set out in Table A-III/1 of the STCW Code of STCW'2010. To make a student capable of gaining minimum standard of competence as follows :
a) To become an officer in charge of Engineering watch in a manned engine room or designated duty engineer in a periodically unmanned engine room.
b) To have sufficient knowledge of electrical, electronic and control engineering at the operational level.
c) To gain proficiency on maintenance and repair at the operational level.
a) The objective is to educate, train and assess the cadets, following the requirement of Section A-I / 6 STCW Code.
b) To ensure that on successful completion of the course, the cadets will have appropriate knowledge, understanding and proficiency to do watch keeping in engine room and to operate a ship's engine and other machineries.
c) To achieve minimum academic and professional standards that enables the cadets to appear in examinations of Class III (Engine) Certificate of Competency (CoC), after completion of required sea-time and preparatory courses.
d) To explore and recognize the potential seafaring talents, suitably train them and develop officer-like qualities in them so as to groom them up as future leaders in related fields, especially in the field of International shipping.
e) To give such co-curricular, extra-curricular and disciplinary training which will enable a cadet to take a place of a Merchant Marine Engineer and face the challenging career at sea with courage, endurance and fortitude.
f) To develop loyalty to national and international shipping industry, devotion to profession and sense of responsibility in cadets, through continuous guidance and supervision.
