Training Circular No. 4 of 2005

No:11-TR(38)/2004                                                                                             Dated: January 1, 2005

Subject: Guidelines - Degree Courses for Deck Cadets

Maritime safety and efficiency is of utmost concern to the Directorate General of Shipping (DGS), the constituted authority of the Government of India for all maritime affairs.

It was noticed that some training institutes barely met the minimum standards set by the Directorate, while others provided training facilities that were world class. In order to bring about uniformity of training, amenities and equipment provided by all training institutes the guidelines were revised and new ones formulated. This was done by the DGS in consultation with the training institutes and employers (shipowners and manning agencies). Draft guidelines were displayed on the website of the DGS and comments invited from interested parties, regardless of the position or office held. Comments received were considered to the earliest possible.

The final guidelines for Course is attached herewith. In keeping with Government policy, the guidelines have been made in as transparent manner as practicable.

It is expected that training institute would follow these guidelines in letter and spirit.

The above guidelines shall come into force w.e.f. 01.01.2005.

This issues with the approval of the Director General of Shipping and ex-officio Addl. Secretary to the Government of India.

DEGREE COURSES FOR DECK CADETS

  1. PREAMBLE
  2. Safety and efficiency of ships are dependent upon the professional competence and dedication to duty, of the seafarers on board them. Hence maritime education and training, and within that, pre-sea training, is of vital importance. With this in mind, the course of training in India is compulsorily residential with workshop training, boatwork, computer operation, team games, swimming, physical training, parade and a host of other extra-curricular activities. Students successfully completing this course should have the required standard of knowledge, communication skills, competence, cheerful obedience to orders of superiors, team spirit, leadership and other seaman-like qualities. All institutes that conduct, or intend to conduct degree courses for deck cadets should follow these guidelines in letter and spirit
