Indians have always had a special place in the global shipping community. However, with the imposition of more stringent international standards, the profession of seafaring now demands exacting standards. But once these standards have been met, an aspiring trainee is launched into a career, where he enjoys a handsome salary and superior living standards, not to mention the additional perks of being able to travel around the world. The competition has increased, but very few institutions have been able to raise themselves, to the high standards required in training the workforce. 

Commander Ali's Academy of Merchant Navy has grown in strength since its inception, and today rides a wave of success due to its discipline and dedication in providing the most up-to-date and comprehensive training, keeping in step with the ever-changing syllabi and methodology of imparting marine education, which has been constantly evolving due to advancements in technology and human resource management. Here is the training highlight offered at CAAMN.

Pre Sea Training

Pre-Sea Training, as the phrase itself implies, is the compulsory phase of instruction imparted to every trainee before he/she gets on board a ship for further training. Pre-Sea Training course is a comprehensive program of nautical and marine engineering education that provides trainee deck officers, Marine engineer officers, and ratings with the academic and practical training needed to progress from Junior Navigating Officer to Ship Master and trainee Marine engineer to Chief Engineer. The primary objective of this form of training is to impart the necessary discipline and knowledge about seamanship, navigation, engine room, etc. to the young trainees. 

The course schedule is rigorous and prepares every trainee for life onboard a ship. Apart from Imparting awareness about a wide range of shipping subjects the course also aims at instilling confidence and inculcating a sense of responsibility in the trainees. The course is so planned that at the end of the training when the trainees board a ship, they will feel totally at home with activities and duties entrusted to them. In short, Pre-Sea Training is designed to make the trainee mentally, physically, and intellectually fit for life at sea. Strict discipline is maintained in the Academy, which is run along lines of various defense training institutions and Naval Training Ships.
