Training for Ratings

Hands on Training for Ratings

Background: Although Indian Ratings have been employed on board vessels for over a century, due to renewed competition form labour supplying countries, it was felt that there is an urgent need for retraining and further enhancing the hard skills of deck and engine ratings.

Process: Fosma Maritime Institute and Research Organisation developed a hands on training course for deck and engine ratings which is carried out at the Don Bosco Maritime Academy. The feedback received from owners and shipmanagers is extremely positive and it is now 5 years since the course is being run continuously.

The training fees is absorbed by FMIRO. The member companies nor the trainee contribute towards the training.
