Learn your job, be a good shipmate & stay happy – Chief Surveyor tells cadets


Underlying the importance of good training for sea-going professionals in their respective training institutes, Mr. Amitava Banerjee, Chief Surveyor with the GoI, Directorate General of Shipping, has urged the cadets to learn their job onboard a ship and be a good shipmate.

Addressing a gathering of students and guests during the passing out ceremony of first batch of Diploma Mechanical Engineers (DME) and third batch of Graduate Mechanical Engineers (GME) at Hindustan Institute of Maritime Training (HIMT), he said: “You (passing out cadets) have been given loads of information, long hours of training, so many experiences and faculty members teaching you day in and day out on what is to be required onboard a ship.
Exhorting the cadets to understand the intricacies before going onboard a ship for job, Mr. Banerjee stated: “You (cadets) are required to know all the systems that would be onboard. Unless you  are able to impress your seniors, which is not possible unless you know your job onboard, you will not be of any help to the people onboard the ship, and unless you are of some help onboard ship, you will not be in a position to remain happy.”

“Therefore, I exhort you that please see to it that you learn your job (onboard a ship). Be a good shipmate and stay happy,” Mr. Banerjee advised the passing out cadets.
Touching upon the rights of seafarers onboard, he added: “You have certain basic rights onboard and those are to be maintained. Once those rights are maintained, there is no problem.”
Earlier, Mr. Banerjee formally inaugurated the Ship-in-Campus – T S Madhurika and congratulated the efforts of HIMT for inculcating quality maritime education and training to its students.
In his welcome address, Mr Sanjeev S.Vakil, Managing Director, HIMT, lauded the efforts of Mr. Banerjee in focusing on quality (maritime) education and training that ultimately help the cadets to suit into their jobs onboard a ship.
Mr. Vakil pointed out: “The most important thing, which is going to bring revolution in training, is the Comprehensive Inspection Programme (CIP), framed in the interest of seafarers, Maritime Training Institutes (MTIs) and shipping companies. It is three-in-one approach comprising scheduled inspection by Academic Council, Quality Management System (QMS) audit by a certifying body and rating assessment by credit and debit rating agencies and I think the order (by DG Shipping) is going to ease out many things.”
Besides others, Mr. V. Ganapathi Rao, Vice-President (Technical), Goodearth Maritime Pvt Ltd., attended the ceremony.
