Merchant navy is One of Many Ancient job sectors , trading more than 95% percent of world trade , Trading helps to Grow economy of any Nation . This is the one of the reasons which made USA superior during world war….
There are tonnes of ship in open sea , which Requires Officers and Crew on Board , So there is always demand of merchant navy officers and other crew members……although companies Like Rolls-Royce have started working on fully automated ships which requires no crew members on board !! But that's going to take a lot of years…
It's a big misconception that merchant navy pays high salary for every rank instead high salary is for officer ranks like Navigation officers, Marine engineers and ETOs .
And obviously merchant navy has a lot of scope for next thousand years ……..
But never do merchant courses from any fraud or unrecognized institutes which isn't DG approved by Directorate General of shipping, also see the placement records for last couple of years……i have seen some people destroying there life's by joining unrecognized colleges which made them wait for 2- 4 years and haven't placed them anywhere…..Please beaware , as this field is full of scammers , making fake promises…….
Study hard , all the best for you career ahead 👍
