Why Fake Job Agents and Scams Thrive in the Maritime Industry?
Last week we received a mail from a recently graduated marine engineer who became the latest victim of fraudulent job agents. The agent not only disappeared with a hefty sum of money but also wasted his one full year.
Unfortunately, the damage has already been done!
The engineer has almost given up on his dreams and is planning to seek an alternate career path. This was surely not what he expected at the end of his four years of hand work.
The worst feeling we got after reading his mail was that of “helplessness”.
Honestly, we did not know what to reply. We have received several such mails in the past, mostly from fresh graduates, who have already suffered or were fortunate enough to know about a fraud agent or agency before investing their money.
Every time we reply to such mails, we feel extremely disappointed. It’s a sad scenario out there, especially for young mariners. What is more sad to see is businesses thriving on their “misery”! There are several shipping agents and companies making good money out of this situation.
Later, while talking to the young engineer, we were shocked to find that he has received the reference of the agent from an online maritime website. On digging deeper, we found that there were dozens of such advertisements from fake job agents and profiles on the same website. It didn’t require much time to figure out that the website was over-flooding with such “scammy” advertisements and activities.
Although we were aware of such activities taking place in the maritime industry, we didn’t expect it from a website which was not only allowing such ads but also promoting them.
Several maritime jobs’ websites have cropped up online, especially in the last couple of years. Considering the financial woes of the maritime industry, it is difficult to comprehend from where do they get all the advertisements from.
We did a bit of research and found that many maritime jobs websites were doing the following:
- Providing online platforms to job agents without checking their credibility
- Selling personal details and resumes of candidates
- Not providing descriptions and addresses of the companies advertised
- Marketing scam job postings
Today, with a bit of knowledge it is easy for anyone to build a website and market fake jobs. Those doing this already know where to find the job-seekers online. If you are new to the online job search market it might be difficult for you to identify these fake advertisements at the first glance. Here are a few tips which might help you to identify such advertisements.
With the increasing menace of fake job agents and other malpractices, it was imperative for us to draw people’s awareness towards the issue. Social networking websites such as Facebook are brimming with such job scams. Fake profiles, fake contact numbers and fake addresses are some of the famous means for such fraudulent activities.
We also found that people involved in such malpractices also did the following things:
- Imposing themselves as agents by providing information about vacancies in a particular shipping company. ( This is usually done through some of their “inside” contacts)
- Faking themselves as company representatives and posting jobs on their behalf
- Charging huge amount in return of a job placements without providing proper information about the offer
- Providing job offers of merchant ships in the first place but instead they turn out to be small ferries or tugs when the candidate reaches there
There have also been cases in the past wherein agents have sent candidates to foreign countries for joining ships but kept their CDC and other important seafaring documents with themselves. They then made excuses that the documents were misplaced or lost. When the joining date of the candidate had passed, he was brought back to his home country saying that the ship has already sailed. Moreover, some agents have even failed to give back the documents to the candidates whereas others have given them back, but kept the fees received from the candidate stating that it was required to retrieve the lost documents.
There are many similar cases involving large sums of cases, broken dreams, and spoiled careers. Unfortunately, the number of such cases are rising with the increase in joblessness in the industry.
Are the Ship Management Companies Responsible?
Most ship management companies have a very transparent and professional hiring procedures for new candidates. However, there are a few who engage in malpractices, knowingly or unknowingly. Some of the common practices followed by these companies that have give rise to fake job agents are:
– It’s a common practice followed by many ship management companies to provide a joining date to a candidate prior to a month or two. As the date approaches and the candidate mentally prepares himself for the ship, the company says the joining has been delayed. In some cases, the delay seems like eternity to the candidates who are ready with their preparations and are just waiting for the company’s call. But then, the joining date would again get delayed by four to six months, and sometimes even a year. Needless to say, the candidate is extremely frustrated by now and has lost the trust in the company. He thus starts seeking other modes of placements such as job agents.
Ship management companies also sometimes give authorization to fleet managers/personnel for posting advertisements online or on maritime job websites. Some fleet personnel take this as an opportunity and post these requirements under fake names, providing their contact number or sell the information to an agent seeking a hefty commission in return. As the only aim for some companies is to bring in fresh candidates, irrespective of the ways in which they have been recruited, the hiring process becomes a lucrative business for a few involved in the process.
It is seen that most of the companies do not make extra efforts to check the background of the agents who are bringing in the candidates. Thus, many of them ask service charges from the candidates or get involved in some other malpractices.
Apart from the above mentioned ones, there are many more reasons as to why seafarers are not getting jobs.
Finding the Root Cause of the Problem
The job scam industry thrives and runs on a situation which is a product of several aspects. Though the prime reason can be stated as financial crises faced by the industry, there are many other reasons which can be stated as below:
- Fake promises and improper guidance to the maritime students at the start of their career
- Imbalance in demand and supply of mariners caused by increase in number of maritime academies and passing graduates and reducing number of jobs
- Shipping companies reducing their fleet and number of crew members per ship
- Lack of quality education and training. Maritime academies are churning out hundreds of marine engineers and deck officers, focusing on quantity instead of quality
While there is lack of jobs for young graduates in the industry, shipping companies are leaving no stones unturned to find qualified and experienced maritime professionals for higher ranks on ships. There is a dearth of management level mariners as many are leaving the field for better opportunities on shore. Both these types of conditions, though ironically opposite, are worsening day-by-day as there have been no concrete steps taken by the governing authorities to resolve these issues.
Until some major steps are taken by the government to rectify these proples, fake companies and agents will continue to exploit the professionals and tarnish the image of the maritime industry.

I completed my CDC from SSMA goa n after that I have been to mumbai at
Several occasions all this shipping companies say give your resume we will be back some just say we can’t give you the form n ask for references.. But guess wat nobody bothers to call lol.. But yes some of the agents I came across call very regularly giving feed backs n the pricelist for U.S bond ship its 2.8 lakh, for for other F.G ships its 2.3 lakhs n NCV 80 thousand …
Corruption at its best heights n in the most lucarative way…
No hard feelings some things dont change n corruption here is as hard n strong n rigid like a bulbous biw
In fact i have like 4 or 5 friends that have been scammed. I have been hired trhough a hiring agent and payed twice for the purpose but i make sure they send.me.the contract and airplane ticket first. And icontact ask if they are waiting for me and the airline to make sure its a true ticket then i send the money to the agent. Ive learned through my friends experience never to send money without being totaly sure. But jobs are.preety tough to find out there and as you say desperation makes you not think well which iw very sad for us seaferers
‘recently I met one prsn named basu he had a consultancy naming ultra marine consultancy and services in tankapani road, four square street, at bhubaneshwar, he intially took 10k from me 4 medical and charged 4200 for medical, and asked for another 40k and I paid said my company name as AHLER, again took 65K from my friend and said his company as evergreen, and after tym pass of 4 mons says pay 1lakh to another person and go, this is da situation plz save us fron fraud prsns lyk this when I asked 2 return money he asked regarding his service charge
Later I ‘ll post his numb and id
The situation is getting worsen. Even experienced maritime professionals are providing and referring new comers to agent. Thats the Sad part.
Im dng my final year engineering now! Few days back, in our college we had got a campus interview from a consultancy company named “alpha 9 Marine services”! The company gave all pros n cons about the merchant navy! And conducted a written test n personal interview. Later many students wer selected n were asked 2 attend medical test! They charged 3000rps for it. And now they are telling 2 pay 6,00,000rps for the pre-sea training n onboard training after which they will get us a job in a leading shipping companies! They said, 100% placements guaranteed. So many students in our college are under tension and doubt whether 2 trust this company or not. So plzzzzz do clarify us al about this company. Whether this s a true or fake company! If u do so, we all students will b very thankful 2 u as u would save the future of many youngsters who r willing 2 join merchant navy!
N these r details abt the company profile:-
” alpha 9 Marine services, B-707, Fairdeal House, Opp. St. Xavier’s Girls Hostel, Swastik Cross Roads, Navrangpura, Ahmedabad – 380009, GUJARAT, INDIA. Phone: 079 40034586 Mobile: 7874005400, 9825062876 Website: http://www.alpha9india.com Email: firstname.lastname@example.org“
Please note that we have never heard about this shipping company or service. I can bet you looking at the current job situation, even reputed colleges are not able to provide 100 % placements.
Few queries you can ask to the company:
– Where will be the training held?
– Is the Training D.G. Shipping approved (mandatory)?
– With which company they have a tie up (as they are claiming 100% placement)?
– In the current job situation (where fresh marine engineers and cadets are waiting for 1-2 years to get a ship) how they will manage to give placements?
Please note that in last 2-3 years, the Job frauds in maritime industry has increased drastically and many companies which claims to be authentic has fled with peoples money.
Feel free to contact us any time for any further query and you can also tell us what “Pros and Cons” they told you about the maritime industry.
In my Opinion- Do Not trust them until every details has been verified
Hope this helps.
I am freshly graduate marine engineer from Manet,Pune…This tym only 33 students out of 200 have got placed in my collage which is the worst placement record ever,I am unemployed but want to join only merchant navy…tell me some ways out to find job….i don’t want to become pray to agents.
yeah.. so many agents are waiting to making money from us. They are cheater’s but there speech is like a honey they give only False hopes , Don’t pay to them . I Graduated frm AMET chennai, five of my friends lost money abt 3lak around… they alredy took loan for their studies & now they lost tis huge money …. think about their parents,,,,.? their carrier,,,,? so if any agents call u … say …Piss off”
http://WWW.alpha9india.com can anybody help me out ,,
I just want to known that whether this is fake or real institute ( alpha 9 marine services)
Pls answer me
In today’s job market, If they are claiming 100% placement then you definitely need to do a thorough background check of the company. You need to ask – How and where will they provide jobs? Where they will train you etc. If some institute or company is being highlighted as their partner in training/placement , do call the institute and confirm with them. I am not saying not to rely on the presentation or career program, which seems quite secure, but no harm in doing a background check if your parents are spending hard earned money and you will be investing a significant amount of time at their institute.
We have received many queries from students like you and while replying to them, we have never asked them “not to join” but instead do a clear check on the company before making a final decision. Few days back, we receive a message on our FB page from one of the Alpha9 MArine service management team members-
Greetings from Alpha 9 Marine Services!
We have basically a company which promotes Merchant Navy career in India. And I have liked your page to get updated about marine industry. But I have seen many of the posts which are de motivating for a marine career aspirant. In fact I don’t remember any motivational posts on marine career. Why is that so ??
Just this is what I felt. Sorry if I am wrong.
This is What we Replied :
“Thank You for sharing your thoughts. In contrast of your message, we always try to “Warn” the maritime professionals and shipping fraternity through our safety and career related articles (we never demotivate them to join the industry). Precaution is better than cure and in shipping industry, it can be really hazardous to the careers. Please do check our career and safety related articles (which we post in the fb page) on the following links-
Please feel free to share your views. We always look forward to feedbacks and discussions.

We never received any reply till now.

can any one cnfirm about alpha9…
alpha9 came to our college …nd i got recuirted…I should belive and invest my 6 lakhs in alpha9 or not…plz get me a cnfirmation….waiting
Just check the above comment on alpha9. Why you guys are taking admission via a third party? Better directly go to a college as alpha9 is claiming they will place you in one of such colleges for training (correct me if I am wrong).
I wanted to know wheter tis alpha9 company is fake or not….
i ve been selected in alpha 9 marine services now dey re asking us to pay 30000 aftr completion want to pay 600000. pls suggest me s dis company s fake or true
can i know any other service company which can give 100 percent placements
sir i want join with merchant navy.i am in 12th standard. tell me is my decision right…and what should i do for sponsership for deck cadet. thank you
Few months before i had got an email from some Jone Cook of cunard cruise line.he had askd for our resumes.I thought it was not fake and went ahead with the process and sent my resume few days later i got an interview questionnaire, which made me think that this was all true but then somehow i found out that this was a scam. But just to see i sent the questionnaire after few days i got the appointment letter asking for the date to book the flight ticket to london.I know it is fake and I wanted all the mariners not to fall for such fake calls.
Sir Alpha 9 Marine Services came to our college for campus recruitment yesterday. they said we have to pay 30000 before they give us Offer letter from the company where we are placed. and we have to pay 6 lacks for a 4 month training (Pre sea) before getting on board ship training for 18 months where our stipend will be 25000-70000. and after completion of program the 18LPA is offered.
They said the offer letter will be given to us before the 4 month training, so we dont need to be tensed about placement as 18 LPA and the company where we’ll work on board after 4 months will be mentioned.
i just need to ask you whether to take it or not as many people on this blog have asked about this company. and the company was opened in 2012. so should i trust it or not.
This institute Global Pacific Shipping & Marine services in New Delhi……….is it genuine or fake?
Please do check above comment on similar topic.
Pls guys go to the dgshippin.com and check the details of courses for merchant navy…if u are from electrical,ec,automobile or mechanical brancha then go to the ignue site and give there exam….after that u can join merchant navy,..there are so many fraud companies like alpha9,phoenix..thepse are fraud companies…so pls check dgshipping site.
Just saw your detailed article about fake agencies operating in this industry. Thank you for sharing the detailed and enlightening information. You have really well studied about the agencies and their operations which are fake.
Now, if you can name some agencies which are real and who deliver as per their promises. Or if there is no role of an agent in this business, then tell me in detail about how can a B Tech (Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics & Communication, Electronics & Instrumentation, Automobile etc.) join Merchant Navy ?
You can definitely suggest us some names of Shipping or RPSL companies whom this people can contact directly for sponsorship without paying any premium OR suggest some academies where anybody can get admission with guaranteed sponsorship from the company again without paying any premium charges for the same.
We would be thankful to you if you can share this information.
hay i want to know the same about alpha9 marine. the HR told us that it is dgshippi approved but its a training institute so what will be the reason that he told us that before paying 600000 we get the offer latter.
There are many colleges and companies who are willing to admit mechanical, electrical engineers in marine engineering courses under the guidelines of DG shipping. Manet, TOLANI, AMET, GEMA, AEMT, Cochin shipyard etc. are few of them.
Answering your second Part of the question, I will not use the term “premium” charges rather call it illegal service charges which unapproved agents and even some small ship management companies are taking from the fresh seafarers. (We advice all the aspirants to avoid any agency, company or 3rd party which are not approved by DG shipping) The Crew Branch Circular 2 dated-08th May, 2007 under the headline -“Employment on board Merchant Navy ships only through DGS approved Recruitment and Placement Service providers” says:
As per Merchant Shipping Act, 1958, the Central Government has made rules called the Merchant Shipping (Recruitment and Placement of Seafarers) Rules, 2005 with a view to provide a mechanism of protection for Indian seafarers working on Indian and Foreign Flag vessels. These Rules provide necessary safeguards for repatriation of Indian seafarers in the event of their being stranded or during such other exigencies, when the ship owner fails to discharge the duty of repatriating the seafarers to the home port of the seaman. Further, these rules authorize the Seamen’s Employment Offices, with the permission of this Directorate, to issue licence, to regulate and control the recruitment and placement services of seafarers. These rules also intend to protect Indian seafarers from the failure of these recruitment agencies in meeting their obligations and to ensure that no fees or other charges for recruitment or placement of seafarers are borne directly or indirectly or in whole or in part by the seafarers.
“No Need To Worry”!!!! Please be worried as you are investing a big amount and you are not even sure of this decision.
Fact 1: I have been sailing since last seven years and no company pays you 18LPA working only after 4 months. Thats a big lie or they forgot to mention the duration it will take to earn this big chunk.Also you need to get placed in a foreign going ship with minimum tonnage and power requirement as per DG shipping to draw such handsome future salary.
After the completion of an APPROVED Course and Training (you need to make sure the institute is approved by DG shipping else all efforts are worthless) you will be placed as trainee engineer and as per the current job scenario you will be getting a stipend of 300-600 USD. You need to sail for at least 6 month to become eligible for giving MEO CL IV exam. After passing the examination (which will at least take 6 to 12 months), you will be posted as 4ht engineer on a ship and you will earn around 1600- 2600 USD depending upon the company. You must sail for at least 12 months to become eligible for MEO CL2 exam which takes at least 12 to 24 month to clear. Once you clear MEO CL2, you can sail as 2nd engineer and earn aroung 5000-8000 USD again depending upon the ship type and company. To get the mentioned 18L package ,you need to be a 2nd engineer onboard FG ship. Hope this clears the situation.
Please trust your senses and do a background check of the company. We are not saying this company is a fraud rather we want you to be more careful as this decision can make or break your career.
Feel free to ask all your doubts and do read other comments in this article for your reference.

Have you or anyone heard of RAK Training Ship (RTS) Sindbad based in UAE ? Is it a legitimate training school ?
im on board coastal ship what i hve repuire for indian engine watchkeping exp 6 and half month . And where to get tar book
alpha marine services is indeed a big scam , why not these people cannot understand it is fraud and i personally feel there is no harm in saying the truth instead of asking them to do back ground check and stuff. it is clearly a big fraud and no one complained about it and the college allowed the cheaters to interact with students, only india such things can happen people approve them self to get cheated and scammed . dont pay just simple as that and 18 lpa is a bigger bullshit so dont not join i think i am late but when ever such discussions raise in future this should help if anybody is asking you to pay move away . dont bribe but it is hard for indians to get accustomed to be honest. but please try jai hind
I am 24 yrs old.i have completed my btech in electronics in college which is AICTE approved .I am willing to join merchant navy as there is lot more to learn and earn as well.Besides btech in etx l have also completed diploma in electronics after 12(pcm-80%) have good marks in english 10+12.
So my question to all mariners in marine insight is,
Should i really go for it..?
Am i eligible to merchant navy as an officer in engine cadet..?
whom should i approach without falling prey to fraud agents?
Most eagerly awaited for your sensible reply,
The first thing I can say looking at the comments of candidates that they need to learn How to TYPE IN PROPER ENGLISH.
Companies don’t want illiterate or semi-literate employees, even at the lowest level. And let’s face it, a seafarering career is still regarded as a good launch pad.
Don’t screw it up by being too lazy to type like an educated person, instead of a three-year old mashing the keyboard.
Some of the comments-
“and after tym pass of 4 mons” No.
“They are cheater’s but there speech is like a honey they give only False hopes” No.
Referencing comments from another article here, but come on, language like this and you expect people to employ you?
“sir wat u hv said here s d real truth … nd m too facing the same prblm … hv dne pre sea training abt 8 months ago .. and still nt placed anywhr yet … as u said institution hd promisd 100 % placment wen v joind thr .. bt nw they dnt shwng any interest to plc us ” Hell no.
If you want people to take you seriously, start acting mature. You’re not kids anymore, don’t write like them. For shame.
hi I am a deck cadet still struggling to get a job !
I was in mumbai for a year I have gone to all the companies with my resume but the reply was pay me in lakhs and you will be flying the following day ! street agents specially fraud with fresh cadets ! but companies like univan and Oriental shipping offices asking for 5 lakhs with some fake exam shows the administrative working in the shipping industry . government should impose some regulation on these companies through cancelling. there licenses . even rpsl registered companies asking for 3 lakhs to give placement . a pillar cannot survive without trust and truth honesty and shipping industry is lacking that ! hope some solution will be found for these problems in future .
Thank you sir for your help.One more request sir, can you please send me the list of DG approved shipping companies of india.

Alpha9 Marine services came in our college on 17th September 2014 and recruited some of the students from our college.( Proudhadevaraya Institute of Technology, HOSPET). Sir i Want some more Information about them. Please help me if you can? Is that an genuine company or not? And sir Have found many of your reply :Mr Anish” saying that its a fake company.Sir I want to Inform Each and Every Students that they have opened one more fraud company on the name of ” SacRos Marine Manning Pvt Ltd” which I Have found online while browsing internet. Both the address of Alpha9 Marine Services and SacRos Marine Manning Pvt Ltd are same, They are planning to cheat more people by using differnt name of the company and doing cheating with innocent people. SO PLEASE BE AWARE
@ Rishi: Why don’t you directly approach the college instead of another company playing as a mediator (they will charge for their service from you and not from the DG approved college). During the time of placement, their are chances of college and the 3rd party blaming each other for responsibility of placement and you will suffer in the process.
Sir please help me by knowing that west line shipping management pvt ltd in ahmedabad is fake or genuine
I’m from tamilnadu… West line ship management s company r agency….? Any senior students from west line were placed r not..? How s west line…? Plz reply frndz
Sir can u plz tell me about Aurum shipping management
Hello sir. Yesterday we had a presentation for campus placement on “join merchant navy” by
SacRos Marine Manning Pvt. Ltd.
B-901, 9th Floor, Fairdeal House,
Near Swastik Cross Roads,
Opp. St. Xaviers Ladies Hostel,
Ahmedabad – 380009.
They have asked for 6 lac fees for training. Sir can you give any guidance about it..? As this agency is just 3-4 months old. So please reply soon.
I am madhav sai. I have done b.tech in mechanical engineering. I am very much interested in merchant navy. In that way for GME sponsorship i have applied for cruiselineshipping management pvt.ltd.
and they have called me for interview. Can any one tell me is that fake company or a good one.
@ Darshan: If you are interested in joining merchant navy, better to approach a reputed college. It is not advisable to join this field with the help of a 3rd party which is not approved by DG shipping.
This is Vikrant From kolkata.
I have applied for Springdale Maritime Academy (SAMET) in Bhugneshwar. I have been selected for Deck Cadet course under UK (Liverpool John Moores University) system.

Alpha9 Marine services from ahmedabad conducted a test and personal interview and they selected students from our institute and I’m one of them. They called us for medical test with documents(mainly mark sheets) with charge of 3000rs. after clearing that medical test, sometime after we’r informed to submit DD of 25,000rs. as a deposit or for assurance of joining. Then they posted us a job offer letter, it mentions that we have to pay 6lakh. Rs. for pre-sea training and on-ship training. They haven’t mentioned any name of academy or company yet, reason given was due to some privacy problem. Company told us to come with us while joining institute after completion of our degree.
Please, help us;
1)whether we should proceed further of not?
2)Is this company is fake or real?
3)We don’t know how to contact and whom to contact directly for admission in DG-shipping approved institute directly.

Hi , Can u please tell me about GLOBAL PACIFIC & MARITIME SERVICE ..is fraud instiute or not..reply
There is this company SeaSpan. This is one of the most corrupt companies in India. They hire people through agent. Agents charges multiple lakh rupees and there is heft commission of SeaSpan HR department in this. And then there is high chance of SeaSpan rejecting you in their so called formal interview. Beware!
Many sponsoring Ship companies ask cadets to sign bond worth 4-5 lakh rupees. And then they don’t provide joining date for ages. Is candidate still obliged to offer bond and not look for job elsewhere? What if someone joins other ship? How strong is the legal case when BOND is not followed?
Please do refer the above link for more information on d.g approved marine institutes. Never ever join any other institute to secure your career in merchant navy.
Certain mushroom centres in nadia district of west bengal is claiming to give job in merchant navy in various cargo ships & also in dockyard.Have to have a training. for 45 days in which company will pay the stipend amount of 15000-17000.Not a single penny from the pocket of Candidate.
Only Candidate WILL HAVE TO FILLUP A FORM WITH Rs200 from these mushroom centres after which they will get placed the candidate in the aforesaid company.
Is it a fraud trap or it is ok.Can it be trusLtable.
Please let me know.
Never heard something like this….looks dicy. Please collect more information regarding the same before joining such institutions.

I have gone through all the comments about West Line Ship Management Pvt. Ltd., and still confused whether it is trust worthy or not. I am a final year B. Tech student from VIT University, Vellore. The company visited our college on 1st April, 2016. They took written test and followed by interview (though i hardly believe they would have checked papers). Since I gave both and got selected as well. I have given lot of company exams and interviews and what I feel about this company was like they were just doing formality for test and interview. Interviewing 4 students at a time. Asking questions about states and capitals of India, names of PM and CMs, etc. This shows that either the company desperately need employees or they are just trying to cheat us. They have selected 65 students from our college. All have got their offer letter. Now we have to go to their head office in Ahmedabad for medical check up and to receive final appointment letter (on a 100 Rs. stamp paper) with a sum of 30,000 rs. advance fee and 3000 rs. for medical check up.
I searched about the company. It was established in 2005 but started their shipping business in 2014. The company do not hold RPSL no. I called to the no. provided by company in my offer letter to inquire about the RPSL no., they told me that they had already applied for the same and will get RPSL no. within 1 month.
Based on all the reviews and comments, I am still in dilemma. Need some more suggestions. Please suggest what would be the best option for me, whether to join the company or not.

We do not have any review of this company. Please check one of the above comments as someone shared a bad experience with this institute. 18 month training cannot be done at a stretch and need to be done in two contracts hence they need to place you onboard in two ships.

I m selected in dgn maritime academy …guys will u plzz help me is this academy right or fake ..??? Guys plzz help me …
Is this a fake academy ..they are saying for 100% placement..
They provide Honduras CDC (low value amongst other CDCs), It is not authorised by DG shipping INDIA. In future, you cannot approach DG shipping in case of any problem or issue. It is approved by JAS-ANZ. 100% placement is a big commitment- Please ensure they do it on a paper with time duration of providing you the placement. Various cases has been noted that institutes are providing 100% Job guarantee but not mentioning the time period to oblige that (candidates have to wait for years after passing out) and no mention on type of ship in which the training will be provided, as it is very important to decide the future course and exam eligibilities.
For any further query, please post your questions in our forums: https://forums.marineinsight.com

Dear Sir, On the look out for my son’s career opportunities after class 12 I had asked him to sit for CET 2017 through IMU. As he got around 700 rank, & I was guided through someone to apply for SCI_MTI conducted Diploma in Nautical Science leading to Bsc in Nautical Science under Shipping Corporation of India. I need you guidance about this career as I am told that SCI trains the candidates & provide career opportunity in SCI in Merchant Navy. The course demands initially around Rs. 3.5 toRs. 4 lac for 1st year training either at Tuticorin or Mumbai SCI Marine Training Institute. After 1 year they are required for 18 months on the ship training under stipend scheme & then after completion of 3 to 3.5 years he will have to sit on exams to clear. Please guide / review this career & should we opt for SCI-MTI option for training & career. Also guide whether one should go for Marine Engineering in IMU run college at Kolkata, chennai Mumbai or Bsc NS through SCI_MTi as career prospect . Need your guidence at the earliest since have to take decision also because a substantial amount has to be deposited.

My complaint is against alpha 9 marine services https://marine.alpha9india.com
Roshan Govindanme and my friends are the victims of him
He came to our college saying that he’s a agent who will place us in reputed companies like Maersk great Easter etc
And demanded 6 lakh from us
Promising your salary will be around 18 lakh a year
At the time we didn’t know much about the field, as he had come to our engineering college we thought he was genuine and gave him the money . I did ETO course as I am electronics background in engineering
We paid him the money and were waiting for the job he kept on saying 5-10 days you will be in ship..
This went on for 6-7 months ..
Later he gave a 2000 get ship in which he promised I would be working as a trainee ETO I’ll be having senior ETO to train me..
When I reached ship I was devastated.
He had sent me to Dubai as a wiper not as a ETO ..
With great difficulty I came out of there..
And asked for the refund
Now he’s not giving the money back..
He did same with my friends….
I have all the proofs to show him as a fraud
Can you suggest what I can do about this..
It’s a matter of my and my friends carrier
