Each department of workshop and laboratories , has fully qualified and experienced Training Instructors and Assessors.
Practical training is also provided in the workshops and yards of Goa Shipyard Ltd., Western India Shipyard Ltd.and Marine Electrical Agencies. Afloat training is provided on ships under construction or repairs at these yards, and also on transhippers M.V. Marathadeep, M.V. Priyamvada and M.V. Orissa, in Mormugao Harbour. Training on Transhippers is a unique feature of the training.
The transhippers are available to the trainees all the time as their movement is restricted within Port area. The transhippers are basically sea going ships fitted with special cargo handling equipment to transfer iron ore from barges into large bulk carriers, anchored outside the break waters in deep waters. These are fully functional and operational ships. These ships carry all the normal certificates as required under MS act for large vessels, and are subject to all the surveys by MMD and Classification Societies.
The trainees actually get to carry out maintenance routine on Main Engine, Generators and all other auxiliary machinery. By the end of their training, they are fully familiar with all the operating systems in the Engine room, overhauling of generators, pumps, compressors, purifiers etc. and are capable of performing these jobs. They trace the pipe lines and become familiar with all the ship’s systems.
