  • Hi guys, I am zunnoonpatel from india,

  • studying marine engineering, greetings to all the sailors

  • around the world!

  • Hey guys Jeff here, welcome back and let's do a top 6 questions about Merchant Marine

  • These questions I get asked a lot today I am going give more context from an

  • insider point of view.

  • First up, how much do mariners get paid I get asked a lot how much do I get paid

  • It really depends on what type of ship you are on , your company and a lot of variables

  • Some of my coworkers have been working in the industry for 30 years so I've had the chance

  • to compare what other companies are offering I will give u a range

  • All units are in U.S. Dollars **per month

  • Third mate / Third engineer anywhere from

  • $3000 to $7500 Second mate / engineer

  • $3500 to $8500

  • Chief mate/ first engineer $4000 to $10,000 And lastly

  • Captain / Chief Engineer anywhere from $5000 to $15000

  • You are probably wondering nowwow Jeff whats with the big range

  • Here are some variables Specialized ship such as LNG and LPG they

  • get paid the highest Containerships, the type that I worked on

  • is also in the higher range General rule, the larger ships the better

  • the pay Because more work

  • Bigger company also offers more competitive salary

  • Nationality, yes your nationality and the ship's nationality aka Ship's flag does

  • matter There are same ranking officers working on

  • the same ship earning different salary because of different nationality

  • Second question how do I to get started in this industry?

  • The bare minimum requirement that everyone needs to work on a ship

  • are the five certificates from STCW

  • STCW stands for International convention on the Standards of Training, Certification and

  • watch keeping for seafarers. Five certificate are : First aid, personal

  • survival, Personal safety and social responsibilities ,firefighting, and Security

  • Different countries have slightly different names, but if you want to find out just look

  • STCW Google or Wikipedia

  • Then in order to be more specific in your

  • position, let's say an engineer, you need a certificate of competency in marine engineering

  • For deck side it'll be a certificate of competency for deck watch keepers

  • Maritime is much like airlines, we have to go through a specialized training school then

  • accumulate sea time, finally examination for license

  • You need to research whether it will fit you, such as the cost, how long it takes, and the

  • location The reason why I say location is because for

  • some countries it takes longer For example myself, instead of studying maritime

  • locally in Canada, I chose to travel to Australia, because it takes 1.5 years less

  • Plus I get to go to a new country while I study

  • So do your research and weigh your options

  • Ok third question Can I get into your company

  • / how do I get into a company Ok... for my company I don't have the power

  • or influence to help anyone because I am only a Third Mate

  • You'd have to be a captain to recommend someone.

  • Sorry guys I am unable to help you That aside, here are some advice on how to

  • get hired into a shipping company. Most shipping company does sponsorship, for

  • example on the Canadian shipping lines website you can see sponsorship under their career

  • section. So go on google and Wikipedia, find all the shipping lines you can find

  • And start sending out resume Keep in mind

  • When you are a cadet you can't be too picky especially in today's economy

  • you don't choose the company The Companies choose you

  • Shipping companies hire in batches so whenever u hand in a resume, it goes into a waiting

  • pile Sometimes it doesn't even get looked at

  • A good strategy for that is to keep sending your resume every month until you get declined

  • You just have to be persistent

  • Pirates! Let's just say Captain Philips happened 7 years ago back in 2009

  • Since the high profile incidents that brought this issue into international spot light

  • Countries from around the world have been tackling piracy by sending out navy patrols

  • into these high risk areas Most ships also hire security guards

  • for protection They come on with these big sniper rifles

  • Piracy is actually decreasing by the numbers The media tends to dramatize things especially

  • with the movies, TV news

  • Then comes the fifth one is it safe on the ship?

  • Talk about fire, first aid, and maybe accidents All international ships are fully equipped

  • to fight fire Not to mention we have firefighting systems

  • in place for almost anywhere on the ship Lifeboat life-raft life-jacket are all double

  • capacity We have food water and rations that can last

  • us for months Global satellite distress systems that can

  • track us real time For medical we have a hospital onboard

  • All crew are trained in first aid, from the cook to the captain

  • For more serious conditions, a helicopter can be sent from land and pick up and injured crew

  • Systematic safety systems and checklist that

  • are in place for majority of the task we do So it is very safe to work on a ship, accidents

  • and incidents that you see on the news are only a small portion of the maritime world

  • Most people sail for their entire life without seeing an emergency

  • Last one is internet Yes, nowdays majority of the modern ships

  • have satellite internet Most if not all are throttled and have a firewall

  • to block image or videos so that the bandwidth is not spent too quickly

  • The best available would be cruise ships, I was onVoyager of the Seas” a few months

  • back and they offer a 10 USD unlimited internet daily…. which is pricy and very very slow,

  • don't even think about uploading or downloading anything. I was barely able to get 360p on

  • Youtube Bottom line is, if you plan to work in maritime,

  • be prepared to have less internet

  • A…*yawn* thank you guys forrrrr

  • Thank you guys for watching as always if you got a question leave it down in the comments

  • below Be sure to add and send me a greetings on

  • Instagram so that I can use in the next video if you want to be featured

  • I will see you guys next time!
