    Re: Am I eligible to give Chief mate exam from India?

    dear friend,

    Chief Mate is a licensed associate and leader of the deck department of the Merchant Navy. Chief Mate, otherwise called Chief Officer is ranked just below the Captain of a ship. Deck cadets can turn out to be Chief mates with experience and by attending certain examinations. It is the prime responsibility of a Chief mate to work as a watch stander and to be in charge of the ship’s deck crew and freight. He is responsible to the Captain of the ship for safeguarding the vessel.
    Qualifying Exam
    To become a Chief Mate, aspirants have to primarily begin as a Deck Cadet. Through years of experience and clearing various levels of exams, these professionals can turn out to be Chief Officers. There are mainly 2 stages that they need to complete so as to become a Chief Mate. They are the Third mate and the Second mate. In the process, they have to clear certain tests. Third mates, who have one year experience can apply for the second mate test. Being a second mate, they have to complete another 365 days of experience to apply for the first mate’s exam. In addition, they have to work as a Watch stander for at least 3 months while working as a Second Mate. The First Mate’s exam comprises of mainly four parts – 2 written tests, an oral test and a signal test. The written test comprises of questions on Radio and Electronics, Safety, cargo work and Ship maintenance, Chart work and Practical Navigation. To apply for the First Mate’s test, aspirants should be Second Mates and must be aged above 21 years.

    hope this answer will help you a lot........
