Barter  International  Maritime  Studies (BIMS) trains cadets to
achieve  Engineering  Officer  of  the  Watch (EOOW), earlier
called  as  Class IV Certification in shortest possible duration.
The  courses  are  accredited by  the  MCA UK in association
with Warsash Maritime Academy Southampton UK.

The  certification  acquired  is  world  class in compliance with
the  requirements  of  the International Maritime Organisation
as  well as the relevant sections of the Standards of Training,
Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) for Seafarers, 1978,
as amended.

WERE YOU AWARE THAT…….
Sea   cargo   transportation  takes  99%  of  the  world  cargo
market  and  leaves  about  1% only  (by weight)   for  the  air
transportation   industry.  The   recent   boom   in  the  global
economy  has  driven  the  sea  freight  market  high  and the
order  books of most of the world’s shipyards are full through
the  next  5  years. There  are 70,000 ships plying across the
oceans,  and  numbers  are  expected  to  increase  very fast.
Each   ship   requires   a   Chief   Engineer  and   three watch
keeping  engineer officers. With the growing demand for new
ships,  there is expected to be a shortage of officers globally.
This  course leads the students through a structured training
program   preparing   them   for   their very  first  professional
certification at sea – EOOW (Engine) Unlimited certificate.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
At  the  end  of this course, participants are able to safely and
competently  carry  out  the  watch  keeping  duties  on board
merchant  ships  in  the  engine room both at sea and in port.
They  will  be  conversant  with  the  basic   principles  as  per
STCW Regulations VIII/2 & STCW Code Chapter VIII.

COURSE CONTENT
The course is conducted over 3 stages, as follows:

STAGE 1: Pre Sea Course(PSC)
5  months  duration,  conducted  at  BIMS  training  institute in

Upon completion, the trainees will be sent for stage 2 training
which will be arranged by BIMS.

STAGE 2: Shipboard Attachment Monitoring (SAM)
6 - 9   months  sea  going  training  on  board merchant ships
during  which the engine cadet completes the MNTB Training

ARRANGING FUNDS / EDUCATION LOANS

  • For  the  initial  5  months  course at Thailand, the student can take an education
    loan  to  cover his total expenses of tuition fees, food, accommodation and
    travel.  Alternate means of loans are taking  loan  against  jewellery  or  taking  a
    loan against property. If required, the student can be sponsored by his parents,
    siblings & other relatives also.

  • During  the training on board ship, accommodation and food is free for the cadet.
    His  salary  is  saved  for  the complete 6 - 7 months of training on board the ship.
    The cadet can also earn about 100 USD / month as cadet fund  which is given by
    many companies. The cadet can save up to 1.0 Lakhs during this period.

  • After  completing  the  training  on  board  the  ship,  the  student  will  proceed to
    Warsash  Maritime  Academy,  Southampton  (UK)  to give his EOOW exams. The
    duration  of  stay would be 2 months. As the stay in UK will be less than 6 months,
    hence  the  student  will not be allowed to work part-time in the UK. Therefore, the
    student  must  have  sufficient  funds  to  bear the cost of his education and living
    expenses  in  the  UK. The  tuition  fee  for  the  course in UK is 2,000 GBP. Flight
    fares,  visa  and  living  costs  will  add  upto another 2,000 GBP. Hence, the total

    Officer.  The  present  market  wages  for a 4th Engineer Officer is in the range of

    company he joins.                                                                                              
    With  one year of sailing experience as an Engineer Officer, the student can
