    Dear Sir/Mam
    We are running an institute providing coaching for AIPMT & JEE through satellite. Coaching classes are relayed at our end on screen live and two way interactive and are run from Mumbai. We are searching for an institute which is providing coaching for merchant navy through the same technology. So that we can run same coaching classes for the aspirants of merchant navy in our own area at Himachal Pradesh.

    In the present scenario shipping companies are facing huge shortage of trained professionals.

    So its very good idea to join merchant navy. because we all know that merchant navy officers are heavily paid($1500-$2000).
    salaries of merchant navy officials are TAX FREE as well.

    There are many courses u can take admissions
    1.BSc Nautical Science
    2.B.Tech Marine Engineering
    3.B.Tech Naval Architecture
    4.Diploma Nautical Science
    5.G.P. rating
