Why you need a mentor is because experience is everything in Merchant Navy. A mentor can tell you pros and cons of Merchant Navy which ultimately help you to choose your path. You are like a new born baby in Merchant navy world. You have no idea about what will be there out at sea,what you will have to face,how difficult is life onboard ship. A good Mentor will help you give a good idea about this field and you can rethink about your idea  more clearly.

4. Choosing Best Merchant Navy College.

Frankly saying, In Merchant Navy cheating cases has been reported highly. Some cheats you by becoming agents, some cheats by fake institute. As the course fee is high, cheating level is also high. Be aware, choose wisely, take enough information before joining. Institute provides you placement if your performance is upto their requirements.
