    Sir, I thank u for the detailed article on ETO course. Pls clarify my doubts…
    I heard that the ETO should work in extreme temperature n heavy noisy environments in the engine side about 45*C and its a tough job to survive there…
    I passed b.tech in electronics n communications with 55%.
    Am not so good with heavy electrical equipments and with electrical side…
    I heard that ETO course is offered on 'low voltage side'…
    If there any course so that I could stick with the navigation radio, radar systems …ie communication side ..not heavy electrical equipments like generator side…if I study this particular ETO course any chance for me to work only @ the communication n radar systems side?
    Is ETO is different from ship engineer?
    do we getting a job as fourth engineer after doing ETO course ?
    pls help…

      Well this is truth that engine people have to work in hot environment-but not always. Its depends on which part of globe you are sailing. If in colder climate, nothing is better than engine room.

      As per IMO from 2017, every engineer and ETO must hold high voltage course in order to serve on ships above 1000V.

      Radar and other equipments hardly get problems on ships.

      Yes ETO is different from engineer. ETO is for Electrical troubleshooting and engineer for machines. But both have to work together.

      No Your rank will be electrical officer not 4th marine engineer officer.

    Sir,
    I would like to know about the radio officer job.I heard that nowadays radio officer job is eliminated by the shipping companies as they insist their 3rd or 4th engineer to take the certification n do the job.
    Is it true? Is there any scope for radio officer career in future ? What salary for a junior radio officer n senior R O.?
    In some sites it says about $3000 n in some others its only $500 as salary.How many years it will take one to promoted to senior R O?

    Sir ,
    I heard that a radio officer job in oil rig industry is pretty highly paid job and there R O plays a vital role. But in many job sites the employer is seeking a 3 year experience as a radio officer in "offshore"n vessels.
    So if I choose this radio officer course n later having experience in vessels,am planning to get a job of R O in rig industry.
    What's your opinion ? I value your suggestions very much as you have great knowledge in this field…so pls guide me for a better future …
    Pls let me know the pros n cons of my 'idea '.
    Am having a btech degree in electronics n communications but as am not so good @ electrical side is it wise for me to go for ETO course?

      We Don't think that these days propelling time is counted, as most of the time ships are running. But still some days above the prescribed sailing period is advised. Like if 180 days are needed, sail for 185 or 190 days.

    Dear Friends ,
    There is no promotions for ETO in shipping ,whereas all other ranks have promotions.In Ship ETO is always an operational role .ETO needs to prepare PTW ,then finish the trouble shooting and finish the job. All done by him .Little assistance will be available to him.After working for the last 6 years as ETO ,I am regretting now as most of my friends have become 2nd Eng and C/Officer .Best option is to become a marine engineer.

    Hello,

    don´t take ETO route, you will be dumped by the industry as soon as they will not need you.
    (automatic control and troubleshooting will come by double systems)
    There is no promotion as well.
    Just like they did with the Radio Officers, with the help and advise of the Masters.

    just coose other industry, shipping is just too shortsighted.
