I joined Indian Navy as an Artificer Apprentice. It is a 4 year training program. Seniors played crucial role in grooming the new recruits as per the highest traditions of artificers. This has resulted in developing highly skilled professionals who proved to be real assets both in Indian Navy and all walks of civil life. All other branches in Indian Navy look at Artificers with envy. The apprentice setup helps in developing top class sportsmen and professionals in this branch. Electrical,Mechanical and Hull Artificers are in the three main branches. From Electrical Artificers again aviation and submarine branches are formed. Similarly from Mechanical aviation and Submarine are sub branches. Hull Artificers deal with the ship body repairs and immediate repairs during damage caused. There are lot of opportunities to learn advanced aircraft system and to be move around nationally and internationally. The remuneration received for sea service was felt to be very low when compared to their counterparts in shipping. However overall it was a unique experience.
Free food and accommodation.
Sailing on board a war ship during monsoon season is very difficult.
Meant for strong willed, hard working, secular and professional individuals. The life is hard where you could go without a weekend for a month, spend frequent time at sea away from young family members, yet its a life of satisfaction, all round grooming and adventure, especially if in the executive departments
Excellent training, adventurous, proud life, excellent facilities, free medical cover for entire life

I have served in so many units of Indian Navy like In war ships , Army head quarter and training base. I have visited during my services about 26 countries as good will visit.
Indian Navy gives you an ocean of opportunities to explore experienced and get it mastered on world-class technology. It provides you with a very good platform to learn and showcase all your abilities and talent. IT gives you a platform not only to improve your skills but helps in developing confidence and patriotism towards the holy motherland. it's an immense experience I can say every Indian must go through if given an opportunity. I am proud to be a part of it and have served the nation for 15 good years. Jai Hind !!
One has to be a self-learner in the Indian Navy when it comes to career advancement as there is nothing of that sort is taught. The training one receives is adequate enough to perform tasks expected from an employee. As most sailors retire very young (32 - 35 years) they need to be prepared to resettle in civilian life. But the Navy lacks any training program to prepare its outgoing sailors. In fact, the certificate/s provided at the end of the tenure is not suitable for the corporate environment. This becomes particularly difficult when applying for overseas jobs.
Possible to join at a young age
Chances of promotion after certain rank and extension of service are challenges
As defence services are known to be difficult and stressful at all the time. No working time is fixed even for a single day. Life at sea is challenging. No job security, no family life Good things Had opportunity to visit so many countries on government expenses It's feels pride when in uniform Physical fitness always maintained dueservice
While serving the nation being the part of Indian Armed Forces and Indian Navy, It was an emmense satisfaction. While Navy trains us to take up responsibility, the job assigned gives us deep thought and meticulous planning for accomplishment. This is how we all grow up in the Forces and the system prepared us to take care of any situation that comes in our way.
worked 15 years in Indian navy. have worked in Executive Operations, Administrative, security, liaison and logistics management. I have learned to organize work/ liaison with different communities, state people to work comprehensively towards achieving goal.
