The Directorate General of Shipping (DGS), India deals with all marine related activities in India including Maritime Training. At present there are 105 approved Maritime Institutes by the DGS. Ship visits are mandatory for the trainees in these training institutes as part of the training activities. In fact some of the training institutes as per the DGS directives have gone for Ship in Campus, which is a replica of a ship with in the institute with all equipment installed. Ship in Campus is necessary for those institutes whose trainees are not sent to outside marine workshops as part of training.
During ship visit, the trainees are divided into smaller groups so that the trainees can see the equipments clearly and can understand the working of the equipment easily. Ship visit is an opportunity for the trainees to physically see the ships equipment which are taught in class rooms. The ship visit is almost a whole day affair.
