    Hello sir, i am Nishant kumar pandey from ranchi. I have got 92% marks in 10th from cbse and 55.67% marks in 12th pcm from jharkhand state board. I want to join this pre sea training. I have already done stcw 95 course. Sir, actually i have been cheated 1.5lakh rupees by a FRAUD ACADEMY called SEAWORLD MARINE ACADEMY, RANCHI. on account of becoming a deck cadet. At that time i did no about dgs and all. This academy is not a dgs approved academy. It took an entrance exam then send a joining letter congratulating me that i have been selected there. Then for six months i along with 80 students ( from different parts few were from up few from bihar , assam and even kolkata) remain in the academy doing our so called training. Then at the end of 5 month we were called that we all are going to do some practical training. We were sent to seacon marine college, kolkata to do stcw (basic course). Then after a month we all were called to take our certificate of stcw in the academy and thats it. And no pre training certificate. (here the manager named aditya pronounces certificate as Sartifitake). Then we asked him for placement at that he demanded 1.5 lakh rupees more. And the worst part is that at present there are 150 students taking ‘TRAINING’ in the academy. They all have paid 1.85 lakh rupees few with a hope of becoming deck cadet, few gp rating and yes there is a course for engine cadet also. And at present i all unable to arrange this sum of 50000 rupees to do gp rating course at orissa maritime. I am asking is there any facility of education loan. I am really too depressed these days. So please do help me. My email id , nkpandey92@gmail.com. I will be waiting for your reply. Pls sir suggest me some way for education loan. -nkpandey92@gmail.com. HELP ME.

    I was the student of your seaworld marine academy and I am placed in executive ship manegment.And I am very much satisfied by S.M.A. I also want to say that I define S.M.A.I also want to say that I define S.M.A. in one line S.M.A. means the name of believe and faith.And also no one compare with S.M.A.
    S.M.A. proved his power in placement field.In my knowledge 99.9% students got placement in India or forine.
    Every competitor want to go high and high but never reached that position, But the S.M.A. is got . Every student get care and respect from S.M.A. Teachers and facalities are very polite and good.I got lot of knowledge from S.M.A. and that knowledge work in my duty and also daily life
    One day I hered some unnecessary word in againt of our academy that time I felt very upset. Our S.M.A. students know what got by this academy.At last one thing.I want share with you when we complete any course and left the institude or academy no one remember us.but our S.M.A. remember us always and also give respect and value.
