It is mandatory that all marine engineering apprentice maintain there work diaries throughout their prescribed industrial time at a marine engineering workshop.
2. All the entries will be in chronological orders and dates and places of duty must be clearly mentioned.
3. Foremen workshop instructor or the respective shop incharge or the engineering incharge of a ship must countersign the works-statement
4. The work diaries will be issued in a set of one for each engineering apprentice. One of these, when completed and inspection/scruting by the manager workshop will be conducted on quarterly basis
5. The diaries shall be submitted promptly to the officer incharge at the end of every working quarter of the year OIC training will endorse his remarks before the submission to the chief examiner m.o.c
6. Detailed description, lists of tools and gadgets, safety and precaution points and elaborate sketches will bring you much merit points.
7. Signatures of the apprentice and the supervisor must be affixed at the end of the description of the assignment.
8. No intershop transfers shall be made without submission of the work diaries complete in all respects for their respective allotted period. It is mandatory to clear shop test.
9. Unauthorized absence of more then three/week will call for extension/short service certificate.
10. On completion of apprenticeship, the work diary to be returned, if any one found failed to do so, their certificates shall not be is issued.
on various models (like control valve, solenoid valve, flow meter, refrigeration system, CPP propeller, Main engine model (TWO stroke), Boiler model (water tube) ……………………………….. in GEK (general engineering knowledge) lab, Mechanical and physics lab, Engineering workshop. ETC . After two years, we joined PNSC workshop for the training of ONE year Industrial training. That was also the golden time where we learnt a lot of things at different shops as well as onboard (repairing and watch keeping). I learn many thing on tanker E.g. MT Johar (learn how to dismantle turbine rotor from casing and what are the precautionary measurement while working on turbine, learn how to change the diaphragm(stationary blade) Plate type heat exchanger gasket change, shell and tube Cooler Anode replacement and (Cont.)
cleaning of SALT WATER tubes etc.) , MT Swat (major thing which I learn in Swat is how to dismantle head of main unit and copper gasket replacement with a minor facing defect which is found during overhauling which is filled and faced by Belzona) , MT Lahore(About the DEAD MAN ALARM, Alpha lubricator for Cylinder Main Engine Unit, Pump operation and watch keeping), MT Quetta(Auto load sharing of Generator Set, MT Karachi (Dry washing of the main engine turbocharger with granules, water washing of IG Fan of Inert Gas system, sludge removal of from purifier(centrifuge) etc., . One thing I want to added is that the trend in ship building is more toward based on electronic and electrical application. So a marine engineer must strong in automation, instrumentation and control system. PLC (programmable and logic control) and SCADA (supervisory central access and data acquisition) are the upcoming technology that are using on modern ship. The latest engine of MAN B&W is based on Camless technology. Chain is removed ; fuel pump and exhaust valve actuation is control by hydraulic servo(lub) oil which is driven by Axial piston pump mounted on the Fly wheel.
