Vocational education for seafaring officers is a long process. During this period, the educational programs proceed within a periodical improvement framework. Sea Training is an integral part of Maritime Education and Education (MET) and it is a part of academic program in the MET institutions. All seafaring officers should complete at least one year Sea training on board the ships to finalize their education. This training should be completed suitable commercial vessels and specially designed training ships. Initial evaluation of sea training are made by the ships which the cadet attended and the maritime schools made the final assessment to verify their achievement at sea training. Practical training is an absolute must for every type of seafarer’s education. The aim is to consolidate the academic knowledge taught and practical experience gained at sea. So, on the practical side of the curriculum, sea training comes into prominence during maritime education and that is what we discuss in this study. The main purpose of this research is to pinpoint the main problems encountered by cadets during their sea training phase, and make some suggestions for possible solutions to ensure quality and efficiency of the training. The study starts with a group study base on field study, to define the hypothesis is for questions of questionnaire for cadets participated sea training. The evaluation of the responds are used to finding and subsequently results and proposals. In addition, it is strongly suggested that the collected data and provided findings in this project are taken forward for further studies on this subject.
