WHY BECOME AN ELECTRO-TECHNICAL OFFICER

Are you looking for a sea career? Why not think about specialising in marine electronics? With the size of vessels increasing and never-ending advances in technology there is fast becoming a greater requirement on board Merchant Navy ships for Electro-Technical Officers.

Electro-Technical Officers (ETOs) are on board to maintain and repair any systems with an electronic element. This can range from complex engine room control systems to radars and electronic chart systems on the bridge. ETOs are also involved with cargo operations, the range of work varying dependent on the type of vessel.

You’ll be ranked according to your experience and qualifications and with each grade comes more responsibilities. As an Officer Cadet you will start at the bottom and work your way up:

  • Senior ETO – supervision of the team of ETOs on board and responsible for overseeing all maintenance on electrical and electronic equipment
  • ETO – maintenance of a wide range of complex electronic and electrical equipment, dealing with technical challenges such as fault finding and repairs

The Electro-Technical Officer role is still relatively new to the industry and as such, the roles of the Junior and Senior ETO may vary dependant on the type of vessel.

If that doesn’t sound like you there are other Merchant Navy careers to choose from.
