To join the Merchant Navy as a Rating, you will work specifically with either one of the British ferry companies or with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. It is also possible to join one of the very many offshore support fleets.

Trainee seamen, catering assistants and motormen are sponsored through their employers through entry courses in Sea Survival, Survival Craft and Fire fighting before taking to the seas.
