Being a marine pilot is by no means an easy task to take and it requires commitment, courage and genuine willingness for one to pursue this profession. Maritime pilots are largely regarded as skilled professionals in navigation as they are required to maneuver ships through dangerous or congested waters, such as harbors or river mouths. It is one of the few courses that takes more than 5 years to complete your studies and upon completion, you get certification from the International Maritime Organization.
