Immediately after Seacom Marine College announced the commencement of ETO course, it received thousands of applications in a short span of three weeks. After the initial screening and cut throat selection process, Seacom shortlisted and called about 2000 applicants for the final interview. It was a very tough process for the interviewers to get the best 40 future marines as many more have been found eligible for the ETO course. Hence for the pilot batch, the management may increase the seats and has also decided to extend the final list deadline to 31st January’2014 which gives opportunity to more aspirants some more time to apply. Now the first batch is scheduled to start on 3rd February’2014.
