Academic Chamber





To lead the caravan to its zenith, the key component of the objectives of the Master Mariners Society of Pakistan is to devise ways and means for increasing aca­demic and scientific knowledge of the Pakistan Merchant Navy Officers. The Prime need to make headway on this course was the requirement of a lecture room enable start courses for Mariners, being food of thought and proposed by Capt. Anwar Shah, After thoughtful planning, the MMSP office accommodation was architectured to allow half its space for a lecture room which was named as "ACADEMIC CHAMBER". Additionally, the tasteful designing, colour scheme, decoration etc. supplemented with a couple of months hard work, buried the century-old appearance of the office and gave it a dignified look To perform the opening ceremony of this historical beginning, the person chosen to be the Chief Guest was rightfully the most precious jewel in the MMSP's treasure chest, i.e. our President of the Master Mariners Society of Pakistan Capt. Haleem A. Siddiqui. This Academic Chamber was inaugurated on 31st July 1998 in presence of large gathering of Marine professionals. Several MMSP members and office bearers played their role in the establishment of this Chamber. But there are few who played the pivotal role. Without the efforts of  Capt Mujahid Karim Khan, the Acting General Secretary of MMSP and Capt. Aijaz Ahmad under the guidance of Capt. An war Shah, this Academic Chamber certainly would not have seen the light of the day. For their excellent contribution MMSP offers them a big THANK YOU.


Capt. Intizar Mehdi and Capt. M.Y. Rizvi and with the co-ordinated efforts of Capt. S. I. H. Naqvi and Capt. Anwar Shah the Academic Chamber of MMSP in collaboration with Pakistan Marine Academy conducted first ever specialized Chemical Tanker Training Course in Pakistan. Around 25 officers attended this course and a foreign ships company for its Chemical Tankers employed all of them.


The first course on "Introduction to ISM Code & STCW - 95" was held on 24-09-1998. Since then twenty courses have been conducted by Capt, M. Y. Rizvi on voluntary basis. Beside this four courses of "Introduction to Protection  and Indemnity Insurance " conducted by Capt. Syed Haider Hussain and five courses of "Human Resource Management'" conducted by Capt. M. Jamil Akhtar Khan. Each course had around 20 participants. Several members and non-members have attended these courses.
