The oldest profession in the world is to be a seafarer. To become a professional seafarer you can join the Namibian Maritime and Fisheries Institute for all your maritime training. This training is categorized in officers and crew. The officers are divided into two professions:
- Deck officers, who navigate and command the ship and look after the cargo and,
- Engineering officers, who keep the engines and machinery in running condition. Ratings support the deck and engineering tasks onboard.
