About SSR

Vying for defence jobs is not new in our country. Every year, all the defences forces in India issue recruitment notifications for various posts that include the post of officers. Recently, the Indian Navy has released a recruitment notification for the enrolment of Sailors for Senior Secondary Recruits (SSR). Candidates who qualified in 10+2 with maths and physics as majors along with one of these subjects – chemistry, biology or computer science – are invited to apply.

Candidates who are selected for the SSR course will commence the training. One has to undergo 22 weeks of basic training at INS Chilka followed by professional training in the allotted trade in various naval training establishments. When thousands of candidates are aspiring to pursue this course, one should start their preparations before the online application closes. Here are the tips to prepare for the Sailor post.
