Electrician Officer or Deck Officer

I want some advices from you because I don’t know what to choose.The first problem is vision and I have some doubts that a deck officer can become a captain if he has myopia.At least when you drive the ship with the steering wheel you have to gain a good sight.The second problem is that I’m not so great at physics and chemistry and I heard that if you want to become an electrician officer you have to fill all your empty knowledges with everything that you didn’t learnt in highschool or school and I’m still trying to learn these subjects(even if I’m parallel with them).
What are your advices?What should I pick?

Am I ignored?

Deck officer.

What nationality are you? The way your licensing system is set up varies by nationality.

Romanian is my nationality.



But what about the other choice(electrician officer)?Could you describe me what chances I have there in your opinion?

electrician, you’ll start near the top of the pay scale for that and easily xfer to engineering but you gotta know your stuff !!, shipboard electricians are not so popular anymore.
