Pakistan Navy at the time of independence only had a small workshop at Manora for technical training of officers and men. The need was immediately realized to establish a set-up at the earliest. As a first step Marine Training Establishment (MTE) was created at Manora in 1948. The facility was upgraded as an independent unit in Dec 1950. Subsequently, as per dictate of the time a new establishment was considered for commissioning, in an area where future expansion could take place. Accordingly, HMPS Karsaz came into being on 24 Sep 1954. Later, the establishment was renamed as PNS Karsaz and was assigned an initial role to train mechanical branch artificers only. The created infrastructure was designed for a total strength of 250 trainees extendable to 400. In 1955 Electrical training also commenced in Karsaz and thereafter Electrical & Mechanical Schools started functioning side by side along with PT school and NBCD School. PN Staff College and Supply School were later additions.
