About Mandatory certificate for marine engineers?
Question:I learnt that to work onboard a ship or maritine area one needs mandatory certificate from a school of oceanography.
You need to do a cadetship which is a 4 year course. 3 years in college and 1 year at sea.
From this you will gain Certificates of Competency
Class 4 - Watchkeeping
after more sea and college time
Class 2 - 2nd Engineer - Unlimited for motorships and restricted Chief Engineer to 3,000 kW
after yet more sea and college time
Class 1 - Chief Engineer - Unlimited for Motorships
There are also qualifications for Steam Engineers but these types of vessels are few and far between these days.
