And that we're still at...a kind of standstill - as per TC normal operating procedure lol And as for mengineer85 - i guess they better get cracking on passing their exams. If they got their Chief ticke...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Ha right on, there ya go all worries solved. You gotta give us more insider info than that, though! Did they realize what a farce it was? What about people who have applied and received their new tickets, are they still valid - even though they came from a cracker Jack box? What about people who hav...

Re: What to Do ? Fire on the ship while in port.

St.John's fire department are trained for vessel fires. They make a point to specifically do the training and visit a ship a handful of times per year. That being said, they need instruction and help from ships crew as per specifics of the vessel. They are professionals. Call them. Their BAs will la...

Dang, this is a nice prospect of a spot.

Re: New Examination Process

Yip.

So why does IMO and TC hate the safety of seafarers?

I feel like once there's an inevitable incident where a inexperienced (though that's possibly subjective?) Chief kills some people, there should be a class action lawsuit.
Can that happen? Haha

Re: New Examination Process

Sure, and if I have my 3rd/4th class I haven't shown shit at the management level, so there must be hurdles in the way to go to 2nd/Chief then?

Re: New Examination Process

So to answer your question, Mike, you don't need to write any more Exams. However, was I you, a 1M is a hellova lot better than a 2M when it comes to looking for work ashore in the future. All you have to do is Lecktech, EKs and Orals. EKG is on Monday afternoons and EKM is on Tuesday mornings. Lec...

Re: Doom and Gloom

Yeah, not disagreeing with that. But I've had cadets from MI to BC, first year to last year, and I think I've really only had 1 I'd be comfortable enough to give him a watch... The real learning happens in the engine room, and the most important job of the 4th/3rd is to call the 2nd when shit goes d...
