Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

This was for my 2nds, not my 4ths. Could have found a multitude of ways to stump me at 4ths level - I probably never even knew where/why I'd use hydrazine or even it's Chemical formula. You're answers are all right from Reed's general. Matter of fact, 2 years ago when my chief told me to anneal a Cu...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Duly noted, fully understand, my respect to everyone who busts their ass to get it done one way or the other - don't get me wrong, I want anyone who goes for it to succeed, I wish everyone the best. Reed's walks through and explains everything you need to know, for outside classroom people. Don't ha...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Firstly, some people were in the process of writing the exams when the system changed. I was half done my exams for my last ticket and then this came into place, but i just finished the exam process and all was well. I'm glad I did haha The examiner was so lackluster about it though lol I completel...

Re: New Examination Process

Well now there's management and leadership and ship law/business - our tickets meet and far exceed STCW 10? So we can work anywhere and kick ass, excluding the HV training required vessels... Yes? Maybe? I've never worked international, but I've known lots went have worked all over with their Canadi...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Yeah, you're not wrong there lol I can be a bit extreme. This is my passion. My leisure reading is technical manuals haha some of my best troubleshooting is while I'm asleep and dreaming about Engineering. (Writing it out... It's clear I have a problem hahaha) #1 My family, and #2 Engineering; basic...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

I don't want to be a prick, but I also don't want to dumb down what we do. We deal with the physical sciences. Just because you can turn a wrench doesn't make you an engineer . When you're on watch read an exam subject for half hour every day, when you're off watch practice that subject for a half h...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Couple months ago everyone was crying that tickets are going to be given away for free, they'll have no value, what a joke, this is the end of it all. Now they've quashed that, and actually made it more difficult to get the tickets... And... Everyone is pissed off again. (except the guys who got the...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Lol I was thinking the same thing. It went from nothing to having to do more haha.
I will get my 1st class regardless of hurdles, but it'd just be nice to know what I'll for sure have to do when I have enough sea time lol

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

It means do the exams and actually earn the ticket, or fly somewhere and fullfil the Manilla regs? 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...
