Re: 2 year program for Fourth Class at Georgian College

Looks like Nova Scotia Community College also restructured its Marine Engineering Diploma program. http://www.nscc.ca/learning_programs/programs/PlanDescr.aspx?prg=METD&pln=METECHDIP From their webpage: "Starting in 2014, the Marine Engineering Technology program will be restructured from a...

Re: 2 year program for Fourth Class at Georgian College

:) Well, at least you went to the link from my first post after a week of this discussion. All they added was the word Technician to the title - the 3 year program used to be called Marine Engineering Technology. It is still the new cadet course. The picture of the guy in his dress whites in the sim...

Re: 2 year program for Fourth Class at Georgian College

That makes sense from the current MPR, however according to that interpretation, Georgian College is false advertising and TC should have an issue with that. So should the students. They get 210 days of sea time included in the 24 month program and it says nothing about having to get 12 more months ...

Re: 2 year program for Fourth Class at Georgian College

Thanks again Jolly Jack for some clarification from your side of things but the waters still seem a bit murky to me. Especially if I was going to explain to a young person the best way to become a marine engineer in the next few years. I have always considered all TP documents to be gospel, especial...

Re: 2 year program for Fourth Class at Georgian College

While searching around the TP documents, I found the Engineer Officer Education and Training program (TP8911E) which has a 5th edition dated June 2012 that came into effect June 2013. This document states what is required for the new style program and answers most of my questions as to what it will ...

Re: 2 year program for Fourth Class at Georgian College

Thank you for all the info JollyJack. I do appreciate the knowledge towards the acts and regs that you share as the expert. That being said, with respect, opinions do matter and that is what forums are for. I completed a traditional cadet program in Canada and I also presently sail with those who ha...

2 year program for Fourth Class at Georgian College

http://www.georgiancollege.ca/academics/full-time-programs/marine-engineering-technician-co-op-metc/ In my opinion, two years of schooling does not seem like enough time to become qualified as a watchkeeping engineer. I am surprised that TCMS has approved this course that includes only 4 semesters o...

Re: 2nd Class Orals

Had my 2nd Class Orals a few weeks ago and the inspector went through the syllabus for 2nd Class Motor (2ORM) from section 27.12 of TP2293. Step by step, I was asked a question pertaining to each topic. http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety/tp-tp2293-chapter27-480.htm Some that I remember: - Your ves...

Re: Steam Tickets

No real response from anyone. People have actually been responding with some info for your training room posts. From reading the forum, British based tickets seem to be valued because they don't hand them out like some of the others you mentioned. STCW looks to have pretty broad standards as with m...

Re: Steam license?

Ahhhh. Missed that word "Archive". Sorry about that. However, it looks like the only major change is that it went from 225 kW to 500 kW. Still need those 6 months which won't be easy. The Algoma Montrealais is the last Canadian laker that is steam as far as I know after the Quebecois went ...
