STCW III/3

Can anyone explain exactly what a STCW III/3 engine room certificate is? Does this even exist now? I can not find to much on it. A guy mentioned this to me a few days ago and I had no clue.

Re: Steam Tickets

Steam license?

Can anyone tell me what is needed to write your steam tickets? Can you write a 4th class without having steam time? I am looking on the TC website but cant really find to much on it.

Re: Questions?

Thanks again guys. Looks like my reeds is different then yours. mine is not even close to those pages. As for #1. Seems simple enough but can anyone put down a set procedure as such.
