Re: ME instructor, MI MUN, NFL

Funny!! Actually ironic. The same people who are complaining about people being certified under the SSB 05/2017 fiasco are complaining because the training Institutions are asking for more qualified people. Up in arms because people are getting higher certiciation without playing the memorizing game...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Not sure what year that was but things have changed. I think some provinces may allow this but not all. I have contacted my local authority for power engineering certification many times over the past 10+ years. It’s not an equivalent trade (in their eyes) and if I wanted it....go back to school. As...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Revolver Been following this post and reading all your comments. I totally agree with your opinions and views on SSB 05/2017. I was the first to say "This is not going to work" when everyone was applying for their Chief's license. When it was issued I did not even make a big deal out of it...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Just seen a couple letters that were issued. No apology, no reasoning, no nothing. Pretty much just says “your certificate is no longer valid. Please place it in the pre paid envelope and send it back to Transport Canada. Your valid 2nd class is enclosed”. Well at least they paid for the envelope......

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

I just contacted TC and according to what they said even certificates that were issues are being recalled? What a mess!! Like to know if anyone else got any info on this? Not really clarified in the SSB. And what about this high voltage course? Never heard of it? is it even offered anywhere?

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Jolly Jack, thanks for the update. What about applications that were in process?are they all cancelled? People holding certificates that were issued. What happens with those? The way I understand it is they are valid until renewal date?

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

What about certificates that were already issued and people that are using them? When will these courses be made available for people? how long are they going to be? all this should be ready to go if they are rolling out these new requirements.

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Blackhatch... I also was told mine was issued but when I went to pick it up it was "on hold". To be honest it's not like I was expecting it. After being in the industry now for almost 17yrs and dealing with TC's processes and procedures, it seemed to good to be true. But then on the other ...
