Re: The hammer drops (on Canadian cabotage)

I feel like the issue of Canadian cabotage affects more than just Canadian seafarers. If we don't have Canadian flagged, Canadian crewed vessels working in Canadian waters, how are we supposed to support our claim to sovereignty in the Artic? The industry must be healthy.

Re: STCW 2010

It looks like UK, Singapore, India, and Ukraine have figured out how to offer the high voltage course. Even the Shetlands have one. Seems like its just a one day thing. We aught to be able to figure it out over here.

Re: Small Vessel Machinery Operator (SVMO)

Perfect. Thank you. In reading through the posts on this thread, someone complained that air started engines aren't within the realm of the svmo.

Re: ROC-MC

Thanks. None of those institutions will give challenge exams, you have to take the full $500 course. I called industry canada, and they said the same thing: you have to take the course. Which means the published syllabus must be wrong: https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf05269.html#Chall...

ROC-MC

A tug captain told me that I aught to get my SOTO certification. Can't hurt, right? One of the pre-reqs is to get a ROC-MC license. I have the study guide, and I'm ready to challenge the exam.

Re: Small Vessel Machinery Operator (SVMO)

First of all, I am sorry that you all lost your friend, Brian. I am now passing the time between the end of my first academic term in the meoc program at bcit and going out on my first sea phase. I thought it would be a good idea to prepare for the svmo exam, so that maybe I can find a little bit of...
