Re: Engine Room Resource management course

Both courses you mention are the same genre, the first is at "operational" level and the second "management" level. I guess they could be called Leadership 1 and Leadership 2, both designed to extract more money from Engineers wishing to advance. See how much the course is in Pak...

Since November 2017, you'll need Applied Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Electrotechnology and Navel Arc. for 4th Class. See Ship Safety Bulleti...

Re: Taxes

Medicals and renewals can be done at the Canadian Embassy in the country of residence. You have to get in touch with AMSPE, 330 Sparks St, Ottawa. Phone number is in the book, postal code and full address are in TP 2293 and in the MPRs (I think, but TP 229 for sure)

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

I apprenticed as an Engine Fitter before I became a Marine Engineer. When I came to Canada, I challenged Exams for Heavy Equipment Mechanic, Millwright and Power (Stationery) Engineer, got the lot. So a basis in Marine Engineering is a solid base for other Trades.
