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.

Re: Taxes

Non resident is the only way to go. If you have dual Can/UK citizenship, inform the UK taxman you are resident in UK. You will come under the Merchant Shipping Act and if you are 181 days out of UK you won't pay UK tax. Inform CRA you are no longer resident in Canada, show them the letter from UK ta...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

I found that it isn't very difficult to "stump" college engineers, just ask them to anneal, forge, harden and temper mild steel, or even the steel making process. What's the difference between a Besemer and an open hearth furnace, for example. Both 1st year apprenticeship questions for a f...

Re: BC Ferries looking for senior engineers

It should be noted that sea service as Junior watchkeeper, or Junior Engineer, no longer counts for upgrading Certificates. Only time as Engineer In Charge of a Watch will count.

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Pending Chief Engineer, STCW, applications have been cancelled and any CoCs issued recalled. A Registered Letter to that effect has gone to the affected. There is, I believe, one ship registered in Canada which uses a 1000 v system, the CCG icebreaker, Louis St Laurent. CCG is exempted from the CSA ...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

The new SSB has reinstated the Marine Personnel Regulations, or, if you like, you want the ticket, you do ALL the Exams. There are a few additions, too. All levels require training in Marine Law and Ships Business, and a course in Leadership and Team Management. There are additional Exams in 3rd Cla...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

I have no Idea who "Elizabeth in Ottawa" is, it's not a name I recognize. The STCW 2010 Chief Engineer, issued under SSB 05/2010, exceeds the requirements of STCW 2010, but falls far short of Canadian Marine Personnel Regulations and TP 2293. The problem, as I see it, is if we are to align...

Re: Engine Room Rating course available Western Canada

Why isn't the shipping industry paying for training? After all, they benefit from it. On the other hand, when STCW 2010 is fully implemented and STCW Certificates are regarded equally, you won't need Canadian ERRs and Engineers in the Canadian shipping industry, third world crews are much, much chea...
