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...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

All change! CoCs issued under the SSB are valid until HQ in Ottawa says they are not.

!

$8000 bucks? That's a year's tuition in a University Bachelor's degree! Why would anyone waste that much money when ERRs are not required anyway?

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

It means, as far as I can make out, that all tickets issued under the SSB and all applied for, have been suspended.

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Hey! I only work here! It seems that CoCs issued under this Ship Safety Bulletin are not valid. STCW 2010, Manilla, does not have examinations, instead, recognised educational institutions confirm competencies........so if you have $500 and an airline ticket to the far east.....

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Effective today, Ship Safety Bulletin 05/2017, which covers STCW Certification, has been withdrawn and is no longer in effect. Back to MPRs, to get a Chief Engineer Certificate, you'll have to get a First Class.

Re: Marine Advanced First Aid (31 hour course)

Have yu gone through the approval process with TC? The reason I ask is that if you have not, your training will not be recognized. There have been instances in the past where a non-approved "school" has provided training which has not been recognized by Examiners because the school is not ...

Re: Irving looking for Engineering Cadets

Anyone enrolled in a Bachelor's Engineering Degree would be bloody stupid to give it up for a cadet programme. The Canadian CoC will be worthless in a few years.
