Re: Engine Room Rating course available Western Canada

Why isn't the shipping industry paying for training? After all, they benefit from it.

$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Effective today, Ship Safety Bulletin 05/2017, which covers STCW Certification, has been withdrawn and is no longer in effect.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: 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.
