Re: New Examination Process

"As per section 5 regarding annex 3;" Are you still talking about SSB 05/2017? If you are, section 5 of annex 3 is about "Able Seafarer, Engine." There will be no Exams at TC after the new version of the Marine Personnel Regulations come out of Gazette II. They are not written ye...

Re: Sailor's retirement dream job ?

Sounds more like a 3rd Class Power Engineer than a Marine jobbie. That's a Provincial ticket. Still, a 3S would probably fit right in and get the 3rd Class Power Engineer.

Re: Suicide and sea

Out of a job? No, not at all, if you are prepared to work for $1000 a month.

Re: Mouldy Navy

Well I retired, when I joined TC. No more 16 -18 hour days, every weekend off, sleep in my own bed (which stays in one place!), no vibration, no middle of the night phone calls (CHEEF!! IT's F*******) they give me days off they call "holidays" and I get paid for them! When I get sick, I ge...

Re: Doom and Gloom

The insurance industry will sort it all out. When they find out that whizz kids can't fix shit, the rates will go up, charter rates will fall and ship owners will lose money. That is the ONLY factor which is relevant, profits of ship owners.

Re: how to survive a disaster

This is why training is so important. Repetitive training ensures that when the caca hits the ventilator, you do the right thing without thinking about it. You get past the "brain freeze" before you are aware of it and just do it.

Re: RCN looking for Engineers

So, 33 weeks of Engineering training, won't learn very much in that time, these Halifax Class ships are quite complicated. (I was a Trials Engineer at St John Shipbuilding when they were built) I can see why TC doesn't accept RCN Officer's Engineering qualifications. It takes a 4 year College course...
