What dose it take to get a CEC? How hard is it to get?

For everything you wanted to know, and probably more just follow the link below.

It can be that hard, judging by some of the people I have sailed or worked with!!

So you think getting a CEC is easy, think again, I tried back in 2001 and the paperwork is horrendous wait until you get to the part about writing the UKLAP exam. I took more than 1000 pages of documents with me from the MCA and when I got to the exam room the examiner said "is that all you brought" he said that most candidates have more than 3 times what I brought with me needless to say I failed the UKLAP exam.
