Perhaps you have seen a lot posts like this one plz do not judge to fast and help if you can.
I have finished my college (cadet program, Marine engineering) in 2004 back in Ukraine(I'm 36 now). Got my bachelor diploma, got in to the army and did not get my certificate of competency at that time (i do believe we were given 12 months to do that). Life went into a family direction after; marriage, kid.
Day-by-day, time was flying; immigration to Canada afterwards and almost 6 years of survival job here at starters, with typical bad English after the immigration.
Dust has settled a bit for me in the new country and I am back to the teenage dream/desirable career.
Enough of the sentiments, now back to the main reason of this message:
- a bachelor in Marine Engineering diploma(4 years), issued in 2004 - never received my COC(just a college diploma, academy if to be precise)
- able seaman certificate issued back then, with all the side ceritificates needed at that moment to start as a on deck and motorman position.
- river port certificate of watchkeeping motorman issued long time ago.
For sure, everything what could expire, got expired long time ago.
Would you be so kind to point me a direction to go so I could get back onto the tracks of obtaining 4th class COC and get back to seafaring.
Much appreciated to the moon and back for any piece of advice, own experince shared and/or pointers.
Thanks a lot.
