Engineer Officer of the Watch (Specialised Route)
A programme leading to STCW ’95 III/1 Engineer Officer of the Watch (EOOW) Certification for candidates with specialised academic qualifications and/or experience recognised by the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA). In addition to any other training requirements specified by the MCA in their ‘Letter of Initial Assessment’, candidates will undertake International Association of Maritime Institutions (IAMI) Engineering Knowledge (EK) written examination and/or the MCA oral examination.
Candidates will undertake the requisite MNTB Workshop Skills training (unless exempted by the MCA), which is taught and assessed to the satisfaction of the MCA in accordance with MNTB standards. Candidates must also pass the initial four STCW safety courses before completing a minimum six months\' sea service (including four months\' engine room watch keeping duties).
During the sea service period, candidates will complete an MNTB Training Record Book to the required standard and complete guided study course material before returning to the Academy. We are no longer sending these out due to change in the programme to HNC. During the final Academy phase, candidates will complete all additional STCW certification courses and attend tutorials prior to undertaking IAMI EK written examination (on general engineering knowledge and steam/motor engineering knowledge) and the MCA oral examination.
