For our OPITO approved courses, such as IMIST and Authorised Gas Tester Training, a further level of verification is required. For Mintra to be able to process the certificate, ID must be sent to our learning Centre. If you have sent this to the Learning Centre, and completed the course but are yet to receive your certificate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have previously done any OPITO training, you will have a vantage number. To get a copy of this, you can contact OPITO. You need to input your vantage number during the checkout process for MIST as this is how the license is registered to you.
If you have been offshore before and have a vantage number OR you have done the MIST classroom course you are able to do the MIST Online course.
Because MIST has been previously completed, you are able to sit the MIST online when it is convenient to you. Please note, if your certificate is due to lapse while offshore, please check with your operator.
Existing MIST certificates can be renewed up to three months in advance of the expiry date. The new MIST certificate will be valid for four years from the previous expiry date.
The eLearning course is the first of two stages to achieving the STCW certificate. The second stage is carried out on board the vessel and requires an Evaluator and the completion of exercises and a checklist. Once the on board checklist is signed and completed it is emailed with the supporting documentation to email@example.com for review. The STCW certificate is awarded by Mintra on approval of the checklist and eLearning certificate with a 70% pass mark.
The timescales vary depending on the course, vessel type and activity levels on board, but we would recommend planning for six weeks as a minimum to complete the exercises and checklist.
An Evaluator can be the vessel Captain, a qualified assessor, the Master / Chief Engineer, or Rig Manager.
We require up to a maximum of two weeks for Mintra's Master Mariner to review and award the NMA STCW certificate. We make every effort to process submissions as quickly as possible within this timeframe.
To carry out the on board training, the shipowner is required to first sign an agreement for decentralised training with Mintra.
