Further Information - Norwegian Maritime Rules & Regulations (STCW 1/10.2) Training


This eLearning course is the first of two stages to achieving the STCW certificate. A signed agreement is required by the shipowner before the on board exercises can occur.

The second stage is carried out on board the vessel and requires an Evaluator and the completion of exercises and a checklist. An Evaluator can be the vessel Captain, a qualified assessor, the Master / Chief Engineer, or Rig Manager.


Once the on board checklist is signed and completed it is emailed with the supporting documentation to for review. Mintra awards the STCW certificate on approval of the checklist and eLearning certificate with a 70% pass mark.


To carry out the on board training, the shipowner is required to first sign an agreement for decentralised training with Mintra. This is emailed to to confirm the training programme.
