This eLearning course is the first of two stages to achieve the STCW certificate. A signed agreement is required by the shipowner before the on board exercises can take place.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for review. The STCW certificate is awarded by Mintra 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 email@example.com to confirm the training programme.
