Engineering Officers & Ratings Courses

Marine engineering work on board ships include but not limited to monitoring the mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and control equipment; the sophisticated engine management systems; maintenance and monitoring of the machinery space and log readings to carry out engineering operations safely.

Our courses are aligned and accredited to the standards specified under Chapter 3: STCW Code for Standards Regarding Engine Department (Certification).

  • STCW III/1: Officers in Charge of an Engineering Watch in a manned engine-room or as designated duty engineers in a periodically unmanned engine-room
  • STCW III/2: Chief Engineer officers and Second Engineer officers on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of 3,000 kW propulsion power or more.
  • STCW III/3: Chief Engineer officers and Second Engineer officers on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of between 750 kW and 3,000 kW propulsion power
  • STCW III/4: Ratings Forming Part of an Engineering Watch in a manned engine-room or designated to perform duties in a periodically unmanned engine-room
  • STCW III/5: Able Seafarer Engine in a manned engine-room or designated to perform duties in a periodically unmanned engine-room.
  • STCW III/6: Electro-Technical Officers
  • STCW III/7: Electro-Technical Rating

At the management level, you have the Chief Engineer and the Second Engineer (First Assistant Engineer), in charge of the engine department who hold complete responsibility for the operations of the engine room and maintenance of all types of machinery onboard the vessel.

At the operations level you have the DDE (Designated Duty Engineer) or the Engineer Officer of the Watch (EOW- 4th engineer and 3rd Engineer) who perform regular watch keeping and engineering maintenance under the supervision of the management level engineers. There are also Electro-technical officers who takes care of the electrical/electronic equipment on board and overseen by the Chief and the Second Engineers. There are Ratings Forming Part of an Engineering Watch who must understand orders of the certified engineering officers relevant to watchkeeping duties, carry out a watch routine compliant with the duties of an engine room watch, and more.
