This four-week course will assist you in preparing for:
- International Association of Maritime Institutions (IAMI) Engineering Knowledge (EK) written examinations.
- MCA oral examination for Engineer Officer of the Watch (EOOW) at III/1 level.
NOE application must be made by you direct to MCA Southampton. MCA can be contacted via phone on: +44 23 8032 9231 (choose option three).
The IAMI administers the written Engineering Knowledge examination on behalf of MCA. The college provides the examination form and associated guidance during induction. Oral examinations are booked directly with the MCA examination centre of your choice.
As part of your application, we'll assess your documentation and advise you of any ancillary courses you may need to achieve your Officer rating.
