    Quite an interesting setup. QM2 notably cruises on diesels but uses GTs for boost power to achieve 30kts.

    MSN 1857 contains the answer...

    5.5 Service on gas turbine ships Service on gas turbine ships can be used at full rate for both motor and steam certification. Engineer Officers holding motor or steam Certificates of Competency are eligible to serve on this type of vessel; however, some additional training related to the gas turbine machinery may be required for senior Engineer Officers.

    Note that it would also require completing all the Steam parts of the TRB and sitting/passing the Steam EK exam.

    Not sure whether gas turbine would count for both at the same time I.e. if counted for steam cannot be counted for motor...
