    There is as others have said no requirement to have an actual certificate - completetion of the relevant part of the TRB is sufficient.

    The MCA forms which are intended for ABs and OSs (ie not with a TRB) can be printed from their web site - some cadets get them if the ship there on has them, others don't bother or make their own in publisher - ultimately doesn't matter as long as its completed in the TRB you are fine.

      hi everyone, erm bit worried wonder if anyone could help

      I have done my ten hours of steering, but I had the task signed off in the bridge watchkeeping section of the trb but didn't have my certficate signed off and given to me because I was just being myself and didn't finish the steering till the day I left the ship. So my question is, when I go to my next ship, can the it just be signed by the master of that ship ? I just hope I havent made a catastophic cadetship ending mistake here.

        No, you should be fine, as long as you have the hours logged and signed off in your TRB, if you want a steering certificate (which if you have read this thread fully you will note there is [apparently] no need to get it as long as you have the hours logged in the TRB) from the next ship they'll probably want you to prove you can do it, so get an extra couple of hours logged and then ask them to give you the cert.

        PS. Thank you for using the search function before you posted!!

          It's not cadetship ending however you are a bit of a plank and with luck lesson learnt........Now how to fix, worse case you have to do the 10 hours again, best case, the old man gets you to do some and a pilotage and accepts that you did 10 hours on the basis you had it signed off in your TRB.

            Thought some body might say that chiefy! pheww thanks! so I take it that it wont really concern my training company Clyde Marine? I am with four handy they are my sponsors so they are the ones who sign off all my things in the TRB. Come to think of it, My friend from the glasgow college who I spent most of my entire seaphase with, finished his certficate on his second ship my ship having completed some of it on his first ship and their seemed to be no problem with the signing of it, so I am kind of in the same boat as him except I have already had the steering task signed in my trb, but I suppose that could be sorted as well and I could maybe just get a new page for my TRB and then have it signed again on my second ship.

              shouldnt need it re-signing you have done it, they may just ask you to resit it a bit nd then give you the certificate.

                        We had an ex BI OM in P&O who refused to acknowledge your presence unless you called him 'Sir'. Very popular he was...

                            You could always email ship and ask nicely for them to make one up and post it to you. You don't need to use the one in the TRB most companies will have their own.

                              The one in the trb is a bit confusing anyway isn't it because it gives you a section to sign off things like pilotage into harbours which I have heard you don't need to do to get your ticket anyway. I never actually did a pilotage on my first ship, was never confident enough! It will hard for me to get that confidence as well.

                                IIRC You need at least 2 hrs pilotage steering out of the 10hrs required to get your steering ticket.
