  • College units

    Hey all,

    I start my cadetship in september with CMT (If my offer is confirmed and not conditional) I'm currently at another college in the last few weeks of a level 3 subsidiary diploma in engineering as well as a PEO which i have completed, and i was told that some of the units on my course would be transferable to my HNC/D. So could anyone tell me what units are on the HNC/D course? Because i may already have some of them completed, i have covered:

    Mathematics for technicans
    Mechanical Principles
    Mechanical Devices and Systems
    Electrical Devices and systems
    Health and Safety
    Programmable Logic Controllers

    I also have a Level 2 First Diploma in Engineering if that helps

    Will any of these be transferable to a marine course?

    Cheers

        Would be very helpful if someone answered my question lmao

          Its kinda hard to say. yes you will cover electrical, mechanical, H&S and Math but without knowing the details of what your syllabus covered and comparing it to the engineers course its not possible to see where there is any overlap stuff Math for engineers can cover a lot.
          Things like PLC's you wont touch at all.
          The best idea would be to talk to Clyde and ask for details about this and then talk to STC to get any concession arranged.
          you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

            PLC's my favourite, cant wait to be working on some! Will electro cadets do any sort of decki stuff? (at STC)

              Hi mate, I'm nearly finished my Engineering Advanced Diploma which covers similiar units to yours. Some of it we will use in September such as maths, h&s, maintenance of machinery, instrumentation and control etc. but it doesn't mean we will be exempt from anything. As far as I know, you're only eligible for the specialised route if you have a engineering degree?

              Things we learn in September will be specifically for marine engineering and I think we've only touched the basics to be honest. Hopefully it will give us a head start and best of luck!

                The specialized fast track course is only a degree thing, what i think hes meaning is if you have done an HNC math unit why do you have to redo it.

                theres also some interesting bits of you can use other qualifications to keep the MCA happy but if you dont do the whole program at your college you wont complete the HNC that they wish to award you. (something similar cropped up with me for the FD)

                Bulman, Im not really sure what you mean about decki stuff? if you mean nav and all that then nope. if you mean the equipment that fills th ebridge then yes but not untill halfway through the course. Unless they move it around.
                there isnt that much PLC stuff in it was a few practical sessions of basic programming. as in reality your not going to be programing a plc, it will be maintaining and trouble shooting someone elses program. Saying that for my Project im making a network of PLC's that are reasonably fun and the college will have that for other people to play with once im gone.
