  • Dual ticket

    Just looking for some advice/pointers.

    I was considering trying to get enough Sea time to be able to sit my Engineer OOW for Motor and Steam.

    I am currently in 3rd Phase at College and due to go back to Sea at the end of October, I return to College next year around the middle of May. Currently as I understand it I only need another 2 weeks or so to have enough Watchkeeping time for the Motor side of things, however I would need to do minimum 4 months on a Steam ship to qualify for that ticket too.

    I was wondering if anybody had any advice on the benefits of sitting your first ticket for both Motor and Steam. Does it make the oral exam much harder and does it make it difficult to complete everything in your training record book to the standard required,e.g. getting all the tasks signed off?

    I know it is a possibility with my company that I could pursue and I imagine it would give me an extra employability edge when I hopefully qualify.
