  • Progression as an Eto ?

    I understand the clear progression as an engineering officer but how does this work in terms of being an ETO. Do you have to spend a certain amount of time at sea and complete orals to progress ?

    At present, the two fd ETO courses lead to a non watch keeping CoC which is assessed by an oral exam. Once you qualify there are currently no higher CoC's to aim for and progression is based on experience and reputation I suppose.

    Higher salaries can be achieved by specialising in areas such as hazardous electrics which could get you work in the oil exploration and production sector, or learning how to maintain DP ships in the offshore sector etc.

    Im currently working as a junior ETO for an oil company (1 stripe) and they plan to send me to the different ship types in the fleet to gain experience for my first few trips then I will likely be promoted to full ETO (3 stripes) and take charge of a ship. Some ship have an intermediate 2nd ETO rank (2 stripes).

    I wasn't sponsored by an oil company, so progression might be a few trips quicker for oil company ETO cadets.

    The cruise ships have 3rd, 2nd, 1st and Chief/Staff ETOs.

              Dont think watchkeeping is a requirement - no mention of it in the DfT bumpf:

                I'm a idiot as you may already know, was getting mixed up with the CoC and oow, and have no clue where I got this watch keeping from.

                  There is something about it in Nautilus Dec issue but as they use flash and neither my iphone or tablet since it has kit Kat can access it I can't tell you what's in it. Might be something in there.
                  Think Nautilus ought to upgrade to HTML 5 soon though.

                    yeah, they've pretty much reprinted the mgn which somebody linked to on this forum, basically cadets past and present on the old hybrid engineering with electrics add on are also eligible to sit the eto coc oral, there is also information on how current etos can complete a taskbook and sit the oral ready for 2017.

                    They also mention a higher SETO CoC (UK only), as the ETO CoC was to start with, but it may be adopted by the wider world in the future.
