    Office: Liverpool
    Examiner: Mr Lewis
    Date: September 2014
    Level: EOOW
    Start to finish: 35 minutes

    The exam at Liverpool is held for EOOWs only on certain Wednesdays, it's more for higher level orals. The examiner is young and friendly, the centre is beachfront in a quiet area with toilets in the car park. Good for some relaxing last few minutes (especially if you're sh***ing yourself) before you go in.

    When you go in you sign in at reception and wait in a waiting room which has magazines all over the place, the examiner will come out and shake your hand. He then leads you to the exam room, which is just an office with a sea view; jug of water and glasses, a piece of blank paper and a pencil/ruler on the table. The exam itself was in the format of a friendly chat, he shows great interest in your job and ship.

    Went into exam room and gave him my TRB/Discharge book, he checked them and asked about my ships and where I sailed from/to. Replied Ferries and Dover-Calais, Liverpool-Dublin.

      Office: Glasgow
      Date: June 2016
      Length: 25 Minutes
      Level: EOOW

      The Glasgow office gets extremely busy the same time every year, my advice would be study as soon as you come back from phase 4 and try to get somebody's cancellation appointment, I was able to book my oral only 5 days in advance.

      I'd say I was lucky with my examination, he could have asked me a lot more than he did, it was disappointing in a sense after studying all those months for the exam.

      Standard day, I arrived about 15 minutes (it feels much longer when you're waiting) before my appointment, sat on a chair in the lobby and the examiner came out, introduced himself and shook my hand. We went into the examination room where I gave him my documents as well as TRB and we had a chat first about my sea experience, the majority of my cadet time was spent on AHTS vessels. He showed me a diagram which threw me off for a few seconds, turned out it was the fire escape plan of the building.

      • Tell me about your last ship?
      • Can you go into detail about the engines?
      • How many gearboxes did you have? (My last ship as a cadet had 4 main engines)
      • Did you have 2 engine rooms? (DP related, ship in question was an AHTS)
      • Draw me the jacket water cooling system on your last ship.
      • What was the in/out temp from the engine?
      • What were you testing for in the JWCS? What levels are you looking for? What treatments did you do?
      • Why do we want slightly alkaline water?
      • Okay now tell me how you would hand over a watch?
      • You’re on watch and you get an OMD alarm at 10pm, what are your actions?
      • What was the special requirement for operating the OWS in a special area?
      • What were the general requirements if you were pumping bilge overboard through the OWS?
      • What was the sulphur content of your Diesel oil?
      • What are current the SOx regulations?
      • Not including FiFi, what LSA did you have?
      • What is the frequency of an EPIRB?
      • How does an EPIRB work?
      • Was there anything special about the life buoys on the bridge wings?

          Location: Southampton
          Level: EOOW
          Date: 13 June 2017
          Examiner: Prasad Panicker
          Duration: 35 minutes

          Turned up for my oral 30 minutes early and was sat in waiting area for 10 minutes before the examiner came and called me.

          Once in the interview room, he made me feel relaxed and allowed me to remove my suit jacket due to the heat and he asked for my passport and discharge book (I had my TRB and workbook in my bag next to me but these were never asked for) He told me my oral would take anywhere between 30-60 minutes depending on the 'journey I took him on'

          We talked about about which ships I had been on and machinery (2 diesel electric passenger ships, twin prop, boilers)

          The oral then started:

          Taking over a watch - what I would check, what information I'd want to receive from outgoing engineer, emphasis was on records (log book, ORB, standing orders)

          Boilers - Why we have boilers? I had hybrid boilers so he asked me to explain the working principle of those and then safety features and blowing down gauge glass - further questioned why after blowing down you open the water cock before the steam cock.

          Principle of EGB

          Boiler water tests and why

          Sparks coming out of the funnel, why and actions.

          Generator trips - asked me to list reasons the generator may slow down or shut down, quizzed me on why and what reverse power was

          Why you have a turbocharger and how it works, does it go directly from t/c to engine, why do we have a charge air cooler

          Fuel rack is stuck, engine is overspeeding, what do you do?

          Refrigeration system - basic refrigeration cycle, state of refrigerant at outlet of each component, how is heat removed from a cold space, how does the system start and stop, how do we remove air from the system

          Fuel pump and injector - draw and explain their operation

          Air start explosion - how are they caused?

          Safety features of start air line

          Emergency generator requirements - location, starting time, starting methods, how long it must run for, what it supplies

          Fixed firefighting, how water mist works, how CO2 works, what does it cover, how to avoid accidental release, where can it be set off from

          Fresh water generation, how flash evaporators and reverse osmosis works

          COSWP enclosed space requirements - what are you testing for? What are the limits?

          Are you happy to be EOOW?

          (Didn't asked for any typical system drawings, I offered to draw for the gauge glass drill to aid my explanation, was asked to draw fuel pump and injector and refrigeration system)

          EDIT: Just to add, he then stamped my NoE with a pass and talked me through how to apply for my CoC. If anybody has any questions, feel free to PM.

              discussed where I went wrong, and how to improve them (Also said don't go down rabbit holes - especially the bit about excitation, which I couldn't explain well), he said not to worry, that I can resit, my fundamentals weren't bad, showed me how to fill in NOE for my second attempt.

              -(Second attempt) “Alright, that's enough, you've passed.”
              The examiner explained what happens next, how to go about getting everything in order for certification, and invited my questions.

              I'd like to add my thanks to those on, I found it to be an excellent resource, I've taken more from it than I've contributed, and to Thanks to the examiners at the MCA, and to the teachers and instructors at Warsash.

              Good luck!

                Duration: 70 mins

                Examiner logged in at 9AM on the dot (I was getting worried as I’d be sat starring at a blank Microsoft Teams screen since 08:40)
                I.D check – driving licence
                Previous experience, talked about the different classes of vessel I have sailed on, he said I can talk about either when answering his questions, just use whichever I think will give the best answer.
                Engine performance, how do you know the engine is operating correctly?
                Talk through bunkering, from start to finish – BDN and analysis
                At 09:12, he disappeared, cue me frantically calling every Marine Office which were all still closed, he reconnected at 09:23 (the longest 11 minutes of my life)
                Continued talking about fuel, spoke about cat fines, why is sulphur content important?

                A very brief overview of my oral, the above are the initial questions he asked, he went into depth about most of them but I was able to avoid digging myself a hole. The entire oral was very much just a relaxed conversation which was fantastic as I was extremely nervous.

                Feel free to ask any questions, I'll be happy to help.
