    Hi NNA

    Just looking at the Warsash website they have a course under their superyacht academy for this but it may be a bit of work?

    Link is here: http://www.warsashsuperyachtacademy....unlimited.aspx

    Superyacht engineers who are looking to progress to unlimited certification need to have achieved a Level 3 or above yacht engineering qualification. There are two clear pathways to unlimited certification, with experienced seafarers following a Higher National Certificate (HNC) and Higher National Diploma (HND) pathway, while Officer Cadets complete Foundation Degree or HND programmes.
    Every student then needs to pass appropriate written examinations in applied heat and mechanics, marine electro-technology and naval architecture, general engineering knowledge and motor and/or steam engineering knowledge. They must also pass the Chief Engineer MCA oral examination.
