  • Any recently qualified 2nd eng

    Hello,

    If anyone on here has recently qualified as a 2nd eng, or understands what is required to obtain the license after completing the HNC route could you give me some advice on what I need other than sea time?

    How long you have to go back to college for, subjects to be studied, courses to do etc.

    I've contacted the Glasgow college twice (over a month ago two weeks apart) but they have not replied.

    Great!

    Cheers,

    J.

    It's not my place to run the boat
    the fog horn I can't blow.

    It's not my place to say just where
    the boat's allowed to go

    It's not my right to dock the boat
    or even clang the bell

    But let the damn thing
    start to sink AND SEE WHO CATCHES HELL!

    It used to be that hnc gave you exemptions on your seconds and hnd for chiefs...... So you should just need EK's and Orals.........try asking Shields college they are better at answering mails
    Trust me I'm a Chief.

    Views expressed by me are mine and mine alone.
    Yes I work for the big blue canoe company.
    No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

        You will need to apply for a notice of eligibility from the MCA, the application form lists what you need to provide them with.
        Go out, do stuff

          Ah yes of course, should have twigged onto that with having to do the same for my 4th ticket. I'll have a look.

          Thanks.

            When I was at college they didn't do the HNC route. It was brought in the phase after so I can't comment on whether you have them but you need a letter stating your exemptions from college anyway for your NOE. Also, if I remember correctly, you could still have passed your certificate and failed one or two subjects. This is important as it's not the HND/HNC that matters but the certain subjects. These are nav arc, electrics, some kind of math. I think there's about 4.

            I'm going back to college next week to start my seconds as I've put it off too long so at the minute I'm well read on applying lol
