Marine Training, Examination and Certification


The Marine Training, Examination and Certification section is responsible for the development and maintenance of Regulations, Examinations, and Training Standards for the Certification of Seafarers. This section also issues Certificates of Competency to seafarers after they have successfully completed all prerequisites and examinations appropriate to the level of certification. Comprehensive records are maintained on all seafarers who are candidates or recipients of the aforementioned certificates.
