Chief Mate


This course is a continuation in the career of a Deck Officer in the merchant shipping navy leading to the issue of a Certificate of Competence as a Chief Mate. The training provided is at management level and learners attending this course are expected to dedicate a lot of time to their studies and to wear a merchant marine uniform whilst undergoing training ashore. The Centre for Maritime studies boasts a good reputation for discipline and all Officers are expected to abide by a Code of Conduct whilst attending the Chief Mate Course and to actively participate in organised events. Practical STCW ancillary courses, namely medical care and radar navigation including simulation exercises, are also provided as compulsory short courses for the Chief Mate Certificate of Competency
