I have a Y3 / Y2 CoC, can I convert this to a full Merchant Navy CoC to enable me to work on the larger yachts?

Answer:

This is possible but will not be easy! It will involve you spending 540 hours in an engineering workshop to complete the tasks in the MNTB training book. You will probably need to gain seatime on a MN vessel. In addition you may have to pass the four academic modules plus the MCA Engineering Knowledge (Motor Propulsion) Management Level examination.

Before attempting this you should apply for a Letter of Initial Assessment from the MCA so you fully understand the magnitude of this task. If working on the biggest yachts is your ultimate goal then the easiest way of achieving this is via a Merchant Navy engineering cadetship.
