Senior Engineer - Unlimited

Home > Courses > Engineering > Senior engineer

Courses relating to this certificate:

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 and general engineering knowledge. They must also pass the Chief Engineer MCA oral examination.
