Electro-Technical Officer Competency Record - Second Edition
This record book is published by the MNTB and approved by the MCA. It is for use by experienced seafarers to provide documentary evidence of service and competence as an ETO, or in carrying out the functions of an ETO on board ship, in order to apply for an ETO Certificate of Competency.
This publication sets out the onboard training tasks required for the Electro-Technical Officer Certificate of Competency and includes details of practical and funding support.
It summarises the Marine National Occupational Standards (NOS) that must be achieved and for each standard lists the required knowledge and understanding and the outcomes of effective performance.
It also lists the competences that should be demonstrated when applying for an ETO CoC. These are grouped under broad areas of activity and referenced to the NOS as follows: safety, elecro-technical operations, marine engineering and electro-technical maintenance, and operational management.
This Officer Competency Record (OCR) is published by the Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) and approved by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA). It is for use by experienced seafarers to provide documentary evidence of service and competence as an ETO, or in carrying out the functions of an ETO on board ship, in order to apply for an ETO Certificate of Competency.
On completion, the OCR will provide evidence that the experience gained on-board meets MCA requirements as part of the process of evaluating competence for the issue of a certificate of competency. Sections 2 and 4 must be completed for MCA Notice of Eligibility purposes.
Section 2 provides a record of your existing certification, your sea service record and the specimen signatures of Chief Engineer Officers and Ship Superintendents authorised to sign the competences. The MCA needs to be sure that the evidence of signed off competences is authentic and, for this reason, those who sign them must enter their details and sample signatures in the appropriate table in this section. Only competences authenticated in this way will be acceptable to the MCA.
Section 3 contains the Marine National Occupational Standards (NOS) that relate to the competences for which you are providing evidence. The NOS are statements of the knowledge and expected performance, which can be used for information and as reference, to help determine when you have satisfactorily demonstrated the competences covered in section 4.
You should be familiar with the competences and associated duties which are to be undertaken. You should complete all competences, unless the ship type on which sea service was completed or the nature of the trade in which the ship was engaged prevented this, in which case any omissions will have to be justified to the MCA before entry to the oral examination for Electro-Technical certification. Each competence must be signed and dated by the Chief Engineer, or Ship Superintendent.
MCA requirements are that candidates for the ETO certificate of competency must have approved seagoing service of not less than 12 months service in the last five years as ETO or carrying out the functions of an ETO on board ship.
