We are pleased to confirm that the final assessment criteria for the revised Workboat Apprenticeship has now been agreed by the IfA and subsequently published on their website.
Following the MCA's decision to allow holders of the Master <500GT Workboat CoC or Class 1 Fishing CoC to be issued with a full STCW <500GT Master, Near Coastal CoC upon completion of a combined Cargo and Stability module, please be advised that the Scottish Maritime Academy are running this module in August.
