The MCA have just confirmed that the long awaited Master (Workboat) < 500gt unlimited STCW Certificate of Competency will be published during Seawork. This CoC has been drawn up after long consultation between the MCA and the NWA and will now give us the potential for this CoC holder to command a Workboat up to 500gt worldwide. Roger Towner, Head of MCA Seafarer Standards branch who has worked closely with us, will be presenting this CoC at the MCA seminar on Tuesday lunchtime at Seawork.
