Student in engineering workshopUnless a candidate is exempted by the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) due to previous industrial experience/qualifications, an MNTB Workshop Skills Training programme has to be undertaken and passed before initial certification as Engineer Officer of the Watch (EOOW) can be gained.
The training programme covers all marine engineering workshop skills elements, including use and care of hand tools, measuring equipment, drilling machines, centre lathes, vertical milling machines, off-hand grinding machines and welding equipment. The programme then advances to cover maintenance skills, assembly skills and electrical/electronic practice.
This training programme is normally undertaken as part of one of the EOOW Unlimited certification programmes.
