How do I obtain a Letter of Initial Assessment?

Question:
How do I obtain a Letter of Initial Assessment?
Answer:

Engineer candidates with previous engineering experience (even if it’s non-maritime related) or previous sea time can apply to the UK MCA for a Letter of Initial Assessment.  They will require details of your qualifying sea service, engineering qualifications and any craft apprenticeship served, together with any course certificates (first aid, fire fighting, sea survival, and so on). This letter will effectively map out your career progression, listing course details and required sea service from your current level up to a Chief Engineer certificate of competency. To be assessed you must download and submit the relevant application form.
