Entry to this qualification is at the discretion of the centre.
You will be required to have completed an Advanced Certificate (Adv Cert) in Marine Engineering or alternatively, hold an MCA recognised Engineering Officer of the Watch (EOOW) Certificate of Competency (CoC) which is comparable to the 96 credits of the Adv Cert award. In this case, the College will undertake a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) exercise, which is the process for recognising previous learning that has taken place in informal, formal or non-formal contexts: for example, in the workplace and through life experiences.
Once recognised through this process, prior learning can be used to gain credit or exemption for qualifications. This process can also be used to recognise any additional units you have undertaken, of supporting documentation is provided. Please refer to MSN 1857 for CoC requirements.
Modules and Assessment
Teaching and Learning Methods
Following enrolment to a set of modules, your teaching and learning will be supported by learning materials which have been created by the blended learning team. These resources provide an outline of each module, a recommended reading list and provide details of the module syllabus and learning outcomes. Interactive resources are utilised on our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) including, but not limited to, Marine Notices, Power Points, useful web links to industry publications, Excel spreadsheets, video tutorials, clinics, and e-books.
You will submit work using the VLE, both formative and summative assessments, where appropriate.
Any practical activities can be supported with on-site attendance, as identified in your Individual Learning Plan (ILP) or during subsequent progression meetings. Practical activities are not mandatory, but further enhance your learning experience. These activities are often a reflection of industrial activities, and can therefore be undertaken in an industrial setting.
Industry Placement and Field Trips
Other Costs and Equipment Needed
