Letter of Initial Assessment

Yacht Engineer Letter of Initial Assessment

If you are a yacht engineer candidate and you have gained previous engineering experience (even if it’s non maritime related) or previous sea service, you may be able to apply to the MCA for a Letter of Initial Assessment. The MCA will look at your existing qualifications and experience and assess at which level you may enter the yachting certification process. Once this has been determined, you will need to undertake the relevant engineering modules, ancillary courses and oral exam.
