Subject : Qualifying Sea service for MEO Class IV (operational level) C.O.C. on ships plying in near coastal voyages including coastal vessel and OSV's

Reference: Instruction to Examiners Circular No.077 dated 04.10.2004

As per the Meta manual Vol I Section M - III/9, 7.3 period served in NCV ships shall count at two-thirds rate 'as qualifying sea service' for certificates, provided that the class service and the power of the ship complies with the requirements as specified in Table 3. To encourage the Trainee Engineers to join these vessels, so that more number of candidates can qualify to sit for MEO Class IV Part B examinations and thereby mitigate the problem of shortage of Engineer Officers availability to Indian flag vessels, Chief Examiner of Engineers has decided that the services performed on such vessels shall be considered at full rate as 'qualifying sea service' for MEO Class IV Part B examination (Operational Level) as follows

1] Vessels of 500 G.T. and above having propulsion power of 750 K.W. or more. Sea Service acceptable at full rate for MEO Class IV Part B and Alternative Training Scheme (ATS) Candidates.
2] Small vessels (e.g. ocean going tugs) of less then 500 G.T. but having propulsion power of 750 K.W. or more In addition to NCV Candidates, Sea Service acceptable at full rate for Alternative Training Scheme (ATS) Candidates.

This issues with the approval of Chief Examiner of Engineers.
