Course Description

This course is suitable for someone who is on a permanent rotation working on ships and cannot attend college in a 4 week contionous stretch. Candidates will receive tuition and guided study in preparation for the MCA Oral examination through blended learning.

Course Content

The course is primarily concerned with preparing candidates to answer the MCA Examiner’s questions based on studies previously undertaken. Tutorials are mainly devoted to Seamanship, Magnetic Compass and Shipmaster’s Business & Law, although presentation of other topics may be arranged where the whole group should benefit. Tutorials will be delivered as online distance learning with formal lectures and/or demonstrations as appropriate, supplemented by group discussion, question and answer sessions and directed study during the candidates time off from work. Candidates are also encouraged to make full use of other learning resources, including the on-site nautical library, Internet access, training software and feedback from previous candidates.  Each candidate gets a free software “COSOFT” and a mock orals at the end of the course.  This helps them repair any damage before going for the actual orals.
