Course Description

This OOW Orals course enables candidates to achieve Officer of the Watch (Unlimited) certification by the MCA Oral examination route. Candidates will receive tuition and guided study in preparation for the MCA Oral examination.

Course Content

The OOW Oral 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, Marine Instruments, Publications Legislation, Rule of the road, Buoyage etc. Although presentation of other topics may be arranged where the whole group should benefit. Tutorials will be delivered as formal lectures and/or demonstrations as appropriate, supplemented by group discussion, question and answer sessions and directed study.

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.
