CoC - not completed training
Issue or Revalidation of a UK Certificate of Competency where a seafarer is unable to complete the updating/refresher training requirements but needs to join a vessel
For any seafarer that is unable to complete some or all of the updating refresher requirements for the issue or revalidation of a CoC:
Please send a scanned application to the MCA*.
You will be issued with a Temporary CoC valid for a period of 6 months, providing that you can meet all the other requirements.
You will also receive a letter from the MCA extending the validity of the training that you were unable to update/refresh.
You should accompany your application with:
• Scanned copies of your original STCW Safety Training Certificate that will no longer be valid; and
• The applicable self-declaration for the STCW training that requires updating/refreshing from MSN 1865 (annex B,C,D and E).
Where STCW requires a standard to be met prior to the issue of a new CoC, the MCA will be unable to issue the CoC until this standard has been achieved.
