There are 3 ways in which you can apply for a Chief Mate <3000gt (Yachts) CoC: 

 

1. If you already have an OOW <3000gt (Yachts) CoC:

Download the application form from the MCA website. Fill this in, and include in your application the following original certificates:

Your OOW CoC

Advanced Fire Fighting Certificate

Proficiency in Medical First Aid Aboard Ship 

RYA Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased certificate and practical CoC (commercially endorsed) or IYT Master of Yachts 200 tonnes (Unlimited) Certificate (you don't need to have a shorebased Yachtmaster Ocean certificate if your Yachtmaster CoC was issued before 31st July 2003.)

Human Element Leadership & Management (Management Level) certificate

ECDIS certificate (after 1st January 2014, and if this wasn't submitted with your OOW CoC application)

You will then be issued with the Chief Mate (Yachts) CoC

 

2. If you have an NoE to sit the OOW <3000gt (Yachts) oral exam:

Once you have successfully completed the OOW oral exam, you are required to return the pass NoE to the MCA in Southampton for issue of your OOW CoC. At this time, you can enclose the following certificates and the MCA will issue a Chief Mate CoC instead of an OOW:

Advanced Fire Fighting Certificate

Proficiency in Medical First Aid Aboard Ship

RYA Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased certificate and practical CoC (commercially endorsed) or IYT Master of Yachts 200 tonnes (Unlimited) Certificate (you don't need to have a shorebased Yachtmaster Ocean certificate if your Yachtmaster CoC was issued before 31st July 2003.)

Human Element Leadership & Management (Operational & Management Level) certificates (as the 3 day course is required for those candidates not already holding an OOW CoC, both HELM courses must be done at this level)

ECDIS certificate (after 1st January 2014, and if this wasn't submitted with your OOW CoC application)

 

3. If you do not yet have the NoE for the OOW <3000gt (Yachts):

When you are applying for the NoE for OOW, you can enclose in your application the certificates required for the Chief Mate upgrade:

Advanced Fire Fighting Certificate

Proficiency in Medical First Aid Aboard Ship

RYA Yachtmaster Ocean shorebased certificate and practical CoC (commercially endorsed) or IYT Master of Yachts 200 tonnes (Unlimited) Certificate (you don't need to have a shorebased Yachtmaster Ocean certificate if your Yachtmaster CoC was issued before 31st July 2003.)

Human Element Leadership & Management (Operational & Management Level) certificates (as the 3 day course is required for those candidates not already holding an OOW CoC, both HELM courses must be done at this level)

ECDIS certificate (after 1st January 2014)

You will be issued with an NoE for OOW <3000gt, but once you have passed the oral exam you will be issued with a Chief Mate <3000gt (Yachts) CoC.
