What are the types of endorsement available?

 

There are two levels of training for tanker cargo operation: ‘basic’ and ‘advanced’. The basic level is divided into two training programmes; ‘Oil and Chemical’, and ‘Liquefied Gas’. The advanced level is divided into 3 separate programmes; Oil, Chemical and Liquefied Gas.

 

Who needs what level of DCE?

 

If you are an officer or rating assigned specific duties or responsibilities related to cargo or cargo equipment on tankers, you must complete basic training for tanker operations before taking up such duties. This training must be in accordance with STCW Convention Regulations V/1-1 and V/1-2. If you are a Master, Chief Engineer, Chief Mate, Second Engineer or any person with immediate responsibility for loading, discharging, care in transit, handling of cargo, tank cleaning or other cargo-related operations on tankers, you must complete advanced training for tanker operations in accordance with STCW Convention Regulations V/1-1 and V/1-2 before taking up such duties. Those with “immediate responsibility” will normally include all deck officers and may

include other seafarers who could be placed in charge of a cargo operation (e.g. deck/cargo engineer, pumpman, and bosun). If you are an Engineer Officer of the Watch serving on tankers, you are required to have a Certificate of Competency (CoC) endorsed for basic tanker training specific to the type of

tanker on which you are serving.
