JPMA gains approval to run MCA Engineering courses online

Crew training specialist JPMA has announced that it has been granted accreditation to take its Small Vessel & Yacht Engineering modules online after working with the MCA to make it possible over recent weeks.

The following courses are now available to book:

  • SV 2nd Engineer Auxiliary Equipment I
  • SV 2nd Engineer Marine Diesel Engineering
  • SV 2nd Engineer Operational Procedures & Basic Hotel Services
  • Y3/SV Statutory & Operational Requirements
  • SV Auxiliary Equipment II
  • SV Applied Marine Engineering

As the courses are running online, there will not be a written exam at the end of the course. The MCA & SQA have looked at every possible way they could offer the exams online, but there is no solution. Written exams will be available as soon as the lockdown regulations are lifted, and JPMA will ensure that each student is able to access the written exam as quickly and simply as possible.

It is also offering Deck & Engineering oral preparation and some 1-2-1 tutoring online.

For seafarers who are in the middle of their studies, and don’t know when their oral exam will be, or for seafarers who are planning to do their modules when lockdown is over but are struggling with a certain subject, JPMA is on hand to offer assistance.

Its team of instructors are available to offer hourly, half or full day 1-2-1 sessions.
