Ive just renewed my ENG 1 medical which is STCW / with a MCA doctor and that was only 80 - it lasts 24 months.....! It includes, Blood Pressure, Urine, Hearing, Eyesight and a few other pieces..... it is internationally recognised, and is v useful if your doing cross channel and got into any sticky situations...

Tip for anyone doing the PPR, if you know the 148 pages of MGN 280 you be fine.
And do the mock test gives a good idea of what there looking for.

Not sure about any set fee Doug, but simply pay what he demands. Cost seems similar to the ML5, but done more often.

On Doug's instructions, we've done a bit of research into this in the office. The fee is laid down in Law by the Merchant Shipping (Fees) regulations, and can be found in Part 3.

It's currently 80, but that is a maximum limit; there's nothing to stop a Doctor charging less, they're just not allowed to charge more.

You can find the relevant legislation here: The Merchant Shipping (Fees) Regulations 2006

RYA have produced a book PPR G105 very good that accompanies the course and great for those of you who get frustrated by websites with pop up menus and drop down pages.
Congrats Ruari on getting a great score on the test by the way.
Cheers
Tim

Definitely agree with you on this Tim. We had a chap telephone us on Monday who wanted to do the PPR course, but struggled with reliability on his internet connection (he lives on one of the Orkney Islands).

He's in the process of coding a boat, so is familiar with MGN280, bought G105 (Commercial Regulations - Small Vessels) from the RYA shop, and as soon as he signed up to the PPR course, he went straight through the mock papers and into the exams - 100% on both.

Ideal for those who are put off by negotiating the internet, or want to do a bit of reading around the subject. You can get the new book direct from the RYA:



Buy RYA Commercial Regulations - Small Vessels at the RYA Shop

So... You can sit an unsupervised online exam and there is a book available endorsed by the examining body available.

There are no Grandfather rights and only selected MCA tickets qualify for an exemption

But it's not a money making exercise? I believe them - not!

Oh those evil people, producing a book that might help students learn the subject!

There are no grandfather rights, why would there be? It's because most grandfathers don't know this stuff that it has been added to the commercial endorsement process for everyone.

And yes selected MCA CoCs do qualify for an exemption, guess which ones?. It's the ones that have covered this already.
