[QUOTE=Gordon;235814] Yes re the medical - either an ML5 form completed by own GP or an ENG1 completed by an MCA approved doctor...
Ah you learn well grasshopper,
get soem if not all of your training paid for under resettlement - well worth asking your resettlement officer for info as I have heard rumoured that things like Yachmaster can be (part or wholly) funded as a resettlement course...
Gordon is giving good advice here! it's worth contacting one of the premier commercial training organisations about what they reccomend Falke Nutec are excellent and did my OPITO FRC and STCW Coxswans course they are however V expensive but they can open the doors to a lot of work.
I get more work from my STCW and OPITO tickets than I do from my RYA tickets It sometimes pays as much as 3 times the rate that you can get as an RYA commercial driver.
It depends on exactly what sort of work you want, long term away from homes or just a couple of days a week
