Upgrading Studies Engineer

The Department of Upgrading Studies conducts courses for each of the following certificate of competency:

  1. Officer in Charge of Engineering Watch (STCW III/1 – Operational Level).
  2. Marine Second Engineer (STCW III/2 – Management Level).
  3. Marine Chief Engineer (STCW III/2 – Management Level).
  4. Electro – Technical officers (STCW III/6 – Operational Level).
  5. Electro – Technical Ratings (STCW III/7- Support Level).
  6. Able seafarer engine (STCW III/5 – Support Level).

All upgrading courses are held twice a year for each certificate according to the academic calendar, except for marine chief Engineer which is held four times a year.

The educational aim of these courses is to conduct a general review of the different subjects dealt with in the examination papers to prepare the learners before sitting for the examinations.

The courses required for the certificates of competency are divided into two parts, the first part courses are examined by the Academy, while the second part are examined by the Examination Center run by Jordan Maritime Authority.
