Do you require a UK MCA Flag Approved Certificate?

If you are not sure which course to take, you must check with your company before continuing.
Marlins cannot change certificates or provide refunds if you purchase or take the wrong course.

If you purchase the UK MCA approved course, you will only buy the STCW training course, not the assessment. You will receive a unique ‘Proof of Study Receipt’ to show you have taken the course. Then you must travel to a Marlins Approved Test Centre to take the STCW Security assessment under exam conditions. You may also need to pay a separate fee to the Approved Test Centre to take the assessment.

If you purchase the Isle of Man or Liberia Flag approved course, you can sit the final assessment online, immediately after studying the material. This is included in the cost. You do not need to visit a Marlins Approved Test Centre.
