I got an e-mail from the HR dept today and was told that the QMED positions on the Ocean Phoenix were filled but they may still be interested in me for a “Deck Engineer” position?
What does a Deck Engineer do on a 680ft fish processor? I’m assuming working on the normal deck equipment like windlass’ etc. and for the nets and fishing gear, spools, cranes etc… ???
Wouldn’t this still be considered a “QMED” position and does sailing in this position count as QMED time as far as my MMC?
My MMC QMED is endorsed as a “Deck ‘Engine’ Mechanic” but not Deck ‘Engineer’?? Whats the diff?
