I just received the new stickers after passing my first assistant engineer exam. I looked over the documents and noticed that they sent a “Second engineer officer” endorsement.
I also noticed that the “First assistant engineer” sticker/document is a national only document.
I know that the engine ratings overseas are different. First engineer = Chief engineer, Second engineer = First assistant engineer, Third engineer = Second assistant engineer and Fourth engineer = Third assistant engineer.
I think this means that they sent me a “second engineer officer = first assistant engineer international” and a first engineer national so I really have no restrictions on my license they are just conforming to the new international standards.
Am I correct or is something wrong here?
