Stcw codes

were can I find information on the STCW code section A II/3
operation level

200 ton mate international assessments, and can they be done on a simulator??

uscg web site is of little help in this unless someone can point out a link that I missed

I don’t think there are any.

[I]STCW only applies to Mariners employed on vessels [B]greater than 200 Gross [/B]Register Tons (Domestic Tonnage), or 500 Gross Tons (ITC Tonnage), operating seaward of the boundary lines specified in Title 46 CFR Part 7. [/I]

Mate 200 ton [I][B][I]international[/I][/B][/I]

Yes, see attached checklist.

Many of the assessments can be done at a school, and/or in a simulator. Approved courses can be found HERE, and all of the assessments that each school can conduct are listed.

If you’ve taken Radar Observer (Unlimited), you’ve already done a bunch. If you’ve taken ARPA, you’ve already done a bunch. So on and so forth. You’ll be able to figure out exactly which ones you need by perusing the above mentioned documents.

Good luck!
