is there any alternative training that qualifies a mariner for his TOAR in lieu of on board an employers vessel?
If NMC policy letter 04-03 is still in effect and you are rated STCW/OICNW or higher…some of the OICNW assessments are suppose to “cross over”…if this is still true, while the OCINW assessments will not give you a competed TOAR they take a significant “bite” out of it…jmho I don’t feel/believe that the actual TOAR manuevering assessments can or should be “waived” in leu of simulation training.
hope this is of help and good luck!
