ab deck nz

The Integrated Rating (IR) certificate corresponds with certificates issued under regulations II/5 and III/5 of the International Convention on the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended in 2010 (STCW). With this certificate, you can perform the functions and duties of - deck crew member on ships of any gross tonnage in any operating area or crew member in a manned engine room or periodically unmanned engine room on passenger or non-passenger ships of any propulsion power in any operating area.

As the IR certificate requires you to have your Able Seafarer Deck (AB Deck) and Able Seafarer Engine (AB Engine) certificates and associated ancillaries, no additional training, sea service or examination are required. From IR, you can progress to Watchkeeper Deck and Marine Engineer Class 3 (MEC 3).
