Higher National Diploma (HND) in Marine Engineering Professional Body recognition
The BTEC Higher Nationals in Marine Engineering have been developed in conjunction with Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) with career progression and recognition by professional bodies in mind. It is essential that learners gain the maximum benefit from their programme of study. Consequently we have added value to this qualification by acquiring recognition from the Engineering Council’s UK-SPEC regulations requirement.
Further details of professional body recognition and exemptions for BTEC Higher Nationals are given in the publication BTEC Professional Recognition which is available on Edexcel’s website (www.edexcel.org.uk).
Higher National Diploma (HND) in Navigation Industry and regulatory recognition
The BTEC Higher National Diploma in Nautical Science has been developed in conjunction with the Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB), Maritime and Coast guard Agency (MCA) and the International Association of Maritime Institutions (IAMI), in order to meet MCA requirements for professional certification. It is essential that learners gain the maximum benefits from their programme of study, and consequently value has been added to this HND by acquiring recognition from the MCA as meeting the academic knowledge requirements for the MCA certificates of Competency at Officer of the Watch and Chief Mate level and hence the requirement in the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) concention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping 1995 (STCW 95). The units required to meet MCA requirements for certificates of competency are shown in the table at Annex B.
