CoP Rating Revalidation


This course is designed for holders of an AMSA Certificates of Proficiency as Rating (Integrated Rating, Able Seaman, Deck Rating or Engine Room Rating) who do not hold the qualifying sea service and therefore need to undertake the full short courses in order to demonstrate continued competence.

August 2016 Update: AMSA have advised that there is still a large number of seafarers yet to apply to have their certificates revalidated beyond 31 December 2016, and to avoid their certificates becoming invalid, AMSA strongly encourages certificate holders to not leave this until the last moment. Certificate holders should also be aware that for certificates expiring on 31 December 2016, revalidating in advance of this date will deliver a new expiry date five years from 31 December 2016, not from the date of application. 

Please refer to the following AMSA information for further details
