The Engine Room Rating program provides training to those who would like to have a sea-going career but have little or no previous marine experience. This 10-week entry level course provides the knowledge and skills required to understand the specific duties and responsibilities relating to the safe operation and servicing of machinery in the engine room of a vessel.
This training course is intended to prepare the student to challenge the Engine Room Rating exam and is designed to meet the Transport Canada standards as per TP10933. As such, Transport Canada requires that students maintain an attendance standard of 90% during the course and a pass mark of 60% for the final course mark.
Successful completion of the program counts as three months of sea time towards your ERR Certificate of Competency, which is issued by Transport Canada. After completing the ERR course at Holland College, you will require an additional 90 days of sea time onboard a vessel. To obtain your ERR Certificate of Competency from Transport Canada, you must submit your training certificates from Holland College, your Statement of Sea Service (documenting three months of sea time) and successful completion of the ERR exam with Transport Canada.
The Engine Room Rating Certificate of Competency allows you to work as part of a team during shipboard activities including the following:
Vessel Personnel with Security Responsibilities (VPWSR) is not included as part of the Engine Room Rating course; however, it can be included in your training package for an additional $600. We strongly recommend taking this 2-day course as it is a requirement for many shipping companies.
Due to the international nature of sea-going careers, it is also advisable to have a valid passport, but it is not required as part of this course.
