MNTB Electro-Technical Officer Competency Record 

The MNTB has produced the Electro-Technical Officer Competency Record (ETO CR) so that seafarers can demonstrate the sea time competence requirements as part of the MCA Electro-Technical Certificate of Competency. 

The ETO CR includes the arrangements for Electro-Technical Officer Certificate of Competency, details of practical and funding support and sets out the on board training tasks required for certification.
