Barter International Maritime Studies (BIMS) trains cadets to
achieve Engineering Officer of the Watch (EOOW), earlier
called as Class IV Certification in shortest possible duration.
The courses are accredited by the MCA UK in association
with Warsash Maritime Academy Southampton UK.
The certification acquired is world class in compliance with
the requirements of the International Maritime Organisation
as well as the relevant sections of the Standards of Training,
Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) for Seafarers, 1978,
WERE YOU AWARE THAT…….
Sea cargo transportation takes 99% of the world cargo
market and leaves about 1% only (by weight) for the air
transportation industry. The recent boom in the global
economy has driven the sea freight market high and the
order books of most of the world’s shipyards are full through
the next 5 years. There are 70,000 ships plying across the
oceans, and numbers are expected to increase very fast.
Each ship requires a Chief Engineer and three watch
keeping engineer officers. With the growing demand for new
ships, there is expected to be a shortage of officers globally.
This course leads the students through a structured training
program preparing them for their very first professional
certification at sea – EOOW (Engine) Unlimited certificate.
At the end of this course, participants are able to safely and
competently carry out the watch keeping duties on board
merchant ships in the engine room both at sea and in port.
They will be conversant with the basic principles as per
STCW Regulations VIII/2 & STCW Code Chapter VIII.
The course is conducted over 3 stages, as follows:
STAGE 1: Pre Sea Course(PSC)
5 months duration, conducted at BIMS training institute in
Upon completion, the trainees will be sent for stage 2 training
which will be arranged by BIMS.
STAGE 2: Shipboard Attachment Monitoring (SAM)
6 - 9 months sea going training on board merchant ships
during which the engine cadet completes the MNTB Training
STAGE 3: EOOW Certificate of Competency
The student goes to Warsash Maritime Academy, UK where
he gives MCA oral test, SQA written exam, undergoes test for
workshop skills as well as assessment of the MNTB Training
