AEC 2 is a mandatory 5 days course for students enrolled in the new small vessel route to second engineer.

The objective of the AEC 2 course is to provide students, with theoretical knowledge and practical hands on experience of additional areas, as laid down in the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) AEC 2 syllabus. The aim is to enable them to meet the COC requirements of the new common “Small Vessel” (Yachts, Tugs, Fishing Vessels, Workboats, Standby, Seismic Survey, Oceanographic Research Vessels and Government Patrol Vessels, of less than 3000 GT and Power Less than 9,000 kW with Unlimited Area of operation.) It forms part of the required modules to enter the industry as a junior/assistant engineer, with the ability to progress through to the Small Vessel Second Engineer Officer qualification.

When combined with AEC part 1, this unit can also be included as part of the award for an MCA’s Marine Engine Operators Licence (MEOL) which is the licenses required by the Chief Engineer on UK Flagged vessel of less than 750 kW operating in near coastal waters (150 miles from the nearest shore)

Minimum age 18 years old.

The candidate must have successfully completed the AEC 1 course or a recognised equivalent. It is the responsibility of the candidate to produce evidence that their equivalent qualification to AEC 1 has been accepted by the MCA as being a satisfactory equivalent

All equipment to complete the course will be provided. You just need to bring a pair of overalls and suitable footwear. It may be beneficial to bring a laptop in order to access some information given on a memory stick, this is not essential.
