Congratulations Rohan!! Well done!

 

I'm glad the study materials worked for you. Just out if interest did you notice any of the information to be outdated? I would like to keep the files that I have current and relevant.

 

The Australian government produce a list of occupations 'flagged' for removal from the SOL and I'm happy to say that Ship's Officer and Master are not in this list so I presume that means we are safe for at least another year following the new list to be produced in July 2014.

Hi guys,

 

Cleared my mates COR orals today from Sydney. As mentioned earlier in this topic it was quite a serious exam covering not only aus regs but the complete syllabus for mates COC. Thorough preparations/revision of entire syllabus is required. My orals lasted full 2 hours from 1200 to 1400, becoming the longest I have ever been through so far and definitely was longer than I had expected. I have Only done container vessels so far but was asked questions from containers/bulk/oil Tankers. Anyways all said and done. Finally the major hurdle is cleared. Special thanks to CaptainR and captainC for providing their questions and reference materials. Though theirs was for masters but still very helpful. Highly appreciate the help. Thanks again.

 

The only problem now is that I am boarding ship next week and will return in mid Aug. Will have to appear for Ielts and eventually apply for visa in sept/Oct. Just hoping that the Ships officer stays on the SOL next year as well. Any one has any ideas or info about this?

 

Congratulations, I wish you all the best. There is definitely work down under, we make the move to Sydney in May an I expect to be joining a ship shortly afterwards on the West Coast.

 

Please forward me your feedback from the Oral, I am planning to put together a small database. I may consider doing orals prep classes in the future!

Good day All,

 

I am a Master Mariner with a UK COC and have applied for my AMSA verification. I have been invited for the oral examination and am planning to go in July.

Can anyone who has been for the orals provide me with study material relevant to the Masters syllabus? I would really appreciate the help.

Thanks

Best Regards

H.S. Mann

Wow! a great forum to see. Many of my long list of doubts have been cleared going through the posts here. One more, I read in the posts regarding requirement of 12 months seatime in last 24 months for COR. I have been working as a Pilot for last 3 years, since my last revalidation, will I be eligible for the CoR? I am yet to start the process. Will decide upon receiving your feedbacks.

I believe that the requirements state that you should be in a closely related occupation so I do think that working as a Pilot will qualify for this.

The ANZSCO code is 2312 'Marine Transport Professional' and the last two digits 13 & 14 are specific to Ship's Officer and Ship's Master.

Pilot is included in the 2312 code but not necessarily specified. I would suggest contacting AMSA to get a definitive answer but I do know of Pilots who have emigrated. Alternatively you may have to be sponsored through a 457 visa.

Don't expect a quick reply, they are excruciatingly slow!

Just another thing to note is that if you go for the 189 Skilled Visa then because it is points dependant, if you can prove 8 years service (employment, not sea time) in the last ten years you will get maximum points.

Hello Group Members,

I had some query related to AMSA and DIAC.

 

1. Do we need to have atleast 12 month of seatime in last 24 month at the time of applying for assesment from AMSA.

2. Validity of assesment from AMSA is one year. Does it mean that within this one year we have to apply for EOI. And is it necessary that our assesment should be valid at the time of Invitation.

3. After getting invitation within how many days we can apply application for VISA.

4. I am getting just 60 points, is it enough to get an invitation. Kindly suggest what were the points for other group member who got an invitation.

5. Normally after how many days we get an invitation after applying EOI.

 

Thanx

Rahulmariner.

Q1. Not sure on that, check AMSA website.

Q2. Yes the assessment needs to be valid at time of application for the visa therefore it needs to be valid with spare time when submitting EOI.

Q3. 60 days

Q4. Get more than an 8 score on IELTS. Use your spouses degree if applicable for an extra 5 points.

Q5. Difficult to say, can be almost immediately and other times weeks or even months. There are normally two rounds of invitations per month, details on the SkillSelect website. Generally the more points you have, the quicker the invite will come.

Just received some good news. I can still get a certificate of recognition, live and work in Australia and the visa is a fraction of the price! AUD$405 I knew there was a reason I married a New Zealander!!

Hello Members, I am a marine engineer, but if i choose Mechanical engineer(as i am mechanical engineering graduate and also marine or mechanical is more or less same) from the SOL list and then go for assesement from Engineers Australia and if i am granted VISA, then is it necessary to work in Mechanical engineer field only. Is it possible to later get my skill assesed from AMSA and get COR and then switch to marine field. Is it mentioned somewhere in VISA or elsewhere that i have to work in my nominated ocuupation after getting VISA. As far i think, i can do this. Since PR Visa is just an entry ticket for working in Australia. But i need urs advise before i can proceed for this step.

I suggest you start a new thread to ask this question and any that are specifically Ship's Engineer or mechanical engineer related.

 

This thread is for Ship's Officers, Ship's Masters, and Marine Pilots and though some of the information here is relevant to engineers too.

 

The problem is that if we end up going off topic then the thread becomes diluted with information that is not relevant to the title of the thread.

ACT is landlocked so I would make a guess at that being the least likely to look for employment there.

All other states have seagoing jobs available. It's hard to make a list in descending order like you ask because I don't know what vessels you specialise on.

I would suggest looking through employment, mining and oil/gas websites to see what would suit you. However most jobs are fly in fly out (FIFO) so you can live where you like.
