Registration is a globally recognised professional credential. It demonstrates your competence and experience (the highest level being Chartered status) and, as it is assessed on the same criteria worldwide, ensures that the same high professional standards are reached across all continents, allowing you to be recognised as a trusted professional, wherever you are in the world.
You do not need to have an academic qualification to apply. Other qualifications, such as Certificates of Competency (deck and engine), can also contribute to gaining registration.
Acknowledged worldwide, many employers in the marine industry view registration as indicative of an individual's commitment to their career.
