Well that’s the last “proper” college phase now finished, although rather annoyingly I have to hang around until Thursday 22nd to sign some forms! So I have an entire week here doing nothing!
I do return to college for 3 weeks orals prep at the end of this sea phase and then a few weeks of short courses before I sit my OOW Oral examination (“orals”) with the MCA next June/July if all goes well.
I have also passed my MCA Signals Oral examination yesterday and should be able to pick my certificate up from the college next week sometime.
Anyway I will probably write some more before I go away to sea.
Ps. I am now on Twitter which I will be using while I am away at sea to let you know where I am and if I am doing anything interesting while at sea.
