Here are the complete requirements in applying for a Certificate of Proficiency (COP) using MARINA’s latest online application platform.

MARINA’s Integrated Seafarers Management Online System or more commonly known as MISMO enables seafarers to submit their COP requirements online for initial evaluation.

Once MISMO approves your application, you can immediately set a schedule for appearance or final evaluation as well as releasing of your certificate.

 

MISMO COP Requirements

There are three types of COP applications to choose from depending on the purpose of the applicant. These are Issuance, Revalidation and Replacement.

COP Issuance are for those who wants to apply for a Certificate of Proficiency for the very first time.

This new system is better in many ways than its predecessors.  Not only that this is more convenient for us but the fees are also reduced to almost half!

There is no need for us to go to MARINA because everything can be done online. This means that we can renew our certificates even if we are onboard!

You can also check out the steps in processing your Certificate of Proficiencies in one of my posts.

Scrapping the 6-Month Rule

The 6-Month Rule states that all training must be applied for a Certificate of Proficiency within six months of its completion. If you fail to do this and your training certificate is more than 6 months old, you may have to take the whole course again. Once more, you have to strive for a COP within six months

But the latest advisory from MARINA suspended this rule. Training certificates less than five years old are now eligible for COP application. You can still file for a COP within two years since you completed your training.

However, there’s a catch. COP expiration for that document will be five years from the date of completion of the corresponding training.

For example. If you took your Basic Training last 2015 and applied for a Certificate of Proficiency today, its expiration would be on 2020.

 

Here’s a trivia. Do you know that long time ago, a sailor’s proficiency, competency, beliefs and experience is forever inked in their skin in the form of seaman’s tattoo?

May the winds be on your favor.
