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 evaluation.

Once MISMO evaluates the documentary requirements, the seaman now schedules himself for appearance or final evaluation and releasing of his 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.

Some COPs have expiration dates. Hence, a Revalidation is required to continue shipboard employment.

Replacement of COPs are for those who had lost or damaged their Certificate of Proficiency.

These three have different documentary requirements. Let us check them out below.

I agree that this new system is better in some ways than its predecessors. However, the online evaluation and approval of certificates takes a very long time.

I did try reprinting or replacing my COPs with a new one. It took me almost a month to get them from start of submission of the documentary requirements until releasing.

The problem lies within MARINA themselves. There are only a handful of online evaluators versus thousands of COP applicants.

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

 

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.
