From 1 September 2013, anyone applying to the MCA for a Certificate of Competence will need a HELM certificate in addition to the existing requirements. There are 2 levels of HELM; Operational level (3 day course) and Management level (5 day course).
SeaRegs Training is approved by the MCA to offer the 3 day HELM (Operational) course from our Plymouth, London and Rome based classroom.
Seafarers booking onto this course are required to provide evidence of their sea time, relevant to their chosen career route.
Shore-side staff can attend the same HELM (Operational) course as those working at sea, there are no pre qualifications for shore-side staff to attend.
