Your Merchant Navy Certificate of Competency

A Professional Certificate of Competency (CoC) is issued by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) in the UK. This provides you with the international recognition that you require in order to work at sea as a Ship's Deck, Engineer or Electro-Technical officer.
