Chartered Master Mariner is an award recognised on a similar level to Chartered Engineers and Architects. The HCMM decided to implement the award following a report into maritime growth. For many years there has been an issue with recognition of Master Mariner for those holding an STCW Masters Unlimited Certificate of Competency. The award under Chartership follows a peer review, proof of professional development and commitment to standards.
