Where possible International students attending the Engineering Technician Qualifying Course and wishing to proceed directly onto the Leading Engineering Technician Qualifying Course and the Petty Officer Engineering Technician Qualifying Course will do so by attending an earlier Leading Hand’s and Petty Officer’s follow on course to alleviate the gap in waiting while RN students go to sea. However this course is not a pre-requisite for attendance on the Leading Engineering Technician Qualifying Course for International Students.
