This book of the CD-Rom Software of the same name is aimed at students studying for professional merchant navy deck officer certificates of competency. Ship Stability for Mates/Masters covers the syllabus requirements for the current Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) Examination (conducted on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA)) up to STCW Chief Mate/Master Reg. II/2 (Unlimited) standard. It also covers the content of HND Ship Stability Units being currently offered by UK colleges as part of the underpinning knowledge required for certification to Officer of the Watch (OOW) and Chief Mate Levels (STCW 95). Because this text is likely to be used by students not serving on UK registered ships, or who might be attending non-UK college courses, IMO regulations requirements are also quoted where appropriate in addition to the MCA requirements.
