Registered Marine Coatings Inspector standard five year revalidation gets underway
Following a meeting of the key stakeholders, the process of RMCI revalidation was discussed and agreed.
The purpose of the revalidation process is to ensure Inspectors are competent to continue as an RMCI. To achieve revalidation, there are two requirements which are based on 1) a review of professional activity and evidence and 2) the completion of a mandatory online refresher.
The RMCI course and the certification of suitably experienced and qualified inspectors has been welcomed and supported by many in the superyacht coatings sector, including in newbuild and refit shipyards. Considerable feedback has been forthcoming to demonstrate that the RMCI qualification has greatly improved the standardisation of coating inspections across the sector.
