A Guide to Superyacht ETO and AV/IT Careers

eto yacht salary

Following on from our guides on superyacht   deck,   interior,   engineering and chef  careers , it’s time to get technical and clear up some confusion around the roles of an ETO and an AV/IT officer. To keep us on track with the latest training requirements for both, we spoke to Scott Molloy of SEACertify to get his input for this latest guide courtesy of the careers guidance platform,   Academy by Ephemeris.

What is the difference between the role of electro-technical officer (ETO) and that of superyacht AV/IT officer?

The AV/IT officer role generally encompasses interior automation, entertainment, IT and some satellite systems. Essentially, they oversee the technology systems beyond the remit of a traditional ETO, which is mainly marine electronics.

Before the Manila Amendments to STCW, superyachts interpreted the ETO role to include the ever-growing consumer technologies and IT on board, but it is now more important than ever to distinguish between the two roles.

In practice, an individual can fulfil either or both roles, however AV/IT has nothing to do with the role of the ETO - they are completely different.

What size of vessel would typically have both an ETO and an AV/IT officer?

Generally a superyacht longer than 90 metres almost always has a dedicated AV/IT officer.  Below this length, a vessel is likely to have a crew member in another position assume the AV/IT role.

Whether the vessel has an ETO is less size related, but falls under two general scenarios:

Where the vessel has an ETO dictated on its Safe Manning Document (SMD). A flag state such as Cayman Islands is more inclined to ask for an ETO ticket amongst the crew when the vessel has diesel-electric propulsion, rather than the size of the vessel or the number of guests/passengers on board.

There is no ETO on the SMD, but the vessel/management have otherwise decided there is a crewmember with the job title ETO, as originally stated in the MCA’s MSN 1860 (now revised to MSN 1860 Amendment 1 )

What qualifications do I need to become an ETO?

As for all crew working on board, to be a superyacht ETO you need to have completed your STCW basic safety training (a five day course) and have a valid ENG1 medical certificate.

The ETO’s remit was covered by a new Certificate of Competency (CoC) under regulation iii/6 of the STCW 2010 Manila Amendments. All crew sailing under the job title of ETO should now hold this ticket.

Paragraph 1.5 of The MCA’s MSN 1860 Amendment 1  states that: “If you are employed on a ship as an ETO, you must hold an STCW ETO Certificate of Competency whether or not an ETO is listed on the SMD (safe manning document)”.

How long is the training to become an ETO and what does it involve?

The standard route (without a higher education in Electrical Engineering or an equivalent Electro-Technical subject) is currently three years.  A candidate requires sponsorship through a shipping company in order to complete five phases, split across college phases and sea time. The standard route leads to either a Foundation Degree or HND in Electronics and Marine Electrical Engineering. 

All of the academic subjects, short courses and sea time required are offered within the route to enable a candidate to apply for a Notice of Eligibility (NOE). Once they have this, they can then sit the MCA Oral exam and gain their ETO Certificate of Competency (CoC) if successful.

Candidates must currently obtain at least 12 months of combined sea time and workshop skills, and have completed a Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) Training Record Book (TRB) while on board ship.

For those candidates with a higher level Electrical Engineering qualification or equivalent, there is now a fast-track cadetship route , which can take 18-20 months. This route is currently only being offered at South Shields Marine School. Candidates require sponsorship or approval from a shipping company to complete required sea and workshop time on this route.

Individual requirements vary depending on prior studies/sea time experience, which can be assessed by the Marine School. If eligible for this route, they can produce an action plan for a candidate to follow in order to obtain the required pre-requisites for their NOE. Once they have their NOE, they can then sit the MCA Oral exam and gain their ETO Certificate of Competency (CoC) if successful in passing the exam.

Ephemeris ETOs 1

How do I progress through the ranks as an ETO?

Only some large superyachts are required to carry an ETO under their flag state’s safe manning requirements for the vessel. Other yachts may still choose to have an ETO to compliment their technical department. But with usually a maximum of one ETO on board some of the large yachts, there isn’t the same career progression on board you would see on larger vessels, such as cruise ships that have junior through to chief ETOs.

On superyachts, ETO career progression more often involves moving onto new positions with more responsibilities and an improved employment package on other vessels. In either case, it is essential to compliment the continuing on-the-job professional development with further short courses such as vendor-specific training or by gaining AV/IT skills also.

For those willing to gain an MCA SETO (Senior Electro-Technical Officer) endorsement in their CoC, this will assist in career progression also. 

This can be obtained as follows:

12 months' sea time as an ETO with an ETO CoC

HND/Advanced Diploma, Foundation Degree or Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

HELM(M) course completion certificate

High Voltage Management course certificate

Pass a SETO MCA oral exam

For more details on the SETO endorsement also see the MCA’s MSN 1860 Amendment 1.

With requirements in place for ETO certification, what is the current status for AV/IT training and certification?

A working group involving the relevant superyacht industry professional bodies and individuals has been developing a qualification framework for AV/IT training. This will result in crucial, yet non-mandatory, AV/IT training standards for the superyacht sector. The advantages include a new clear career pathway for superyacht AV/IT and also the creation of a new, easily recognised and industry-specific training standard. The most basic level of the qualification framework is close to launch, and once the independent assessment platform is finalised, may be completed within the next few months.

What is the working relationship between the ETO and the AV/IT officer?

On a vessel large enough to have both a dedicated ETO and AV/IT officer, they would both typically work under the chief engineer and be expected to assist each other as required, with some crossover of responsibilities possible. But most vessels are not large enough to have both as dedicated crewmembers, and they become roles. In these cases, the electrical/electronics role of the ETO and the technology role of the AV/IT officer fall to whichever other crew are deemed most suitable.

2023/2024 Superyacht Crew Salary Guide

eto yacht salary

Whether you’re continuing a long-standing career, climbing the career ladder, or getting your feet wet for the first time, Dockwalk ’s Salary Guide provides the full picture when it comes to crew compensation. 

Salary is generally one of the top motivators for those looking for jobs in yachting, but it remains a closely guarded secret. Each year, the Dockwalk Salary Survey goes out to thousands of crewmembers and crew agencies across the world, gathering real-time salary feedback with the aim of creating greater transparency and understanding across the industry.

The 2024 Salary Survey is now open.

The Results of the 2023 Salary Survey

Our annual salary survey provided some unprecedented insights to what captains and crew earned in 2023.

The yachting industry is slowly returning to normal in the wake of the pandemic. Yachts are back to work around the world and many new ones are in the pipeline thanks to the surge in popularity the "social distant" yachting lifestyle has enjoyed. But, while this return to normalcy has opened up new crew jobs this year, crew themselves have been returning to the workplace in large numbers and competition has been fierce.

Many of the crew agents reported that crew wages largely are flat this year compared to last. Salaries went up in 2021 and 2022 when crew were in short supply, but now more crew are available than previously. While crew are demanding higher pay this year, they’re not necessarily receiving it, but some agents have seen salaries continue to rise since Covid. There are many factors that can affect the salary crew can expect, including where a yacht is based and the season.

The tables below show the “agency range,” which gives the average lows and highs of all ranges provided by the agencies, the “poll range,” where results from individual working captains and crew are tallied to show the lowest and highest of all the responses, and the “poll average” calculated from all the responses. Note that our figures do not account for longevity and experience, crew benefit packages, tips, or similar extra remuneration.

Not all positions with corresponding boat sizes had enough poll responses to be considered significant; those categories are marked with an asterisk to indicate if fewer than five crew responded in that size range for that position. Several categories had no or only one response, which is also noted.

MARINE ELECTRO TECHNICAL OFFICER

BEST TIPS TO AWE INSPIRING CAREER AS ETO

Electrical safety training – loto (lockout/tagout), jobs ashore for eto after quitting from merchant navy, egcs – detailed overview, ultimate bearing guide & facts for eto, suez canal transit checks eto must know, vfd (variable frequency drive) complete guide, list of solas regulation every eto must know, marine alternator maintenance guide, ship eto & etr major difference, programmable logic controllers complete guide, overview of navigation equipments used in ship, me engine electronics full guide, me engine mpc (multi-purpose controller).

ETO (Electro-Technical Officer) and ETR (Electro-Technical Rating) belong to the engine department and job responsibility is the same but you must know the main difference between these two ranks. Let us discuss what makes these two ranks different?

CERTIFICATION

  • The Electro-Technical Rating (ETR) is a rating assisting the Chief Engineer or ETO in performing electrical duties. They are known as Electricians. From 1 Jan 2017 , such ratings should hold a certificate of proficiency as ETR issued under STCW Regulation III/7 . It is not necessary to apply for a flag state COE (certificate of endorsement) for ratings with a COP (certificate of proficiency) as ETR.
  • The Electro-Technical Officer (ETO) is an engineer officer assisting the Chief Engineer or Chief ETO in performing electrical duties. From 2017 it is mandatory for ETO to hold a COC (certificate of competency) issued under STCW Regulation III/6 .

QUALIFICATION

  • To ETO (Electro-Technical Officer), the candidate has to undergo Pre-Sea training (Bridging course for existing Electrical officers who has sailed before 2017), STCW courses, Later sail as a trainee for 12 months which is required for COC. The requirement for Pre-Sea training may slightly differ from country to country. He/She must have completed a Bachelor degree in Electrical/Electronics Engineering or Diploma in Electrical/Electronics Engineering.
  • Electrician/ETR (Electro-Technical Rating), the candidate who has completed diploma in electrical or worked as Electrician onshore can sail as Electrician onboard ship. Electrician can apply for COP (Certificate of Proficiency) after sailing as Electrical cadet or Assistant Electrician who have completed required sea service. Kindly refer to the procedure & requirement for obtaining COP provided by Marine Department .
  • ETO gets a very decent salary scale. In Cargo ship , trainee ETO can expect a salary range from 500USD to 3000USD (depending upon seatime), After obtaining a license (COC) can expect a salary range from 3500USD to 7000USD (max). In Passenger ship , the scale varies from 1500USD to 12000+USD . (Salary in largest cruise ship & also depends upon designation, ETO cadet < 4th ETO < 3rd ETO < 2nd ETO < 1st ETO < Chief ETO ).
  • Currently, In cargo ships , there is no position called Electrician, Electrician rank is replaced by ETO in most of the ship because the company requires COC holders. But in some flags , COC is not mandatory. But in Passenger ship & Off-Shore Electrician rank still exist. The salary scale of Electricians in the largest passenger ship line varies from 1200USD to 2000USD , Also depends upon designation 3rd Assistant Electrician < 2nd Assistant Electrician < 1st Assistant Electrician .

Thank you for your comment

I am trainee electrical officer any suggestions for trainee eto job sir I am job searching from 1 year

Do you have sponcership or still waiting. try in V.Ships or Any other company update your resume in seajob.net

Sir I’m Rajesh Patkaro I’ study I T I in electrician please help me how get ETR certificate

The major issue is that the marine ETO is discriminated versus marine engineers. The ETO management level (S.E.T.O) was denied at IMO convection blocking the possibility for the E.T.O to cover management position within the engine department. Mechanical and electrical engineer are just different field but absolutely one cannot be subordinated to the other especially nowdays with more and more complex electrical machinery & automation. ETO association’s should join to address this to IMO for revision.

Very true, Also not mentioned in safe manning. It seems like IMO is not interested in promoting ETO rank.

I’m electrician searching job any vessel, now im on board flag Tanzania . Experience 12 months.

They can allow as a holder of bachelor science In industrial technology major in electrical to apply as a electrical assistant?

I think yes, because the major work is related to the job description.

Sou eletricista maritmo, eletronico, estudo engenharia eletrica, tenho experiencia em manutenção eletrica, eletronica e anos de eletricista em navios de posicionamento dinamico(DP) gostaria de saber se existe equivalencia para se tornar ETO por tempo de embarque.

Îs only loose.time&moneyETO rank-5 years Maritime University,Bachelor Electrical EngineerMaster Equivalent Nobody not recognize this like Engineer.Only some Cruise,or LNG companies

How mach salary for ETR

Can I take exam for ETR or any field in electronics/ electrical if I only read books of ET US naval book for etlectronics tecnician ?

Any Indian ETO holding ETO Uk COC please send his contact number

Great Eastern and AMET are good for this course. Here is the more info: https://marinersgalaxy.com/2014/10/amet-university-courses-address-and.html

cn i apply fa des post …as i hve completed diploma in electrical eng

No, this is not a post. This information is for the course and how to become eto officer.

How to take entry as eto, what exam I have to crack and when will form available and from where ?

Hello, Please contact the above colleges mentioned, they will tell you when they have open admissions.

Sir, what about the placement,since there is only one ETO in a vessel?

Every college have their placement cell and they look after the students placement. It is wise to check colleges placement in past prior of taking admissions.

Hello sir, eye sight or specs num. Is make a problem in job or not? What about max. Eye sight?

.i am pursuing B.E mechatronics engineering. am i eligible for ETO course

We don't think so, that mechatronics is allowed for eto course.

Well I think only electronics,electrical and tele communications students can do ETO course.

sir Is coimbatore marine college is good to do ETO course

Just see their past performance, if it is good, then yes you can go ahead.

Hi Sir, I have a discipline of EEE (B.E). I have a passionate to work in a marine sector. So I will take a course of ETO. Kindly, let me know about Is there any possibilities to prefer a WOMAN in that field? Chances to prefer a WOMAN??

very few companies are taking female officers

very few companies are taking female officers ur name luluwa?

We are proud to share that Shipping Corporation of India Ltd. – Maritime Training Institute at Powai commenced its first batch of ETO with 5 female officers out of 30 participants.

Profession is good for every person. Already there are so many women in this field.

Ok. Thanks for your response!

Sir, I thank u for the detailed article on ETO course. Pls clarify my doubts… I heard that the ETO should work in extreme temperature n heavy noisy environments in the engine side about 45*C and its a tough job to survive there… I passed b.tech in electronics n communications with 55%. Am not so good with heavy electrical equipments and with electrical side… I heard that ETO course is offered on 'low voltage side'… If there any course so that I could stick with the navigation radio, radar systems …ie communication side ..not heavy electrical equipments like generator side…if I study this particular ETO course any chance for me to work only @ the communication n radar systems side? Is ETO is different from ship engineer? do we getting a job as fourth engineer after doing ETO course ? pls help…

Well this is truth that engine people have to work in hot environment-but not always. Its depends on which part of globe you are sailing. If in colder climate, nothing is better than engine room.

As per IMO from 2017, every engineer and ETO must hold high voltage course in order to serve on ships above 1000V.

Radar and other equipments hardly get problems on ships.

Yes ETO is different from engineer. ETO is for Electrical troubleshooting and engineer for machines. But both have to work together.

No Your rank will be electrical officer not 4th marine engineer officer.

Sir, I would like to know about the radio officer job.I heard that nowadays radio officer job is eliminated by the shipping companies as they insist their 3rd or 4th engineer to take the certification n do the job. Is it true? Is there any scope for radio officer career in future ? What salary for a junior radio officer n senior R O.? In some sites it says about $3000 n in some others its only $500 as salary.How many years it will take one to promoted to senior R O?

Sir , I heard that a radio officer job in oil rig industry is pretty highly paid job and there R O plays a vital role. But in many job sites the employer is seeking a 3 year experience as a radio officer in "offshore"n vessels. So if I choose this radio officer course n later having experience in vessels,am planning to get a job of R O in rig industry. What's your opinion ? I value your suggestions very much as you have great knowledge in this field…so pls guide me for a better future … Pls let me know the pros n cons of my 'idea '. Am having a btech degree in electronics n communications but as am not so good @ electrical side is it wise for me to go for ETO course?

my friend the position u are talking about is removed ages back now all the radios is handled by 3 officer and if any electrical fault happens then electrical officer takes care of it

Rightly said by Zeeshan, now the 3rd officer or any other deck officer will be the RADIO OFFICER.

Hello Sir, Is there any carrier progression for ETO ? Can ETO become Chief Engineer ? I heard that if a Junior Electrical & Electronics Officer onboard ship gets OOW certificate and a specialized training certificate, will he become 4th Engineer or eligible for appearing in 4th Engineer Exam ?

Yes this is right fact. ETO can switch to engine side as well.

Hello Ashish, You mentoned that ETO can switch to mechanical side.what is the procedure for that and what do you mean by specialized training certificate.It will be very kind if you explain regarding the procrdures for switching..

Hello Ashish and Deepu, One of my friend appeared for class 4b after 12 months sailing as ETO. So i think this is the way you can do it.

Well as far as I Know Harsh is right in saying that.

@Deepu, what specialized training certificate i talked, i can't find it anywhere?

Hello Harsh sharma Where did your friend done class 4 exam. Is it Indian or any other country? Can u give me the details. @Ashish:-In one of your post you mentioned that existing EO'S can appear for class 4exam with OOW and specialised training…

Could u pls tell me the colleges that offer "ETO WITH HIGH VOLTAGE COURSE"? When i enquired some colleges they said most of the colleges that offer 4months ETO course is without high voltage as per DG shipping circular and STCW 2010 rules…

Hello Hari,

Nice Question buddy.

Point noted, we will shortly publish one article about it. Stay tuned for more update.

hello ashish , could u pls update about the colleges that offer "ETO WITH HIGH VOLTAGE COURSE"?

Our Team is researching on this topic as lots of questions are coming regarding this. Will be published shortly.

Here is the article on high voltage course https://marinersgalaxy.com/2015/08/stcw-high-voltage-course-for-engineer-officers.html

hai sir, how many years/contracts will it take for a trainee ETO to become Assistant ETO and then to become ETO? could u pls give the salary details at each stage? What are certificates offered under ETO course in india?

Its depends on company to company, but I think 6 months will be sufficient. Salary range is given above.

As far as certificates about ETO are concerned, please refer to the respective colleges.

sir, there is a job guaranty after course completion. because course cost is very huge amount to me..

Sir, I have just completed my 17 weeks ETO course and have got an offer to join a research vessel. Would it be wise to join such a vessel during my 9 months training period? What is the future after my completion ? Please advise

There is no issue, till the time it matches ETO training requirement.

Hi good day sir, i currently work as an electrical 0fficer. How can i upgrade my career to be an eto. Please give me a piece of advice.thanx a lot.have a nice day!

Electrical on ships?

Sir , I think he is as an electrical officer to serve on ship and long time serviced, he mean , how to change from e/o coc to eto coc. Sir , same me , how to change from e/o coc to eto coc? bacause I working a long time on ship, have family/ car / home / kids, no time going back in class. Do you have another way or some course to guidline for in case, Or any course for (electrical officer) upgrade to electro technical officer course.

sir which institute is better for ETO and for Placement? sir i have 3 option 1 is the great eastern 2 is the anglo eastern and 3 is the AMET. sir pls give me a guidence which institute i join?

how is the sea time counted for trainee ETOs? Does it depend on the propeller running?

We Don't think that these days propelling time is counted, as most of the time ships are running. But still some days above the prescribed sailing period is advised. Like if 180 days are needed, sail for 185 or 190 days.

plz don't do this eto course….a huge amount of money is spent but is at last of no use.. none of the colleges provide placement….no companies take fresher etos,,,, there are already so much etos ….plus only one eto per ship….most ships don't have etos….. it is managed by 3rd engineer…. future is really bleak. trust me friends….i have suffered a lot. don't enter this field. do a shore job in any industry.

Can we talk sometime? I am planning to do the ETO course.

Am complete B.E EEE then I think after join for ETO course… your opinion tel me sir ..can u tel me ETO placement details Sir ..pls

Sir I would like to know career progression as an ETO since its one rank job with no promotion or salary hike.

But I heard ETO can shift to Engine department and go on to become chief engg, is it right, if yes please tell the procedure in detail like how much sea experience is needed for this…etc

I have cleared my entrance xam for eto in Angloeastern but their is a delay in interview round , how should I prepare for it?

GM sir.. i want to join ETO course. But i read above comment of 1sept 2015. the above person is giving negative comment about this course so i'm little worried.can you please give me the detailed about placement? why IMU is removed high voltage from course?

Yes, job market is little bad right now, but that does not mean you never pursue a career. But yes, being sponsored from a shipping company, before doing the course is quite necessary these days.

Im oil rig ET for 2 years now is there any way to change to shipping vessels. If it is possible how to change with this experience. I listened that shipping vessels companies are paying more to ETO.

don´t take ETO route, you will be dumped by the industry as soon as they will not need you. (automatic control and troubleshooting will come by double systems) There is no promotion as well. Just like they did with the Radio Officers, with the help and advise of the Masters.

just coose other industry, shipping is just too shortsighted.
