I have been safety officer for three years and I just remember correcting pursers chatting away at their muster stations.
If you're an officer, where did you take your IMO 80 advanced safety training, where did you take your advanced medical training and how often are you supposed to launch the lifeboats according to SOLAS?
Don't get me wrong:

- But using the correct meaning of a title they are not officers pr
