Which are the MCA approved Centres for doing the Assessment in Marine cookery?

Update as of 6 November 2020.

Email received from MCA below lists the MCA approved providers….

NOTE: This is the list of UK MCA approved centres. If you are wanting to do a UK MCA approved assessment in order to obtain the UK MCA Ships Cook Certificate then these are the centres they have approved. I will post an update on other flag state ships cook certificate info as and when I get them. Some flag states are already listed on this site and what their requirements are regarding ships cooks. Please refer to those pages.
