I wrote to the MCA in the UK to ask who are the official approved centres who they accept for the Assessment in Marine Cookery and here is their official list as at 17th March 2020.
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.
