Accreditation Benefits

There are several accreditation benefits of becoming an eCMID Accredited Vessel Inspector.

Firstly and most importantly, you will be recognised by the industry and your peers as a competent eCMID vessel inspector having achieved the accreditation standard.

All eCMID Accredited Vessel Inspectors will receive an electronic certificate to recognise their achievement, which can be downloaded and printed for display purposes.

Once you have achieved accredited status, you may use the phrase ‘eCMID Accredited Vessel Inspector’ on your letter heading, on your business cards and on your web site (if you so wish).  You are also entitled to use the image below.

You will receive a dated plastic photo ID card (example as shown below) which can be used to verify your identity to a vessel owner, managing agent or vessel’s captain. Your card may also assist you with gaining entry to other areas of operation. Your card will display your unique Accredited Vessel Inspector number too, similar to the example card below. The date on your card will reflect the anniversary of your accreditation date.

Your details will be listed on the searchable eCMID Accredited Vessel Inspector database on this web site. This will include your name, country location, email address, telephone number with your photograph, your approved vessel types and your unique Accredited Vessel Inspector number. People will be able to email you a message directly, although your email address will be hidden and not revealed to the outside world.
