    Hi,

    I am currently looking into ETO/AVIT positions on Super yachts and the career paths.

    I am located in Australia. My background is as a qualified electrician within the industrial automation sector. I have also done another certification based on industrial electronics and digital control.

    - What positions are entry level that verge into a career path of an ETO
    - Am I able to get into the role of ETO/AVIT officer without an engineering degree specifically or a marine cadetship
    - I am aware that I will require the STCW 95 course. Will the AEC and MEOL be required for this position and are there courses ETO's require specifically.
    - How do people generally get into ETO positions on Super yachts

    ETOs are in pretty high demand on larger boats. Get yourself STCW qualified, and then start circulating your CV to crew agents.
