Can anyone steer me into the right area to find information regarding my late fathers marine qualifications.
He was issued a Masters Certificate, # "C & F 1926" in Port Adelaide in the latter part of 1949.
hope I can be put on coarse.
I have just done a quick search and found that current marine certificates of competency are issued by the current SA Department of Transport, Energy and Infrastructure. I'm not sure whether these certificates, or registers of certificates, are retained permanently, however, I recommend you contact State Records South Australia as they are the most likely to hold the records if they have been retained. The contact details are:
