There are a number of different QMED (Qualified Member of the Engineering Department) ratings. The most common for both steam and motor (diesel) ships is the Oiler rating. Many older steam vessels also require the Fireman/Watertender rating. Tankships require Pumpman and vessels with electrical cargo gear carry the Electricians rating. Additional ratings include Refrigeration Engineer, Deck Engineer, Machinist, and Junior Engineer. If you obtain all of the above ratings you may obtain a rating of QMED-All Ratings
