Introduction


The Bridge Officer Certification Program (BOCP) is a series of examinations for STARFLEET Officers who wish to qualify themselves a command-ready in the department of their choice. This opportunity is not one to be taken lightly. The BOCP was created for members of STARFLEET to become "certified" in their chapter department(s) as a command-level officer. This program is similar to the Vessel Readiness Certification Program (VRCP), except this is for individual members instead of an entire department. It is awarded in the STARFLEET Database as an Academy award.

This award is earned by successful completion of the program requirements. This involves earning credits in a specific set of courses from the STARFLEET Academy. You must complete and send in the application in order to earn the certification. You may certify in one or more of thirteen (13) different positions, ranging from Flight Control Officer to Commanding Officer.

Participation in this program is entirely voluntary, and is not required to hold any position in STARFLEET.
