Please do not try to become ETO as there is no promotion .You will regret later when your juniors may progress up and start bullying you.Most of the Chief Engineers(Except Few who are good in electrical also)  I have worked butter the Captains for their survival and they trouble you.For any job on Ship more than 90% ETO is required .You won't get any help from any engineers or any one.Engineers just sit in ECR and do watch all the time .Their job done by oilers .They won't give you any respect.Previously there is Electrical officer under chief and 2nd Engineer.Now a little promotion of ETO with COC and under Chief Engineer reports to top fours.Still a long way to go for ETO. If you work in DP vessel ETO role is very hectic and stressful.

I recommend you to try for the Engineering role .
