Maritime Training Package Update

As we sail into 2015, the Maritime Training Package continues to tack towards completing all transition projects related to the New Standards for Training Packages. See below for activities within the first half of the year, concentrating on Integrate Ratings and Linespersons, Master and Watchkeeping Deck, and STCW Superyacht qualifications.

Integrated Ratings and Linespersons Qualifications

In 2015, TLISC will continue to align the Integrated Ratings and Linespersons qualifications to the Standards for Training Packages. This project will also provide the opportunity to align the qualifications to Marine Orders 73 (2014) and address any issues raised since the endorsement of the qualifications.

To undertake this project, TLISC will be conducting focus groups in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth in late February or early March 2015. To register your interest in attending one of these sessions please contact eddie.hardman@tlisc.org.au. The time, date and venue will be confirmed early in February.

Masters and Watchkeeping Deck Qualifications

The Diploma of Maritime Operations (Watchkeeper Deck), Diploma of Maritime Operations (Master up to 500 GT) and the Advanced Diploma of Maritime Operations (Master Unlimited) have been aligned to the Standards for Training Packages. It is anticipated that these qualifications will be submitted for endorsement in April 2015.

STCW Superyacht Qualifications

TLISC is also working with AMSA, Superyacht Australia and industry to develop STCW qualifications that address the training needs of the industry. A steering committee meeting is proposed for late February 2015.

Please contact Eddie Hardman on 03 9604 7234 or by email, eddie.hardman@tlisc.org.au, for all enquiries regarding these activities or other Maritime matters.
