Maritime Training Package Update

Release 3.0 of the Maritime Training Package was endorsed by the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) on 1 September 2015 and is now available on the website.   It includes four existing qualifications and relevant units of competency that have been aligned to the Standards for Training Packages and revised to better reflect AMSA and STCW requirements, they include:

  • MAR30415 Certificate III in Maritime Operations (Marine Cookery)
  • MAR50315 Diploma of Maritime Operations (Watchkeeper Deck)
  • MAR50415 Diploma of Maritime Operations (Master up to 500 GT)
  • MAR60315 Advanced Diploma of Maritime Operations (Master Unlimited).

Release 3.0 also includes MAR30315 Certificate III in Marina Operations. This qualification is the first for the industry and covers the specific training requirements of marina owners and operators for berthing, mooring, storage and slipway/workshop facilities that are connected to sailing, cruising and general boating. The qualification is essential in improving the skill level of those working in the industry while providing a level of flexibility that addresses the needs of businesses and individuals alike.

The Companion Volume Implementation Guide has also been updated and is available on the TLISC website.

TLISC would like to thank everyone who contributed to the development of release 3.0, for their time and the feedback provided throughout the various phases of these projects.
