Maritime Training Package Update

Marina Operations

The final draft of the Certificate III in Marina Operations and units of competency, developed specifically for incorporation in the qualification, were agreed by the Marina Operations Steering Committee on 26 November 2014. This qualification, which was developed to provide the skills required by people working in the marina industry who perform a range of tasks such as berthing, mooring and storage of vessels and a range of boatyard tasks have now been placed on the TLISC website.

MAR Maritime Training Package version 2.0

The Case for Endorsement for the Maritime Training Package version 2.0 was submitted to the Department of Industry on 25 November 2014, for consideration. The anticipated date for endorsement is late January 2015.

The submission includes:

  1. Radio Operators and Fast Rescue units of competency and Skill Sets
  2. Offshore Familiarisation units of competency and Skill Sets
  3. The Engineering, Engineer Watchkeeper, Marine Engine Driver (Steam) and Marine Surveying qualifications aligned to the Standards for Training Packages

The Case for Endorsement, units of competency and qualifications are available on the TLISC website.

TLISC would like to thank the Project Steering Committees that oversaw the development of these projects and would also like to thank everyone who provided feedback throughout the various phases of the projects.

In 2015 TLISC will continue to align the Integrated Ratings and Linespersons qualifications to the Standards for Training Packages. A steering committee meeting is proposed for early March 2015.

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 March 2015.

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.

Lastly, I would like to thank all of our Maritime stakeholders who have provided invaluable support and advice throughout 2014. Your support and involvement in ensuring maritime training products are current and reflective of industry needs keeps the Maritime industry a vibrant, skilled sector.

All the best for the 2014 holiday season, I look forward to continuing our work in 2015.
