MASTERS AND WATCHKEEPING DECK REVIEW

Transport & Logistics Industry Skills Council › Masters and Watchkeeping Deck Review

TLISC is aligning the current Master Unlimited, Master up to 500 gross tonnes and the Watchkeeping Deck qualifications to the Standards for Training Packages. This will also include a revision of the qualifications to ensure they are compliant with Marine Orders 70 and 71 (2014).

Project Overview

The current units of competency and qualifications will be aligned to the Standards for Training Packages and amended to address any issues that have been raised since they were endorsed in 2013. They will also be mapped to the Standards of Training Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) to ensure they comply with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s (AMSA) regulatory requirements.

Project Update

12 November 2014 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) and associated units of competency have been aligned to the Standards for Training Packages. A mapping was undertaken against Marine Orders 70 and 71 (2014), which resulted in the qualifications being restructured.
