Maritime Operations ＆ Engineering
Course code: J716
National ID: MAR40513
About this Course
This qualification will provide you with the practical skills and knowledge to maintain and operate marine engines, auxiliary machinery and onboard systems. You will learn about the engine room and auxiliary equipment used on larger vessels such as ferries, trawlers and tugs. You will also learn skills in basic mechanical engineering, engineering calculations and shipboard safety.
2016 Course Dates:
1st February - 25th March
18th July- 9th September
This course runs for 8 weeks.
This qualification is aligned to the educational requirement for Certification as Marine Engine Driver (Motor) Grade 1 as described in Part D of the National Standards for Commercial Vessels (NSCV). The Marine Engine Driver (Motor) Grade 1 Certificate of Competency (CoC) is issued by the appropriate maritime regulatory authority in each state and territory.
A Marine Engine Driver (Motor) Grade 1 Certificate allows a holder to take charge of the machinery on vessels less than:
- 525kw (35QN) propulsion power engaged in operations in any area; or750kw (50QN) propulsion power engaged in operations up to Australian Coastal - Middle Water Limits (600nm), or
- 1500kw propulsion power engaged in operations up to Inshore limits (15nm).
This certificate also allows the holder to be second-in-charge of machinery on vessels less than:
- 525kw (35QN) propulsion power engaged in Australian Coastal - Middle Water Limits (600nm)
- 750kw (50QN) propulsion power engaged in operations up to Australian Coastal - Middle Water Limits (600nm)
- 1500kw propulsion power engaged in operations up to Offshore Limits (600nm); or
- 1500kw propulsion power
Evidence of sea time/service on board a vessel will be required to obtain a Marine Engine Driver (Motor) Grade 1 Certificate of Competency from the Department of Transport. For information on all CoC requirements, please see: http://nationalsystem.amsa.gov.au/factsheets.php
