Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. New unit of competency. Licensing/regulatory information has been incorporated in accordance with Regulatory requirements. Assessment Requirements have been strengthened in accordance with Regulatory requirements.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to slip or dock a vessel of up to 80 m and carry out all required maintenance procedures to manage hull deterioration and maintain the watertight integrity of the vessel.

This unit applies to people working in the maritime industry in the capacity of:

  • master on commercial vessels <35 m in length within the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) or
  • master on vessels <80 m in inshore waters or
  • master on commercial vessels <24 m in length in inland waters; and
  • chief mate or deck watchkeeper on vessels <80 m within the EEZ.

Licensing/Regulatory Information 

Legislative and regulatory requirements are applicable to this unit. This unit is one of the requirements to obtain Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) certification as a Master (Inland waters), Master <24m NC, Mate <80m NC and Master <35m NC as defined in the National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NSCV) Part D. The AMSA mandated practical assessment (AMPA) is a requirement for AMSA certification as a Master (Inland waters) and Master <24 m NC.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) mandated practical assessment (AMPA) will cover a range, but not all, of the requirements identified in the Performance Evidence and Knowledge Evidence. The AMPA shall be undertaken in accordance with its instructions. Slipping or docking may be done as a group exercise. Where this is not possible, observation of slipping or docking of a vessel must occur.

Assessors of AMPA must hold as a minimum:

  • a current certificate of competency issued under Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2012 at the same level as the qualification being assessed with at least 12 months’ relevant sea service, or
  • a relevant seafarer certificate, as master, engineer or deck officer, issued under the Navigation Act 2012.
