About the course
What can I expect out of this qualification?
The purpose of this qualification is to provide the maritime industry with people who have the skills and knowledge required by the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) to work as Officer of the Watch (Deck) on foreign-going ships. Graduates will be able to work directly under the Chief Mate or Master and have a very high level of responsibility for the safety of the vessel. The Officer of the Watch will be expected to operate unsupervised for extended periods in sole charge of complex and unpredictable vessel operations.
This qualification is for seafarers training to become officers in charge of a navigational watch on ships of 500 GT or more operating in unlimited waters but is also open to suitably qualified new entrants to the maritime industry.
The qualification covers the requirements for Watchkeeper Deck under the Maritime NZ Seafarer Certification and Operational Limits Framework.
