STCW 2010 MANILA AMENDMENTS – CREW CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS Amendment No.1 – 5 January 2016

The STCW Convention 1978 (amended 1995) has been amended again by the 2010 Manila Amendments and contains new and refresher training requirements for all seafarers. The below requirements will come into force on 01 January 2017 and have been adopted by all white list flag states including:

  •   MCA
  •   Cayman Islands
  •   Marshall Islands
  •   Malta
  •   Bermuda
  •   Isle of Man

    The purpose of this document is to help seafarers keep their certificates valid. It is not a guide for progressing CoCs or certificates.

    Please note that this information is correct as at December 2015 based on MCA publications (listed at the back). Other countries may have slight variations. We will endeavour to inform you of any subsequent changes.

1. Basic Safety Training

If a seafarer serving onboard a vessel is qualified in any of the following he must, as of 01 January 2017, have documentary evidence of either completing the training course or updating training within the last 5 years;

  •   Proficiency in Personal Survival Techniques (PST)* (A-V1/1-1)
  •   Proficiency in Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting (FP&FF) (STCW A-VI/1-2)*
  •   Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats other than Fast Rescue Boats

    (PSC&RB) (STCW A-VI/2-1)**

  •   Proficiency in Fast Rescue Boats (PFRB) (STCW A-VI/2-2)*
  •   Proficiency in Advanced Fire Fighting (AFF) (STCW A-VI/3)**

    * MCA will accept certificates issued under the authority of any IMO ‘White List’ country.

    ** MCA will accept certificates issued by any EU Member State, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.

    NB: training centres will only accept candidates onto a refresher course if their original certification meets the above criteria. Therefore some candidates may need to complete the entire course if they fail to meet the above criteria.

FLEETCIRCULAR | STCW 2010 Manila Amendments – Seafarer certification requirements 1

11/2015

Proficiency in Survival Craft & Rescue Boats (other than Fast Rescue Boats) (PSCRB) (A- V1/2)
Seafarers who have the relevant duties onboard and who holds an existing PSCRB qualification are required to complete an updated proficiency training course every 5 years to maintain proficiency.

Recognised equivalent pre 31/01/2000

  •   Proficiency in Survival Craft
  •   Lifeboatmans Certificate

    Proficiency in Fast Rescue Boats (PFRB) (STCW A-VI/2-2)

    This course is designed for seafarers who hold a PSCRB certificate and have fast rescue boat duties onboard.

    Advanced Fire Fighting (STCW A-VI/3)

    For seafarers designated to control firefighting operations.

2. Medical First Aid (A-VI/4)

This four-day course is for seafarers designated to provide first aid on board ship. Currently, this does not need to have been issued within the preceding 5 years.

MCA will accept certificates issued by any EU Member State, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.

3. Proficiency in Medical Care (STCW A-VI/4-2)

The Master and any person designated to take charge of medical care and medicines onboard, must hold a recognised Proficiency in Medical Care (STCW A-VI/4-2) certificate issued within the preceding 5 years.

MCA will accept certificates issued by any EU Member State, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.

4. Electronic Chart Display Information System (ECDIS) (A-II/1 and A-II/2)

This applies to all navigational watch keeping officers.

All deck officers need to undertake a 5 day generic ECDIS course before either applying or revalidating their UK Deck CoC.

The Master and all watch keepers on ECDIS equipped vessels must also receive type specific ECDIS training. For guidance on arranging type-specific ECDIS training, please contact the relevant Yacht Manager Assistant (YMA).

Notes:

  • Deck officers whose certification was issued before 01 January 2005 will need to undertake the ECDIS course.
  • Navigation Aids and Equipment Simulator (NAEST) course criteria have now been updated by MCA, MNTB and IAMI to include the generic ECDIS requirements.

    If an ECDIS certificate is not included with an application, the CoC will have the following limitation: “From 1 January 2017, this certificate is not valid for service on ships fitted with ECDIS”

FLEETCIRCULAR | STCW 2010 Manila Amendments – Seafarer certification requirements 2

5. GMDSS General Operator’s Certificate (GOC) A-IV/2

This certificate qualifies the holder to operate a suitably licenced marine radiotelephone, radio telex or satellite mobile earth station in any sea area.

MCA will accept certificates issued by any EU member state and those listed on the approved list available from the MCA website.

6. Human element, leadership and management training (HELM)

This applies to deck and engineer officers at management level.

The 2010 Manila Amendment to the STCW Code brings in new requirements for leadership and management. Seafarers meeting the current CoC revalidation requirements will not need to undertake the additional training in order to revalidate their existing CoC. Candidates for new CoCs, and those upgrading to the next level will be required to undertake the new training in full.

Officer of the Watch (unlimited or yachts) will be required to complete a 3 day Human Element, Leadership and Management (Operational Level) course when applying for their CoC.

Chief Mate (unlimited or yachts) will be required to complete a 5 day Human Element, Leadership and Management (Management Level) course when applying for their CoC.

MCA CoC holders: if you are revalidating your CoC using sea service or time spent in an acceptable occupation you will not be required to undertake additional HELM training. You are considered to have gained sufficient knowledge, understanding and proficiency in HELM and bridge/ engine room resource management. This will not alter after 31 December 2016.

Candidates obtaining a Chief Mate (<3000GT) CoC directly without holding an OOW <3000GT will be required to complete both HELM (O) and HELM (M).

7. Additional Safety Training for passenger ships

Certificates requiring revalidation (every 5 years) on Port State Control (PSC) vessels (in addition to the above):

  • Crowd Management (A-V/2.4)
  • Passenger Safety Training (A-V/2.5)
  • Crisis Management & Human Behaviour training (A-V/2.6)
  • Passenger Safety, Cargo Safety & Hull Integrity training (A-V/2.7)

    8. Able Seafarer Deck (A-II/5)

    For Able Seafarer Deck serving on a seagoing ship of 500GT or more.

    The STCW qualification of Able Seafarer Deck is intended to reflect the wide range of tasks undertaken by more experienced deck ratings and should serve as an incentive for training and career progression.

    The STCW Regulation II/5 Able Seafarer Deck will replace the current AB CoC. The requirements are:

  • Be not less than 18 years of age
  • Hold STCW basic training

11/2015

FLEETCIRCULAR | STCW 2010 Manila Amendments – Seafarer certification requirements 3

11/2015

  • Gain 12 months sea service in the deck department whilst holding a Navigational Watch Rating (NWR) or Efficient Deck Hand (EDH) certificate.
  • Hold an EDH certificate
  • Hold an Certificate of Proficiency in Survival Craft & Rescue Boat
  • Hold and ENG1 or equivalent

    Administrations will compare the standards of competence required of Able Seafarers Deck for certificates issued before 01 January 2012 with those specified in the revised STCW Code and will determine the need for the qualifications to be updated. It is therefore possible that some administrations will require some ratings to upgrade their training.

    International Shipping Federation (ISF) On Board Training Record Books for Deck Ratings have been revised. Updates will follow shortly.

    9. Deck Rating (Navigational Watch) (A-II/4)

    Seafarers wishing to sail as a Deck Rating (Nav Watch) will need to gain an unrestricted NWR certificate Regulation II/4.

    There is no requirement to upgrade current held rating certificates. To apply for a NWR certificate seafarers must meet the following requirements:

  • Be at least 17 years old
  • Have 6 months sea service on vessels of at least 15m or over in load line length
  • Have completed the four elements of STCW basic training
  • Have completed the NWR training record book (additional items from the

    previous training record book)

  • Hold an ENG1 or equivalent

    NB The yacht rating certificate remains the same – for further information see MSN 1862 (M).

    10. Security Training

    Since January 2014 it is a mandatory requirement for all seafarers, regardless of their employed capacity, to have a basic awareness of the security threats to vessels they are working on. Additionally it will be a legal requirement for those employed on vessels and who are given designated security duties as part of the ship security plan, to have IMO recognised training in accordance with STCW. Under the amended legislation, there are four levels of security training:

  • Security Awareness (A-VI/6-1) (all)
  • Security familiarisation (all)
  • Designated Security Duties (A-VI/6-2) (seafarers with designated security duties)
  • Shipboard Security Officer (A-VI/5) all commercial vessels >500GT must have at

    least one and preferably two onboard

    11. High Voltage – Operational & Management Levels (Table A-III/1)

    The 2010 Manila Amendments bring in the requirement for engineers to undergo education and training in High Voltage systems, at both operational and management levels. This requirement comes into force on 01 January 2017 but has affected the revalidation of Engineering CoCs since 01 January 2012. There is no requirement for additional training to be undertaken by all existing Engineer Officers, whether or not they intend to work on ships having High Voltage systems. However, High Voltage

FLEETCIRCULAR | STCW 2010 Manila Amendments – Seafarer certification requirements 4

11/2015

training requirements will be incorporated in the future training programmes of Engineer Officers at both the operational and management levels.

No additional action is required for Engineer Officers who do not work on or do not intend to work on ships with HV systems. These Engineers will receive the following CoC limitation:

“From the 01 January 2017 this certificate is not valid for service on ships fitted with High Voltage (over 1000V) systems”.

If you have completed a HV course prior to 01 July 2013 that was not MCA approved, please check with MCA to see if it will be accepted.

12. Able Seafarer Engine (A-III/5)

Able Seafarer Engine is a new grade for which new Competence Tables are included in STCW 2010, for Able Seafarer Engine serving on seagoing ships powered by main propulsion machinery of 750 kW propulsion power or more.

Section A-III/5 sets out mandatory minimum requirements for certification of ratings as able seafarer engine in a manned engine-room or designated to perform duties in a periodically unmanned engine-room.

It is possible that some administrations will require some engine ratings to upgrade their training.

ISF On Board Training Record Book for Engine Ratings have been revised. Further details will follow shortly.

13. Watch Rating Engine (A-III/4)

Every Rating forming part of an engine-room watch on a sea-going vessel shall be required to demonstrate the competence to perform the marine engineering function at the support level, as specific in A-III/4.

14. Electro-technical officer (ETO) certification (A-III/6) & Electro-technical Rating (ETR) (A-III/7)
For those vessels where dedicated electro-technical personnel are required as stated on the MSMD, STCW 2010 includes for the first time under Regulations III/6 and III/7 mandatory minimum requirements for certificates of electro-technical officers (ETOs) and ratings respectively.

Any vessel carrying an ETO as required by their MSMD, the ETO must hold an STCW ETO Certificate of Competence.

Please refer to MSN 1860 (M) for further guidance.

15. Electro-technical Rating (A-III/7)

Note: there are many interchangeable competences between the Able Seafarer Engine and the Electro-Technical Rating. It is therefore possible to consider the electro- technical rating aspects as a supplement to the Able Seafarer Engine training.

A new ISF Onboard Training Record Book for Electro-Technical Ratings have been developed. Further details will follow shortly.

FLEETCIRCULAR | STCW 2010 Manila Amendments – Seafarer certification requirements 5

16. Efficient Deck Hand (EDH) (A-II/5)

The EDH course forms part of the education and training required to obtain an OOW Certificate of Competency.

Officer of the Watch (Yachts, less than 3,000GT) candidates will be required to complete a 5 day Efficient Deck Hand course before completing the OOW course but for OOW (unlimited) the EDH is part of the course.

The EDH certificate covers basic seamanship practice and the Code of Safe Working Practice for the Merchant Navy. Note: EDH will not be required for revalidation purposes.

The following certification and experience will permit entry on to an EDH course and examination:

  • MCA accredited Yachtmaster Offshore certificate and shorebased course
  • Yacht rating with at least 6 months sea service and a steering certificate or NWR

    cert

    Note:

  •   Before an EDH certificate can be issued a minimum of 6 month sea service on vessels of more than 15m is required.
  •   Current holders of OOW CoCs do not need to attend EDH training.
  •   Please note that further sea time is required following EDH completion prior to

    OOW application.

    ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS
    Revalidation of CoCs from 1 January 2017
    Seafarers revalidating their Certificates of Competency (CoC) after 01 January 2017 will need to submit documentary evidence of having completed approved updating/ refresher training. There is no need to provide documentary evidence for having completed updating-refresher training if a seafarer applies for CoC revalidation before 01 January 2017.

    Revalidation of CoCs (every 5 years) will require evidence of:

  • Updating/ refresher training
  • ECDIS for Deck Officers
  • High Voltage for Engineering Officers (if appropriate)
  • Compliance with the standards of medical fitness by providing a valid seafarer medical certificate
  • Advanced Fire Fighting
  • Certificate of Proficiency in Medical Care, issued within the last 5 years
  • GMDSS certificate for Deck Officers
  • Evidence of continued professional competence. This will be in the form of sea

    service testimonial and certificate of discharge.

    For seafarers serving on vessels which are subject to Port State Control inspections, the following certificates require revalidation every 5 years:

  • Crowd Management training (A-V/2.4)
  • Crisis Management & Human Behaviour’ training (Reg V/2.6)
  • Passenger Safety (A-V/2.5)
  • Cargo Safety & Hull Integrity’ training (A-V/2.7)
