In this model course, one combined course has been written for both masters and chief officers. The material is set out assuming that students have previously completed the operational level training content required for watch keeping officer and they have some watch keeping experience. This does not preclude some of the content for both levels being run within the same training course but it is very important that students are familiar with the operational level content before attempting to develop the management level competence outlined in this model course.
This course is principally intended for officers for certification as master and chief mate on ships of 500 gross tonnage or more. Entrants should have successfully completed a course covering the minimum standards required for certification as officer in charge of a navigational watch on ships of 500 gross tonnage or more (see IMO Model Course No. 7.03, Officer in Charge of a Navigational Watch). In addition they should have completed approved seagoing service as officer in charge of a navigational watch in accordance with STCW 2010 regulation II/2, paragraph 2.
