Particular effort is required by engineering faculties to amend programs to better enable demonstration of competence.
Here we have a greater degree of emphasis on the demonstration of competence

Exploring Strategic Approaches to Managing Competence Session Chairman: Martin Burley New Zealand Maritime School
(some) ResolutionsInclude:• Accommodation for trainees• Revision of existing model courses• Promotion of technical knowledge, skills & professionalism of seafarers• Measures to ensure the competency of masters & officers of ships operating in polar waters
A shift in emphasis• Demonstration of competence• Maintaining competence – Basic Safety• Emphasis on – Leadership – Environmental training
Company Responsibilities• STCW Part B Self Regulation, Best Practices? – Offshore vessels & MOU’s – Dynamic Positioning – Ships in Polar waters
Hours of Rest• 10h in any 24h – Max 2 periods, one period of more than 6 hours• 77 hours in any 7 day period• May still be over-ridden by Master• Flag may allow 70 hours in 7 days for 2 weeks, & rest in 2 x 24 hour periods to be taken in 3 periods.• Signed records to be maintained
STCW & The Environment “…the master has ultimate responsibility for the safety ofthe ship, its passengers, crew andcargo, and for the protection of the marine environment against pollution by the ship…”
Academic Focus• Designing courses to engage students assess competence• Much more emphasis on non-technical• Holistic approach• Engage and assist Flag State with the transition process
Quotes“Smarter people (based) strategies are required” ”(there is a) War on talent” “(we should be) exerting pressure on maritime administrations to uphold training standards” The industry is attracting cadets yet “berths are not being made available!”
Conclusion• STCW still the minimum standard• Shared responsibilities between Ship (Shipmanager/Crew Manager), MET & Flag Administration• For the shipowners & managers, a long term people-focused strategy should be developed
Do maritime schools (worldwide) produce graduatesthat are the finished article? Mark Longstaff I dont believe so and verging on dangerous to have ex students believe that they were finished. That comes from exposure to people, various ships/cargoes and experiences. A good school will prepare the majority well and encourage them to continue to learn and seek out further knowledge.
Megan Smith My answer would be “no” as a goodofficer never stops learning.Changes to laws, advances in technology, improvedunderstanding in cause and effect discovered byresearch all mean that a graduate of even the bestmaritime school must always learn more and moreright up to and past the rank of captain.That means it should never be taken for grantedthat a qualified officer is a "finely polished”.
Charles Pagler They are only finished to a level thatis acceptable to companies to recruit as juniorofficers (i.e. rookies with all the confidence in theworld but none of the experience).Once youre on the job is when you start the reallife learning. I know I have many years ahead of mebefore I can even contemplate questioning whetherIm the finished article.
Samuel Daguio Maritime school is just a steppingstone to produce graduates, but the ladder ofsuccess and the actual learning is onboard the ship.Mike Cunningham Martin, we too in our industry ofShip repair take graduates from numerous colleges &universities but having a degree is only the startpoint in their career path, ideally we need themduring the course to "mold" them.
