3 1. Overview Ancillary certificates This guideline provides information about the ancillary (additional) proficiencies required for New Zealand certificates of competency and certificates of proficiency, and for some endorsements. As well as the skills and expertise required for a particular certificate and obtained from the core training, Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) may require evidence of other proficiencies. These ancillary proficiencies range from requirements for all seafarers to show they have competency in basic personal safety through to specific additional training required for seafarers who hold designated passenger or security responsibilities and duties. This guideline does not cover recognition of equivalent ancillary proficiencies obtained outside New Zealand. For information about recognition, refer to the guidelines on the MNZ website: maritimenz.govt.nz/seafarers MNZ does not issue ancillary proficiency certificates; these are generally issued by training providers following completion of training courses that have been approved or accepted by the Director of MNZ as satisfactorily meeting the standards for the proficiencies, as set out in the schedule to Part 32 of the Maritime Rules. In some circumstances, the training may be provided by a ship s operator. Disclaimer: These guidelines provide information and explanations about the requirements set out in the maritime rules, but are not a substitute for the rules themselves, which are the law. These guidelines refer to provisions in Maritime Rules Part 32, Seafarer Certification. The Director of Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) will grant a certificate only when satisfied that all requirements have been met. In this guideline, any references to we or Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) relating to a decision about the issue or renewal of any seafarer certificate are references to the Director or a person acting under the Director s delegated authority. maritimenz.govt.nz/rules Ancillary proficiencies Guidance for seafarers Page 3 of 32

4 2. National ancillary proficiency requirements 2.1 First aid This certificate is the same as Elementary First Aid, which is required as part of STCW and STCW-F Basic Training. It is required for the following New Zealand certificates issued by MNZ: Qualified Deck Crew Skipper Restricted Limits Skipper Restricted Limits <24m Skipper Restricted Limits <500GT Skipper Restricted Limits GT Skipper Coastal/Offshore Marine Engineer Class 6. Training You must attend and pass a training course that meets the following New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) assessment standards: 6400, 6401, 6402 or or 6400, 26551, or equivalent revised standards acceptable to the Director, as published on the MNZ website. Your training provider must be registered or accredited by NZQA to provide the first aid training. MNZ will accept documentary evidence issued by your training provider (generally in the form of a certificate), which must detail the assessment standards passed. MNZ does not issue first aid certificates. Although not a requirement in the Maritime Rules, MNZ strongly recommends that you keep your first aid certificate current. New Zealand first aid certificates generally have a limited duration set by the training provider or issuing organisation (usually two years), and generally require refresher training to ensure the proficiency remains valid.

11 4. STCW-F basic safety training STCW-F basic safety training is required for the following New Zealand certificates issued by MNZ: Advanced Deckhand Fishing Mate Fishing Vessel Limited Skipper Fishing Vessel Limited Mate Fishing Vessel Unlimited Skipper Fishing Vessel Unlimited. Training requirements You must attend and complete training courses that meet STCW-F requirements for ancillary proficiency in basic safety training, as set out in STCW-F chapter III regulation 1. Table 1 STCW-F requirements for basic safety training Proficiency National award or equivalent Personal survival US Fire prevention and fire fighting US 4138 Elementary first aid 6400, 6401, 6402 or 6400, 26551, Emergency procedures Prevention of marine pollution STCW A-VI/1-4 Prevention of shipboard accidents Alternatively, MNZ will accept an STCW basic training certificate that complies with STCW Section A-VI/1 paragraph 2. Training courses Training for STCW-F basic safety ancillary proficiencies is usually part of the wider training course for STCW-F certificates. Training may be provided for each proficiency or as a single course covering all components, provided it covers the required STCW-F standards and has been approved: under the Education Act or by the Director of MNZ. Your training provider must be registered or accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) to provide training for each of the required national awards. Ancillary proficiencies Guidance for seafarers Page 11 of 32

12 4. STCW-F basic safety training (continued) Acceptable evidence When they apply for their certificate, applicants for Advanced Deckhand Fishing are required to provide documentary evidence that they have attended and passed basic training. This should be issued by the training provider and include: a unique reference number the STCW-F standards passed the date of issue the training provider s NZQA registration/accreditation number and/or MNZ course approval number. The evidence may be provided individually for each component or as a single document covering all components of STCW-F basic safety training. Other jurisdiction requirements Some jurisdictions may require seafarers evidence of having completed STCW-F basic safety training to be: provided separately (even if it is part of training requirements for the current certificate of competency they hold) documented in a single STCW-F basic safety training certificate. Although there is no requirement in STCW-F for a seafarer to provide this evidence, if you intend to use your certificate in other jurisdictions you should ask your training provider to issue a single STCW-F basic safety training certificate where possible (for example, in addition to any higher course or qualification for a STCW certificate of competency). MNZ does not issue ancillary certificates of proficiency in STCW-F basic safety training. There are no ongoing competency requirements. However, we encourage you to take steps to maintain currency of all of your ancillary competencies and to maintain accurate records. STCW-F is referred to in maritime rules relating to fishing certificates as a suitable international standard. If you wish to maintain your certificate to this standard, note that STCW-F may in future introduce similar currency requirements for ancillary proficiencies as are required by STCW. Ancillary proficiencies Guidance for seafarers Page 12 of 32

13 5. STCW ancillary proficiency requirements All certificated or non-certificated crew assigned specific duties must ensure their training for the respective proficiencies is current. The ancillary certificate requirements are as follows: for safety, security or pollution prevention duties, a current STCW basic training ancillary certificate (A-VI/1 of STCW) to launch or be in charge of survival craft or a rescue boat, a certificate of proficiency in survival craft and rescue boats other than fast rescue boats (A-VI/2 of STCW) to launch or be in charge of a fast rescue boat, a certificate of proficiency in fast rescue boats (A- VI/2 of STCW) to control fire-fighting operations, a certificate of proficiency in advanced fire fighting (A-VI/3 of STCW) to provide medical first aid, a certificate of proficiency in medical first aid (A-VI/4 of STCW) to take charge of medical first aid or medical care, a certificate of proficiency in charge of medical care (A-VI/4 of the STCW code). To maintain currency, the ancillary certificate holder needs to keep records of any on-board training and any additional refresher training undertaken in the previous five years. Ancillary proficiencies Guidance for seafarers Page 13 of 32

14 5.1 Currency From 1 January 2017, seafarers who are required under STCW to hold certificates in the following ancillary proficiencies must provide evidence every five years of having maintained the required standards of competence to undertake the required tasks, duties and responsibilities: basic training (personal survival techniques, and fire prevention and fire fighting) proficiency in survival craft and rescue boats other than fast rescue boats proficiency in fast rescue boats advanced fire fighting. Seafarers renewing their certificates after 1 January 2017 must submit documentary evidence of having completed MNZ-approved updating or refresher training where required. Seafarers applying to renew a certificate of competency before 1 January 2017 do not need to provide the documentary evidence to MNZ. In order for your certificate to be valid for service beyond 31 December 2016, you must still complete any relevant refresher training before 1 January If you are using alternatives to sea service for renewing your certificates of competency, you will not be able to sit the refresher course. This is because the refresher courses require sea time and completion of on-board drills that cannot be checked in the classroom. Evidence of ongoing competence is not required for the following proficiencies: medical first aid medical care ship security officer. Although there is no requirement in STCW or the maritime rules, MNZ strongly recommends that medical proficiency certificates (such as first aid, medical first aid and medical care) are kept current. These certificates normally have a set expiry date (often two years) unless the holder completes refresher training. Ancillary proficiencies Guidance for seafarers Page 14 of 32

15 5.2 Safety familiarisation All certificated and non-certificated crew of ships operating under STCW and the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) must have completed safety familiarisation training for the ship they will be serving on, as detailed in A-VI/1.1 of STCW. This involves on-board training carried out by the operator of the ship (in accordance with the vessel s safety management system). There are no ongoing competence requirements, other than those set out in a ship s ISM manual (such as for drills). Ancillary proficiencies Guidance for seafarers Page 15 of 32

16 5.3 Passenger safety All designated crew and officers on passenger ships who have specific responsibilities on passenger ships must have the relevant additional ancillary proficiency training, as set out in the table below. Table 2 Passenger ship requirements Responsibility Assigned crew Officers On-board service Embarking/disembarking passengers, loading/unloading/securing cargo, closing hull openings Assist in emergency response Safety of passengers in emergency situations Ancillary proficiency in safety training (passengers in passenger space) Ancillary proficiency in passenger safety, cargo safety and hull integrity Ancillary proficiency in crowd management Ancillary proficiency in crisis management and human behaviour Ancillary proficiency in safety training (passengers in passenger space) (applies to assigned officers) Ancillary proficiency in passenger safety, cargo safety and hull integrity (applies to master, chief mate, chief engineer, second engineer) Ancillary proficiency in crowd management (applies to all officers) Ancillary proficiency in crisis management and human behaviour (applies to all officers) Table 3 Passenger ship training requirements Ancillary proficiency STCW standard Crowd management training Section A-V/2.1 Safety training (passengers in passenger space) Section A-V/2.2 Crisis management and human behaviour Section A-V/2.3 Passenger safety, cargo safety and hull integrity training Section A-V/2.4 Acceptable evidence You must be able to provide documentary evidence of having completed: on-board training provided by your master or operator a training course by a training provider approved by the Director of MNZ. is required, and you must be able to provide evidence that you have completed refresher training or maintained competence (for example, through on-board refresher training) during the past five years.

17 5.4 Security Operators of ships required to comply with the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS code) are required to ensure that seafarers have the appropriate security training as set out in their ship security plan. Operators will require seafarers who work on ISPS ships to meet STCW requirements for security-related training. All seafarers who wish to work on such ships should have completed security familiarisation and security awareness training. STCW also requires seafarers with designated security duties and ship security officers to have completed additional training. Security familiarisation All certificated and non-certificated crew on passenger ships on international voyages (that is, those required to comply with the ISPS code) should have completed security familiarisation training that meets the requirements of A-VI/6.1 of STCW. Training is usually provided by the ship security officer but can be given by an equally qualified person approved by the ship s operator. The operator must provide the seafarer with documentary evidence that they have received the security familiarisation training. Security awareness From 1 January 2014, all seafarers seeking new certificates or renewing existing certificates who wish to work on ISPS ships should complete security awareness training that meets the requirements set out in Table A-VI/6-1 of STCW. Training To meet the STCW standard for work on an ISPS ship, the seafarer must attend and pass a training course, or complete on-board training, that is acceptable to the Director of MNZ under the Maritime Security Act 2004 as meeting the training and competency standards set out in Table A-VI/6-1 of STCW. Security awareness training may be part of the training required for a certificate of proficiency or competency, or a separate course acceptable to the Director under the Maritime Security Act. Training may also be provided as part of an approved on-board training programme run by the ship s operator. Acceptable evidence MNZ will accept documentary evidence issued by your training provider or ship operator (generally in the form of a certificate), which must detail the STCW standards passed. If you do not provide this ancillary certificate, your certificate will have a condition stating that without a current proficiency in security awareness training (STCW A-VI/6-1), it is not valid for vessels that ISPS applies to. MNZ does not issue security awareness certificates. A list of training providers that provide security awareness training courses can be found on MNZ s website: maritimenz.govt.nz/seafarers. There are no ongoing competence requirements. Ancillary proficiencies Guidance for seafarers Page 17 of 32

18 Seafarers with designated security duties After 1 January 2014, to meet the STCW standard for work on an ISPS ship, all seafarers who have designated security duties on board ISPS ships should complete the training requirements set out in Table A-VI/6-2 of STCW. From 1 January 2017, all seafarers who work on an ISPS ship should hold an endorsement or a certificate of ancillary proficiency in designated security duties. Training You should attend and pass a training course or complete on-board training that is acceptable to the Director of MNZ under the Maritime Security Act 2004 as meeting the training and competency standards set out in Table A-VI/6-2 of STCW. Designated security duties training may be part of the training course for a certificate of competency or proficiency, or a separate course acceptable to the Director under the Maritime Security Act. Training may also be provided as part of an approved on-board training programme run by the ship s operator. Acceptable evidence MNZ does not issue designated security duties certificates. There are no ongoing competency requirements. Ship security officers The ship security officer is the seafarer on board a ship who is designated by the ship s operators as responsible for the security of the ship, including the implementation and maintenance of the ship security plan, and for liaison with the port facility security officer. The ship security officer should hold a certificate of proficiency that has been issued in accordance with regulation VI/5 of STCW.
