This publication provides the criteria for the development of courses to deliver training for service on ships using fuels as covered within the IGF Code at basic and advanced levels, in accordance with international regulations for seafarer training.  The specifications have been developed by the MNTB in conjunction with the MCA.

 

The publication sets out the competences identified in Tables A-V/3-1 and A-V/3-2 of Regulation V/3 to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978.  For each competency, it lists the knowledge, understanding and proficiency required, the methods for demonstrating competence and the criteria for evaluating competence.

The MNTB is a voluntary body and a part of the UK Chamber of Shipping, the trade association for the UK shipping industry. We work closely with shipping and ship management companies, nautical educational establishments and organisations, seafarer trade unions, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and industry organisations with an interest in seafarer education and training.

The MNTB provides the link to government departments and bodies involved with the shipping industry as well as those involved with the UK skills agenda and education and training developments.  This includes the Department for Transport (DfT), the Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills (BIS), and UK education regulatory authorities and bodies.  The MNTB works closely with the Maritime Skills Alliance to achieve joint aims with partner organisations in the maritime sector.

We carry out a wide range of careers promotion activities through our ‘Careers at Seabrand.  This is currently under expansion to encompass the full range of careers activity at sea and within the shipping industry ashore and the wider maritime sector.
