Training courses developed in line with these criteria, delivered at centres approved by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), will cover:

 

  • Basic training for service on ships operating in polar waters (section 2)

  • Advanced training for service on ships operating in polar waters (section 3).

 

The specifications described in this document have been developed by the Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) in conjunction with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA). The MCA has agreed with the MNTB that the specifications described in this document will satisfy the requirements for approved training. Conditions for MCA approval of short courses are contained in Annex A, which should be used in conjunction with the MCA guide to approval of regulatory training requirements.

 

The national occupational standards relating to this training are:

 

A32        Maintain safe, legal and effective working practices on board a vessel

A33        Ensure safe, legal and effective working practices on board a vessel

B13         Contribute to vessel operations

B14         Monitor and control vessel operations

B15         Plan and direct vessel operations.

 

This training is relevant to certificated seafarers (masters and officers in charge of a navigational watch) that require the knowledge and understanding for service on ships operating in polar waters. The MNTB considers this training to be of value and relevance to engineering officers in charge of an engine room watch. Whilst not an STCW regulatory requirement, training establishments and companies may wish to offer and provide this training to relevant engineering staff.

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.
