This publication provides the criteria for the development of courses to deliver training in ship security, i.e. in security awareness; for seafarers with designated security duties; for the ship security officer (SSO); in accordance with international regulations for seafarer training.

Be the first to review this product

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

 

Proficiency in security awareness (section 2)

 

Proficiency for seafarers with designated security duties (section 3)

 

Proficiency for ship security officers (section 4)

 

Proficiency for company security officers (non STCW) (section 5)

 

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 competencies required for the security awareness and designated security duties training courses are effectively subsets of the existing ship security officer training. It has therefore been agreed that training centres that hold current MCA approval (i.e. have completed MCA initial or re-approval within the last five years) to deliver the STCW SSO course and use the same personnel, need only submit course material for the desk assessment, and additional QA procedures, if required, to gain approval to deliver these courses. Any such approval will be limited to the same re-approval date as the SSO course.

 

The national occupational standards relating to this training are:

 

  • A31 - Maintain personal health, safety and environmental standards on board a vessel

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

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

 

There is also a suite of Maritime Studies Qualifications which contain units relevant to this training; the specific units are:

  • Maritime employment, environmental and health and safety practice

  • Maintain safe and environmentally responsible working practices on board a vessel

  • Maritime security

What this document is about

This document provides the criteria for the development of courses to deliver training in ship security - i.e. in security awareness; for those with designated security duties; for the ship security officer (SSO); in accordance with international regulations for seafarer training. It also includes the mandatory (but non-STCW) requirement for training covering the role of the company security officer.

 

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

  • Proficiency in security awareness (section 2)

  • Proficiency for seafarers with designated security duties (section 3)

  • Proficiency for ship security officers (section 4)

  • Proficiency for company security officers (non STCW) (section 5)

Why these criteria have been developed

These criteria have been developed to deliver education and training covering security at sea to meet specific parts of the regulatory requirements of Tables A-VI/6-1, A-VI/6-2 and A-VI/5 of the Annex to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978, as amended, hereafter referred to as STCW. They also cover the mandatory requirements concerning the company security officer, as set out in Chapter XI-2 of the Annex to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, as amended and in Part A of the ISPS Code.

 

Who the training is aimed at

This training is required by seafarers seeking certification under:

a. STCW Regulation VI/6 – training or instruction covering security awareness for all seafarers other than those holding higher STCW security certification;

b. STCW Regulation VI/6 – training or instruction for seafarers with designated security duties;

c. STCW Regulation VI/5 – training or instruction for ship security officers;

d. ISPS Code Section 13 – training or instruction for company security officers.

 

Aims of the training

The overall aim is to provide seafarers with the necessary knowledge, understanding and proficiency to protect and maintain their own and others’ security at sea in accordance with international regulations.

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 Sea’ brand. 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.
