  • Demonstrating an understanding of the world as a set of related systems where the proper application of systems, policies and procedures related to the operation of a vessel involved in in-shore maritime operations impacts either positively or negatively on safety. 

  • ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA 
    The outcomes are specified in terms of a combination of Specific and Critical Cross-Field Outcomes as defined in the different unit standards. On achieving this Qualification, a Learner is able to:

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 1:
  • First aid is applied on board a vessel in accordance with regulated requirements.
  • Fire fighting and prevention procedures are carried out to ensure the safety of self and others onboard a vessel.
  • Life-raft activities are carried out in accordance with regulated requirements.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 2:
  • An environmental policy implementation plan is compiled to ensure compliance with maritime legislation and shipboard policies and practices.
  • Duties are performed to prevent pollution.
  • A pollution situation is dealt with in terms of maritime legislation and shipboard practices.

    Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 3:
  • The management of people on board a vessel is understood and implemented in accordance with maritime legislation and shipboard practices.
  • Vessel construction and stability is understood in order to operate a vessel in a safe manner.

    Integrated Assessment:

    The term `Integrated Assessment` implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together and that more than one competency, assessment criterion and specific outcome should be assessed together, where possible. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflective competencies.

    Assessment of communication and mathematical literacy should be integrated as far as possible with other aspects and should use authentic inshore maritime operational contexts wherever possible. A variety of methods must be used in assessment and tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working or will work.

    The achievement of applied competence of this Qualification will be demonstrated if the learner is able to apply operational knowledge and skills to operate on board a sea going vessel in a safe manner.

    Assessors should note that evidence of integration could well be presented by candidates when being assessed against the individual unit standards. Thus, there should not necessarily be separate assessments for each unit standard and then further assessment for integration. Well designed assessments should make it possible to gain evidence against each unit standard while at the same time gaining evidence of integration.

    Where it is not possible to assess the learner in the workplace or on-the-job, simulations, case studies, role-plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    An Inshore Maritime Operation is an area with globally recognised best practices, standards and Qualifications. This Qualification and set of Unit Standards utilises international and locally recognised best practice and standards.

    The International Convention for Standards for Training and Certification and Watchkeeping for Fishing Vessel Personnel (STCW-F) was adopted in July 1995 by a diplomatic conference convened under the auspices of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

    South Africa is a member of the IMO Council and is expected to support this initiative and this Qualification complies with these principles and practices.

    The South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) introduced in domestic law the principles and standards embodied in the convention. This Qualification is an example of that and the majority of unit standards were drawn up with reference to the related maritime legislation, amendments and codes.

    The following Qualifications, courses and modules were used as part of the international comparability exercise. All the countries shown below were used because they are all party to the International Convention for Standards for Training and Certification and Watchkeeping for Fishing Vessel Personnel (STCW-F) was adopted in July 1995.

    Papua New Guinea - National Fisheries College:

    Certificate in Fishing Operations 1 (CFO1):

    A course for deckhand Qualifications for fishing boat crews:
  • Basis skills required for employment as qualified deckhands on fishing boats.
  • Safe working practices, safety at seas, radio operations, deck skills, fish quality and handling.

    Certificate in Small Fishing Operations 1 and 2:
  • Boat Safety.
  • Basic Navigation.
  • Mechanical maintenance and repair.
  • Fishing Gear Design.
  • Fishing Operations.
  • Seafood Handling.
  • Small Business Management.
  • Fisheries Resources Management.

    The above Qualifications compare well with the South African Unit Standards that are more specifically based on the Fishing Specific Elective category as well as the use of radio's and safety issues. These Qualifications also emphasise the importance of discipline and team work aboard a vessel.

    United Kingdom-Maritime Training (Plymouth):

    Efficient Deck Hand (Ref.MCA-MGN 10):
  • Meaning of common nautical terms.
  • Name and function of various parts and equipment of the ship.

    The courses and Qualifications offered by the United Kingdom are also well aligned with ours. However these are specifically aimed at people working on the deck of a vessel and exclude the Engineering and Fishing specific Elective components of the South African Qualification.

    Australia-Australian Maritime College-School of Maritime Industry Operations (SMIO):

    Deck Hand Course:
  • First Aid.
  • Fire-fighting.
  • Survival at Sea.
  • Occupational Health and Safety.
  • Seamanship Skills.

    The above course only offers the learners skills which will allow them to become licensed to be able to work on board a vessel. It does not prepare them in any way for the other disciples required to be a competent Deck Hand or Engineer aboard a vessel.

    United States; Fort Lauderdale-Maritime Professional Training Masters, Mates and Engineers Inc:

    Courses:

    Lifeboatman/Proficiency in survival Craft and Rescue Boats:
  • Survival methods.
  • Inflatable liferafts.

    The Courses offered by the United States, as with the Australian ones also only cover certain aspects of working on board a vessel. They do however place a huge emphasis on the safety aspect of working on board a vessel. It also covers an in-depth knowledge of navigation, which is offered at a higher level in South Africa.

    India-International Maritime Training Centre (Mumbai):

    Practical Deck Skills Workshop:
  • Practical training in knots, bends, hitches and splices with synthetic and natural fibre rope.
  • Practical training in splices with wire rope.
  • Surface maintenance theory and procedures.
  • General maintenance of deck equipment.

    This course does not compare well to its South African counter part as it only focuses on working with ropes and the general maintenance on board a vessel.

    New Zealand - New Zealand Qualifications Authority.
  • National Certificate in Seafood Vessel Operations (Fishing Technology) Level 3, 76 Credits.
    The first noticeable difference between the South African Qualification and the New Zealand one is the number of credits available for the Qualification. It goes without saying that the South African Qualification together with its associated Unit Standards is far more comprehensive. The other difference is that it is pitched at a higher level, which is offered at NQF Level 3 in South Africa.

    The contents of the above international Qualifications, courses and modules are reflected clearly in this Qualification's Exit Level Outcomes, in the related Associated Assessment Criteria and in the Unit Standards. It is evident that the international Qualifications and the South African Qualification have very similar, if not the same, contents. Again it is clear that the South African Qualification offers a more comprehensive coverage than any of its international counterparts.
