2-day program for up to four Masters
Emergency Management at Sea covers the role of the Master of a vessel as the Incident Commander to manage critical incidents at sea on a vessel.
A range of emergency scenarios will take place to ensure the standards of performance are covered. Each scenario will be based around a major incident, whilst the vessel is underway, chosen from:
- Loss of propulsion
- Onboard fire or explosion
- Man overboard
- Helicopter incident
- Oil spill
- Multiple casualties
- Wave damage
- Loss of stability
This Unit of Competence is concerned principally with emergencies involving large numbers of people and which by their very nature are threats to life, the vessel or the environment. ERGT Australia will deliver and assess candidates against element 5 of TDMMF507C Develop Emergency and Damage Control Plans and Handle Emergency Situations on board a Vessel. A Statement of Attainment will be issued once evidence to support the other elements is provided.
ERGT recommends requalification takes place every two to three years.
