    Abstract

    The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is revising the International Convention on Standards of Training Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) 1978. The discussion about the revised Convention expected to become applicable in 1997 is followed and the role of simulation in it is considered. The situation in the simulator industry is reviewed. A co-operative approach by simulation providers is recommended in promoting and using this training technique. There is a trend in the revision process leading to a greater disparity of training standards. A strategy is proposed to maximise the advantage of marine simulation training.

    Abstract

    The 1995 amendments to the IMO Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (SCTW) stipulate that approved seagoing service for deck officers has to be recorded in a training record book. ISF training record books are recognised in the footnotes to the STCW Convention as a model for such documentation. This ISF On Board Training Record Book for Deck Cadets incorporates the competence standards for the Deck Department specified in Chapter 2 of the revised STCW Convention.

    Abstract

    The revision of the International Convention on Standards of Training Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers and the subsequent adoption of STCW 95 amendments will make a positive contribution towards the development of a safety culture through the establishment of international standards of training and assessment. The competence-based approach at the heart of the STCW Convention seeks to identify those skills that are key to safe and efficient shipboard operations.

The revision also provides the opportunity to use simulators for the assessment of competence. The revised STCW78 and the use of simulators is considered covering the impact of regulation 1/12 non-mandatory guidance performance standards and the implementation of STCW95.

    Abstract

    The IMO Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978 was substantially revised by a diplomatic conference in July 1995. The Convention as amended has become STCW 95. The amendments entered into force on 1 February 1997 and entail major new responsibilities both for governments and shipping companies. STCW 95 will be enforced through flag and port state control and companies will need to ensure that they can demonstrate that they are in full compliance. The aim of these checklists is to provide ship-operators with advice - in as concise a form as possible given the complexity of the requirements - on what needs to be done to expedite compliance, and the issues which every company needs to address immediately.
