BOATMASTER TRAINING COURSES
Wednesday 12th June 2013

Ondeck is pleased to be able to offer the training courses in line with the requirements of ADOMS and the SVC. The official circular concerning these new ADOMS requirements can be read here or found at http://abregistry.ag/information-center/circulars/local-circulars/.

There are a number of courses that will be necessary for anyone seeking an examination directly with ADOMS.

1. Boatmaster Theory

This covers all the aspects required by the code. The course is not mandatory but it is highly recommended and will mean that examination candidates do not have to be tested on all of the theory by ADOMS.

It will be around 30 hours of classroom based training with a multiple choice exam at the end.

We will be seeking to run the course at times that will fit with the work schedules of those already working in the industry.

A certificate with photo ID will be provided on successful completion.

2. Boatmaster Preparation

This preparation course aims to prepare and work on practical elements of the syllabus that may be covered in the examination. Specifically practical navigation, safety and man overboard procedures, and general boat handling.
The preparation would be a minimum of 2 days and up to 5 days depending on needs.

It will be tailored to the needs of the specific individuals and for that reason we would be looking to take a maximum of 3 candidates over a 2 day period, ideally on the same vessel/same company.

This would generally be ‘own boat’ training as for most candidates that is what they would sit the exam on.

This course is not mandatory nor do we certificate, it simply aims to improve on key areas for the examination.

Additional Courses Required

First aid:  This is a module of the full STCW 95 Basic Safety Training and is a requirement for all Boatmasters. It is a 1 day course. Certification is internationally recognised.

Personal Survival Techniques
