EXPLANATION OF FLOW CHART FOR COURSE OFFERED AT PMTC AND FUTURE PROSPECTS FOR COURSES TO BE OFFERED

The flow chart shows the career path that a seafarer follows starting from initial training prior to going to sea and the various certificates and sea service that need to be completed prior to reaching the officer rank suited for most domestic vessels manning scale.

Prior to new trainee’s working on board vessels, all those intending to become seafarers need to attend a two weeks basic sea safety training course (Basic SOLAS).

This basic sea safety course applies to General Purpose Ratings, New Cooks, New Stewards and others taking up careers on board vessels.

After the two weeks of basic Sea Safety Training course, the new trainees can choose their respective career paths.

For those choosing to become seafarers, they need to complete the general purpose rating course which consists of four weeks or nautical studies and four weeks of marine engineering studies.

When the total of ten weeks of training is completed, the new trainees graduate with;

  • Basic SOLAS Certificate and

  • General Purpose Rating certificate (This certificate consists of both Deck and Engine knowledge and competencies).

Certificates listed above are approved by the National Maritime Safety Authority (NMSA) and qualifies the new trainee’s to work on any domestic vessels.

Once a general purpose Rating gets employed on board, his or her sea time starts to prepare them for their next level of training and certification. The Trainee can choose the deck career path that will raise them up to becoming a ship’s deck officer and finally becoming the master of a vessel or they can choose the engineroom career path that will raise them up the ranks to becoming engineer officer and finally becoming a chief engineer of a ship.

To reach the highest level of deck or engineer officer’s certificate of competency for the domestic shipping industry, the respective sea time requirements as shown in the flow chart has to be followed for the respective career paths. The required sea time as shown in the flow charts and the respective training and certificates of competency, need to be successfully completed in the process for climbing up the ranks in the respective departments on board the vessel to reach class four level. Currently class four level is PMTC’s ambition to train up to and it is the highest level of certificate governed by PNG’s domestic shipping Legislation.

After successfully completing class four level of certificates of competency, the next level of courses, class three, two and one, are internationally recognised certificates and the training courses, training facilities and certificates are outside of PMTC’s current scope.
