Ship Electromechanical 2/Electrical Tradesman 2
This course offers relevant skills in understanding the principle of electrical equipment and maintenance of the ship. It covers the important principles and hands-on features governing the operation, maintenance, and repair of electrical equipment and common control systems found on board. Training instruction and activities are based on actual devices to take full advantage of the practical aspects of the work carried on board.
This is a modeled IMO course tailored for individuals in the security industry in PNG who choose to operate in a maritime industry environment. The course is originally designed for all seafarers without any designated security appointment. General awareness of maritime security threat and emergencies.
This training will provide the participants with the knowledge and skills required to safely operate propulsion plant (s) and auxiliary equipment on a vessel not exceeding 750 kW propulsion power. This training shall prepare the marine engineer to perform the duties of monitoring the mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, refrigeration plant, pumping systems, ventilations systems and control equipment, as well as being in charge of engine management systems, maintenance of the machinery in engine room and ship’s deck. Therefore the engineer officer needs to be practical, resourceful and have a real interest in mechanical, hydraulic, electrical systems and identify basic stability requirements on vessels as well as calculate fuel consumption and storage requirements on vessels. This training will provide participants with the engineering knowledge and skills required to safely operate machinery and maintain electrical equipment on board a vessel.
The Marine Diesel Engine fitter course is designed to prepare the engine service fitter to competently perform maintenance and repairs on high and medium speed marine diesel engines. The focus on the training is to provide the environment for trainee’s to enhance their skills and experience in a marine workshop environment.
This training covers magnetic compass adjustment in detail and enables participants to perform adjustments on ships magnetic compass to eliminate or reduce compass error due to ships induced magnetism (deviation). The course will impart on candidates the principles, best practices, competence and tools required in the process of calibrating magnetic compass and taking into account the importance of conducting compass adjustments and repairs in a professional way in accordance with the rules and standards for testing and certification of magnetic compasses. This training will imbed the must know knowledge and understanding to ensure that magnetic compasses are maintained in good working order, adjusted and for evidence, a table of residual deviations is made available to the ship owner and or master. Compass adjusters ensure that ships have onboard working compass in good condition to avoid major navigational disasters. Even with modern design of vessels using electronic navigation equipment like the gyro compass, unexpected emergencies, like major power failures or electronic power malfunctions can threaten a vessel’s safe passage, thus requiring a fall back to the old magnetic compass as a backup even for today’s sophisticated modern ships.
This is a general course offered for individuals in the security industry who require adaption to maritime environment. Basic seamanship, basic navigation skills and ship engineering knowledge are essential for the candidate to be successful. Basic skills of seamanship, swimming and general ship knowledge is important for candidates understanding and appreciation of a Maritime Security Officer.
