STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 2 Topics Overview of the Final Rule Grandfathering and Transition Summary for Existing Mariners Training Issues Relative to AMO/STAR STCW Gap Closing Plan and Training Summary Renewal Requirements after 1/1/2017 New Upgrade Training Requirements Other Significant Provisions
STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 3 USCG CFR FR 12/24/13-Overview 217 CFR Pages published 12/24/13 in Federal Register Effective date of the Final Rule-March 24, 2014 Other than security (1/1/14) and tankerman (3/24/14), Jan 1, 2017 is next compliance date for existing mariners Appears to be a fair and balanced final rule (could have been worse!) CFR’s only provide the outline for compliance 26 USCG NVIC’s provide the detailed guidance for compliance and enforcement of CFR’s. HOW TO COMPLY…
STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 4 Subpart C (g)- NVIC Grandfathering & Transition Summary -Existing mariners as of 3/24/14 If training or approved sea service started on or after 3/24/14 or applying after 1/1/2017. MUST adhere to the new rules. Anyone with an STCW issued before 3/24/14 only needs to complete GAP Closing requirements prior to 1/1/17. Anyone who applies for a credential based on approved or accepted training or approved seagoing service that was completed before March 24, 2014, can qualify based upon existing regulations. This provision allows renewal and upgrade based on regs prior to final rule Limitation of expiration 12/31/16 will be issued Additional Gap Closing requirements must be completed and submitted to remove limitation Anyone with an Operational-level STCW (Deck/Eng) issued prior to March 24, 2014 who upgrades to an STCW management-level endorsement will not be required to redo any operational assessments. Coast Guard will continue to issue STCW endorsements meeting the requirements of existing regs before March 24, 2014, for seafarers with service that began before March 24, 2014, until January 1, 2017.

STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 6 Overview of Training issues relative to AMO/STAR Security Training required by 1/1/2014- Membership awareness/compliance issues prior to effective date caused issues for STAR (Can’t happen with gap closing!) Tankerman regulations (new entrants) effective 3/24/14 Anyone with an existing USCG Tankerman Endorsement is grandfathered in under the new regs Existing Mariners can renew credentials based upon current regs (1 year of sea time only) until 12/31/16 All other STCW training requirements (Gap Closing)-Must be in full compliance on or after 1/1/2017 STAR as the primary training provider to the men and women of AMO is impacted by this rule making more than any other training organization Delay in Final Rule and the publishing of the NVIC’s has reduced time for compliance creating considerable hardship
STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 7 Overview of Training issues relative to AMO/STAR Priorities for STAR STCW Implementation Plan GAP Closing Requirements- Training all STCW Officers must complete by 1/1/2017 Renewal Requirements- Training to renew a credential or endorsement on or after 1/1/2017 Upgrade Requirements- Training to upgrade from operational to management credential on or after 1/1/2017 (Note: while upgrade after 1/1/2017 is not specifically addressed here in, there is guidance on transitioning and for those upgrading and being assessed before 1/1/2017 in this presentation.)
STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 8 Overview of Training issues relative to AMO/STAR STAR/AMO STCW GAP Closing Plan Understanding Requirements and Compliance Dates Planning and Scheduling Gap Training Note: STARCenter has released all 2014 and 2015 gap closing course schedules. Completing Required Gap Closing Training Credential Compliance-remove limitations Submitting training to USCG to remove expiration limitation prior to 1/1/2017 Receive new sticker from USCG for MMC with new expiration out to the full 5 year validity of the credential All involved have specific responsibilities in the structured process Don’t wait until 2016!
STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 9 GAP Closing Summary- Training all existing mariners must complete by 1/1/2017 Management level Deck-(Master/Chief Mate) STCW reg. II/2 (1)Leadership and Managerial skills (2)ECDIS, if serving on a vessel with ECDIS Management level Eng-(Chief/1 st AE) STCW reg. III/2 (1)ERM if not completed at the operational level (2)Leadership and Managerial skills (3)Management of Electrical and Electronic Control equipment OICNW (3/M & 2/M) STCW reg.

STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 12 New Upgrade Requirements Transition Existing mariners can continue to use previous regulations and transitioning provisions to upgrade to the Management Level until 12/31/16 Mariners upgrading in this way must complete the mgt level gap closing requirements by 1/1/2017 STAR is currently evaluating new NVIC’s to determine future upgrade program requirements for those who started sea service and training after 3/24/14 or who will be upgrading after 12/31/16 Deck or Engine upgrades Between now and 12/31/16 you can upgrade based upon previous requirements but must meet the additional gap closing requirements by 12/31/16 Assessments (NVIC provides details) If required by previous regs (in effect as of 3/24/14) they must be submitted For areas where no assessments were published prior to 3/24/14, the new assessments will be required starting 6 months after guidance and model assessments for the particular endorsement are published
STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 13 New Upgrade Requirements Transition USCG Qualified Assessor Program A Qualified Assessor (QA) is a person that the Coast Guard deems qualified to evaluate whether an applicant has demonstrated the necessary level of competence in the task for which the assessment is being made. A QA must be approved by the Coast Guard either individually or as part of a Coast Guard approved or accepted course or training program. As noted in NVIC (Grandfathering and Transitional Provisions for Merchant Mariner Credentials, Enclosure (2)), the Coast Guard will accept STCW assessments that have been performed and signed by an assessor who has not been Coast Guard approved until December 31, 2016, provided that the assessor meets the professional requirements in 46 CFR (a)(3) to assess competence for the specific endorsement.
STAR Center Simulation Training Assessment & Research 14 Other Significant Provisions Tankerman New STCW provisions (46 Part 13 Subpart F) Renewal of tankerman endorsements changed (46 CFR ) Reissuance of expired Tankerman Endorsements defined (46 CFR ) ATB Sea Service-Strictly defined in CFR including sea time (46 CFR (d)) Great Lakes and ROS sea time may be allowed towards STCW renewal/refresher/revalidation (NVIC enclosure 1) STCW Work Rest Provisions (Policy ltr 12-05)(Policy ltr 12-05) 2 Year Medical Certificates (NVIC 01-02) NMC WebsiteNMC Website
