Crew working on board High speed craft. Office manager involved in direct management of high speed craft.
Course consists of practical approach to following:
- Sections of relevant maritime regulations relevant to the navigation of a commercial high speed vessel, including the International Code of Safety for the Operation of High Speed Craft.
- International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea
- SOLAS requirements
- OH&S regulations related to the safe use of electronic navigational aids
- ISM Code safety management system Procedures related to the navigation of high speed vessels
- The different types of electronic navigational aids used on high speed craft, including their features, key applications and operational characteristics
- Procedures for the initialisation and operation of radar, ARPA and various other types of electronic navigational aids
- The limitations and potential errors associated with each type of electronic navigational aid when used for high speed navigation
- Manoeuvring and engine characteristics for high speed vessels, including stopping distances and turning circles in various operational situations
- Procedures for the use of data generated by radar, ARPA and various other types of electronic navigational aids to assist in the safe navigation of a high speed vessel, including the selection of the appropriate range for radar when operating at high speed
- Action and precautions required to avoid a potential collision situation when operating a high speed vessel based on the International Code of Safety for the Operation of High Speed Craft and the International Regulations for the Prevention of Collision at Sea
- Maritime communication techniques when operating a high speed vessel
- Problems in the navigation of a high speed vessel and appropriate courses of action and solutions
- Methods for the interpretation and analysis of navigational information during a high speed passage, including visual information and that produced by radar, ARPA and various other types of electronic navigational aids.This should include:
a) concept of area of concern
b) due allowance for the limitations and potential errors associated with each type of electronic navigational aid
c) the use of parallel index lines to determine cross track error
d) techniques for determining course made good and alteration of position
Type Rating Certificate
Under the HSC Code, masters and officers operating HSCs are required to hold the appropriate Type Rating Certificate (TRC). The TRC issued to individual officers is craft and route specific.
To qualify for a TRC, masters and deck officers are required to complete additional training in craft and route familiarisation, and have operational experience on board a particular craft. This requirement also includes having their requisite certificate of competencies.
Masters and deck officers are required to be proficient with the craft's manoeuvring characteristics, navigational and safety equipment. In the event of an incident, they must also be able to take charge of the situation, deploy the necessary safety equipment and evacuate all passengers and crew to safety.
Masters and deck officers are also required to be familiar with the route where the craft operates, as well as the aids to navigation along the route. As these crafts are travelling at high speeds, officers must navigate without the need to refer to charts or other publications. In order to qualify, officers are required to understudy at least 20 round trips during the day and similarly during the night.
