MODEL COURSES

These teaching aids are flexible in application: maritime institutes and their teaching staff can use them in organizing and introducing new courses or in enhancing, updating or supplementing existing training material.

The programme of model training courses developed out of suggestions from a number of IMO Member Governments, following the adoption of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978.

Assisted by contributions from various Governments, IMO has designed the series of courses to help implement this Convention and, further, to facilitate access to the knowledge and skills demanded by increasingly sophisticated maritime technology.

The model courses each include a course framework (detailing the scope, objective, entry standards, and other information about the course), a course outline (timetable), a detailed teaching syllabus (including the learning objectives and competences that should have been achieved when the course has been completed by students) and guidance notes for the instructor. Many courses include background information for students, in a compendium.

OPERATIONAL USE OF INTEGRATED BRIDGE SYSTEMS INCLUDING INTEGRATED NAVIGATION SYSTEMS
(Model course 1.32) (2005 Edition)

The safe and efficient use at sea of integrated bridge systems (IBS) and integrated navigation systems (INS) requires a level of knowledge beyond that normally given in the training of an officer in charge of a navigational watch. It is not just a matter of learning to use new controls, display techniques or how to switch on and off automatic functions. More importantly, it is learning the decision-making processes that must be applied in order to gain the full benefits of the integration in a safe manner and avoid the new problems that automatic controls and integrated systems can sometimes provoke.

This model course has been designed recognizing that integrated bridge systems and integrated navigation systems are a voluntary installation on vessels, and that they differ significantly in their configuration and operation from vessel to vessel. They can also interconnect to other bridge equipment and systems which may be compulsorily fitted to vessels as part of SOLAS or other requirements.

SAFETY OF FISHING OPERATIONS (Support level)
(Model course 1.33) (2005 Edition)

The standards of competence that have to be met by fishermen are defined in the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Fishing Vessel Personnel, 1995 (STCW-F). This specific model course was developed on the requirements laid out in STCW-F.

The model course aims to provide the training for candidates to undertake fishing operations on board ship, in accordance with chapter III, regulation 1.6, and attachment 2, resolution 4, annex 2.2 of STCW-F.

This syllabus covers the requirements of the STCW-F and IMO/FAO/ILO Document for Guidance on Training and Certification of Fishing Vessel Personnel, chapter 6.24 and 6.29. On meeting the minimum standard of competence in fishing operations, a trainee will be competent to understand the fishing methods and associated fishing gear and to safely engage in fishing operations under the supervision of an experienced deckhand.

The course is open to all fishing vessel personnel who are to serve on board sea-going fishing vessels. There are no particular educational entry requirements.

AUTOMATIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEMS (AIS)
(Model course 1.34) (2006 Edition)

Courses based on this model course may be standalone and as such will be useful for updating existing watchkeeping staff. For seafarers who are training to become an Officer of the Watch (OOW) it is good practice to ensure an appropriate level of integration between this model course and Model Course 1.07 (Radar navigation, radar plotting and use of ARPA) and Model Course 7.03 (Officer in charge of a navigational watch).

Training colleges undertaking such a course will need a simple AIS simulator and a radar target tracker (ARPA) simulator with AIS display capabilities. System requirements are discussed under ‘Teaching facilities and equipment’ in part A of this model course. A detailed discussion on simulator exercises is given in the final section of part D.

There are two sections in the model course for Maritime English: core section 1 and core section 2, each of which contains a separate syllabus. This system allows trainees to enter the course at a point which suits their level of knowledge of English.

It is recommended that instructors carry out a pre-course appraisal in order to assess the existing language level of each trainee. The syllabus in core section 1 is designed for trainees who have an elementary or lower intermediate level of English, while the syllabus in core section 2 is designed for trainees who have a lower intermediate or intermediate level of English. The definitions of these language levels and the basic entry requirements for the trainee target groups are given in part A of both sections of the course.

Core section 1 is intended to prepare trainees for entry to core section 2. However, it is possible for trainees to enter directly to core section 2 without following core section 1, provided that they can satisfy the entry requirements.

TRAIN THE SIMULATOR TRAINER AND ASSESSOR
(Model course 6.10) (2012 Edition)

The course includes technical aspects of teaching that have a direct relation with the maritime simulator world. Without delving into the details at this stage, it is however emphasized that the simulator pedagogy, as well as psychology of learning forms an important element of the course.

The topics that have been covered in this modular course have been chosen in such a way as to provide a valuable introduction for those who have little experience in teaching and also as a very useful refresher for experienced instructors. In addition, those whose teaching experience has been limited to lecturing will gain considerable exposure, as they will explore the world of maritime simulation along with a variety of teaching techniques.

The course deals with the relevance of simulator in maritime training and the simulator pedagogy associated with the use of training on a maritime simulator. The basic aspects of the learning process, purpose of training, setting of training objectives and basic principles of course design and the psychology of learning has also been touched upon, however it does not form the main thrust of the course. It is assumed that course participants would have received formal training in these aspects prior to completing this programme.

The course has a large practical component in which the participants implement the theoretical guidelines by planning, creating, executing and evaluating their own simulation exercises. The experimental nature of the course being conducted largely using simulators provides the participants the opportunity to hone the necessary skills required to be an effective simulator instructor.

A CD is included with the publication which contains a video (demo 1) and program simulator (demo 2).
