MAR Blue Water Phase 3

This project is part of the MAR Maritime Training Package Project.

Overview

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has commissioned the review of the MAR Maritime Training Package with the objective to incorporate the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s (AMSA) certification requirements and strengthen assessment requirements. This is Phase Three. Click here to view further information on Phase One and Phase Two.

The project will ensure seafarers will have met all certification requirements and prepare them for the final AMSA assessment, prior to AMSA issuing the seafarer with a Certificate of Competency or Proficiency.

In addition, to minimise the number of Training Package Releases, Phase Three will also include the following approved Cases for Change:
