Study Mode On Campus.

This qualification is aligned to the educational requirement for Certification as Marine Engine Driver (Motor) Grade 1 as described in Part D of the National Standards for Commercial Vessels (NSCV). The Marine Engine Driver (Motor) Grade 1 Certificate of Competency (CoC) is issued by the appropriate maritime regulatory authority in each state and territory.

A Marine Engine Driver (Motor) Grade 1 Certificate allows a holder to take charge of the machinery on vessels less than:

  • 525kw (35QN) propulsion power engaged in operations in any area; or750kw (50QN) propulsion power engaged in operations up to Australian Coastal - Middle Water Limits (600nm), or
  • 1500kw propulsion power engaged in operations up to Inshore limits (15nm).

This certificate also allows the holder to be second-in-charge of machinery on vessels less than:

  • 525kw (35QN) propulsion power engaged in Australian Coastal - Middle Water Limits (600nm)
  • 750kw (50QN) propulsion power engaged in operations up to Australian Coastal - Middle Water Limits (600nm)
  • 1500kw propulsion power engaged in operations up to Offshore Limits (600nm); or
  • 1500kw propulsion power

 

Study in specialist facilities

Situated in the port city of Fremantle, SM TAFE’s Fremantle campus includes some of the most comprehensive facilities for maritime training in the country, with advanced training equipment and highly experienced and qualified lecturing staff. The SM TAFE maritime training integrates simulator technology, a fleet of three vessels, biological and computing laboratories, along with engineering, seamanship and aquaculture workshops.

You can learn real-world skills in the ship, bridge and engineering simulator training suite and become job-ready for your role. The technology used features the most advanced mathematical modelling and shipping databases in the world and the hardware replicates the current equipment installed on seagoing ships.
