AMSA Revalidation and Continued Competence Refresher
With the implementation of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) Marine Order Part 70-73, AMSA issued certificates, including those issued in perpetuity, if not revalidated, will expire on 1 January 2017.
All certificate holders will be required to satisfy continued competence requirements every five (5) years, to maintain the validity of their certificate.
In addition, from 1 January 2017, all AMSA issued certificate holders are required to hold a Security Awareness endorsement.
While AMCS will make every attempt to provide guidance on the training requirements of STCW 78, as amended, AMSA is responsible for the final determination that these requirements have been met, and we strongly recommend you check the requirements for the revalidation/renewal of your qualification with AMSA before proceeding.
AMCS offer the widest range of maritime training Australia, and has a team of experienced administrators who are able to assist with all maritime training related enquiries. Click here to contact the team.
