Don’t get caught out. The Manila Amendments are upon us.

Posted: March 4, 2016

Irish Seafarers and employers of Irish Seafarers, take note!!

 

The Manila Amendments are very clear, irrespective of the validity of your Certificate of Competency.

Our own legislation is very clear!

Marine Notice No. 02 of 2014 states:

Seafarers holding valid STCW certificates issued prior to 1st January 2012 will have to meet the new requirements in order for their certificates to be revalidated beyond 1st January 2017.

Certificates that have been presented for revalidation since 1st January 2012 have an expiry date of 31st December 2016.

Seafarers revalidating their Certificates of Competency (CoCs) will be required to submit additional evidence to ensure their CoC is valid for service after 31st December 2016.

 

In conforming to the provisions of STCW Convention Regulation 1/14, and section A-1/14, of the STCW Code, companies must ensure that seafarers assigned to any of their ships have received refresher/updating training as required by the convention.

If you or a member of your team is serving on board a ship and is qualified in any of the following, they must, as of the 1st of January 2017, have documentary evidence of either having completed the training course or updated their training within the last 5 years.

 

Updated Proficiency in Personal Survival Techniques (STCW Table A-VI/1-1)

Updated Proficiency in Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting (STCW Table A-VI/1-2)

Updated Proficiency in Advanced Fire Fighting (STCW Table A-VI/3)

Updated Proficiency in Fast Rescue Boats (STCW Table A-VI/2-2)

 

The law is very clear, do not put your career at risk, you cannot proceed to sea after January 1st 2017 without having complied with the Manila Amendments.

Book your training here at the NMCI. Courses are selling out quickly. All courses to June 2016 are now fully booked.

Save the Date – HOOW Conference 2015

Posted: May 27, 2015

Harnessing our ocean wealth

 

It’s that time of year again when we are all busy making summer holiday plans and getting back to a routine after the busy period. So when your looking at your calendar wondering when to go away on holidays you should have a look at what Cork has to offer this summer…..

A major celebration of Ireland’s ocean wealth will take place this summer in the real capital of Ireland, Cork, the rebel city. A two day event, 10th and 11th July, is planned for Ringaskiddy and Haulbowline in association with IMERC and with support from Beaufort Building, UCC, the National Maritime College of Ireland, the Naval Service and the Marine Institute.

The event is an initiative of Ireland’s Integrated Marine Plan – Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth. It will build on the first annual “Our Ocean Wealth Conference” which took place in Dublin Castle last July. The event was attended by about 500 delegates.  This year the organisers hope to attract a wider audience over the two day event which will include a conference, marine technology expo, investor events, workshops, a seafood festival, family fun, and competitions.

By broadening its scope to include a range of activities open to families as well as business and potential investors, the event aims to highlight the social, cultural and economic benefits of Ireland’s marine sector and provide a platform for public engagement with Ireland’s marine resource.

So, why not save the date? July 10th and 11th 2015…. It’s your chance to visit us here at NMCI Services and gain an insight into the maritime sector.

For further information regarding this spectacular event why not check out their website : http://www.ouroceanwealth.ie/
