3.301 March 2006 3 Standard for Certification Competence of Ships' Superintendents Background DNV SeaSkill has been set up with the express aim of using the principles of classification and certification to help improve and codify competence at all levels within the maritime industry. DET NORSKE VERITAS . for which the International Maritime Organisation has adopted the STCW Code. — As a guide to training providers.16 have been added to the MCQ column of Table 3-1. c) In item 7. — As a guide to those who are already working or wish to work in the position of superintendent. These standards can be used to provide appropriate training. DNV SeaSkill works in close cooperation with the shipping industry. recruit. This standard describes the competence required for ships’ superintendents. b) Omissions regarding competence requirement 3. DNV SeaSkill intends to offer the industry the necessary tools and expertise to evaluate the competence of individuals based on Standards for Certification of Competence.301 replaces the September 2005 version.No. Changes This version of Standard for Certification No. The changes are mainly of an editorial nature and are as follows: a) A clarification of the calculation of scores has been added to Table 2-1. train and develop superintendents. there is no global standard in place today to assess and certify them. who can develop courses according to the requirements of the standard. and to assess and certify individuals as being fit to carry out the functions as described in each standard. In this case. This is as opposed to on-board positions. All DNV SeaSkill standards are developed with the active partici- pation of the shipping industry. This standard can be applied in the following ways: — As a guide to the competence requirements which employers should place on the superintendents they employ. The result is that the shipping industry has no common set of standard of competence with which to evaluate.1 the validity of the certificate has been increased from 3 years to 5 years which is the normal validity of certificates in the maritime industry. developed by Committees of Experts consisting of leading members of the industry. — For the assessment and certification of superintendents. and provides an independent and transparent mechanism for certification. d) Minor clarifications in the Certificate Form in Appendix A.Standard for Certification . it has been claimed from around the world that the industry needs a high-quality standard of competence for ships' superintendents. Given the importance of superintendents to the shipping industry. This is done by DNV SeaSkill. The intention is to use this standard as the basis for evaluation and certification of individuals. It is necessary to independently test and verify the competence of individuals in relation to specific jobs or positions on-board as well as on-shore. Our standards are in fact. 3.
