Competency/ Module: Navigational Arithmetic and Science Competency: Plan and conduct a passage and decide place
Data, understanding and proficiency Suggestion of working group concerning the end result and goal. Rationale Motion required
End result 1: Describe and apply navigational phrases and calculate programs and distances. Modernise All objects on this part are important to grasp how ECDIS plots course strains and supply a better understanding of digital navigation to ensure that a candidate to watch the system for errors. For more practical studying, the beneath sub-outcomes needs to be adopted by sensible utility in fact plotting on an ECDIS virtually present how these handbook calculations are performed by the software program and have the ability to recognise potential errors.
1.1 Navigational phrases Maintain Related None
1.2 Aircraft trigonometry Maintain Related None
1.3 Spherical trigonometry Maintain Related None
1.4 Sailings on the earth’s floor: (parallel, airplane, Mercator and nice circle) Modernise See rationale for most important end result 1. See motion for most important end result 1.
1.5 Load strains and limiting latitudes Modernise See rationale for most important end result 1. See motion for most important end result 1.
1.6 Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) calculations Modernise See rationale for most important end result 1. See motion for most important end result 1.
End result 2: Describe the essential concept of the ship’s magnetic compass and its related errors and upkeep. Maintain Related See sub-outcome actions.
2.1 Earth’s magnetic subject Maintain Legitimate, preserve as that is the working precept for magnetic compass Maintain the content material at a primary stage for OOW. Important in case of potential digital tools failure None
2.2 Ship’s magnetic subject Maintain That is solely lined to a primary stage and is required to distinguish between deviation and variation. All compass changes are performed by compass adjusters; nonetheless, junior officers are often assigned to help so it’s vital that they perceive what the adjustors are doing. None
2.3 Compass errors and their causes Maintain Related None
2.4 Ship’s magnetic compass and upkeep Modernise We should contextualise this subject to assist candidates perceive the onboard relevance and the way it could affect their work. Embody practicalities of magnetic compass upkeep together with the paperwork that needs to be issued to the ship following adjustment/ship swing in order that junior officers know what needs to be current when making ready for audits and so forth.
End result 3: Describe the operation of the marine gyrocompass and its related errors. Maintain Related See sub-outcome actions.
3.1 Free gyroscope Maintain Related None
3.2 Marine gyrocompass Maintain Related None
3.3 Gyrocompass errors Modernise We should contextualise this end result to not solely perceive learn how to calculate gyro errors but in addition learn how to recognise and reply to those errors. Understanding of gyros vital but in addition must be coupled with sensible use of this tools. Additionally, junior officers want to grasp that inputs from completely different gyros may be switched in case of error/failure, and they need to know the way to do that on every new vessel they’re on. Embody the affect of gyrocompass errors on fashionable built-in bridges, such because the affect on different tools. Introduce the sensible components of gyrocompass errors in a simulator, with the candidate recognising a gyro errors/failure and demonstrating how to reply to it.
Proposal submitted by: Every other outcomes for this competency, above and past STCW which might be wanted due to make use of of contemporary expertise and affect of future fuels onboard:
Goal Purpose Why Motion required
Cadet Coaching & Modernisation Working Group Embody different varieties of compasses – fibreoptic compass, GPS compass (not SOLAS permitted) A number of several types of compasses can be encountered at sea. Embody different compass sorts in End result 3 of this module.
Cadet Coaching & Modernisation Working Group Use of calculation software program to find out compass error (Azimuth and amplitude calculations) Calculation software program is prevalent on board fashionable vessels, as such an understanding of it needs to be lined inside this module. Use calculation software program discovered on board as a instructing help.
Cadet Coaching & Modernisation Working Group Embody Human Aspect Elements all through the syllabus To offer seafarers with a contextualised understanding of the Human Aspect within the maritime trade, displaying how they’ll put concept into follow within the work they perform at sea. Increase consciousness all through the Cadet’s coaching of the areas wherein human aspect components will have an effect. Suggestions on the place this may be included have been famous all through your entire syllabus. Not each template has Human Aspect Issue suggestions however please do add any you’re feeling could have been missed.
Cadet Coaching & Modernisation Working Group Embody Information Science abilities all through the syllabus Information Science Expertise (Comprehension, Evaluation, Presentation, and so forth…) are already required inside a lot of the syllabus. An additional, particular deal with these abilities must be taught the place related. A selected subject will must be launched to enhance Cadets’ Information Science abilities. Sensible utility of knowledge science abilities needs to be highlighted all through the syllabus. Not each template has Information Science suggestions however please do add any you’re feeling could have been missed.
