MARL005 Mapping and Delivery Guide
Demonstrate basic knowledge of marine control systems and automation
Issue Date: February 2019
||Unit of Competency||MARL005 - Demonstrate basic knowledge of marine control systems and automation|
|Learning Outcomes and Application||This unit involves the knowledge of marine automation and process control required by engineers to operate control systems on board a commercial vessel.This unit applies to people working in the maritime industry as a Marine Engineering Watchkeeper on commercial vessels greater than 750 kW or as an Engineer Class 3 Near Coastal.This unit has links to legislative and certification requirements.|
|Duration and Setting||X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.
Assessors must satisfy National Vocational Education and Training Regulator (NVR)/Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) assessor requirements.
Assessment must occur in workplace operational situations where it is appropriate to do so; where this is not appropriate, assessment must occur in simulated workplace operational situations that reflect workplace conditions.
Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.
Resources for assessment must include access to:
tools, equipment, machinery, materials and personal protective equipment currently used in industry
applicable documentation such as legislation, regulations, codes of practice, workplace procedures and operational manuals
range of relevant exercises, case studies and/or simulations.
