Plan and navigate a passage for a vessel up to 12 metres

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria


Plan passage


Appropriate charts and publications are accessed and checked for currency


Destination is identified, and course and waypoints are plotted


Estimated time of arrival (ETA) at waypoints and final destination are calculated


Safe passage is plotted to comply with all navigational buoys, marks and beacons


Navigational hazards are identified to avoid dangers to vessel


Weather information is accessed to determine expected weather pattern for intended passage


Proposed course is modified, if necessary, to meet expected weather conditions


Fuel consumption for passage, including a reserve, is calculated


Conduct a pre-departure check


Propulsion equipment and alarms are tested for serviceability and vessel hull is checked for seaworthiness


Navigation equipment and alarms are checked to ensure they are in proper working condition and set for the passage


Navigation equipment is checked for errors and allowances are made in planning the passage


Fuel is checked to ensure there is adequate fuel on board for intended passage


Safety equipment is checked for compliance with legislation


Communications equipment is checked to ensure it is in proper working condition


Anchoring and mooring equipment is checked to ensure it is adequate and in good condition


Vessel and equipment are secured for sea


Conduct passage


Local authorities are advised of departure and passage plan


Vessel is steered and propulsion equipment is operated in a safe and controlled manner to complete pre-planned course


Pilotage techniques and navigational equipment are used to monitor vessel position and maintain vessel in safe waters at all times


Errors from navigational equipment are correctly applied to maintain planned passage


Navigational buoys, marks and beacons are identified and complied with


Situational awareness is maintained to avoid navigational hazards and to comply with regulations for prevention of collision at sea


Weather and sea conditions are monitored during passage and correct responses are made for changing conditions


Complete passage


Local authority is advised of completion of passage


Vessel is checked to ensure it is securely moored
