Short Course Criteria - covering STCW 95

The MNTB, in conjunction with the MCA has developed the required STCW ‘short course criteria’ specification documents. These are required for approval of training under the IMO Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) as amended 95, and those required by the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code 2003 Edition. In addition, course criteria have been developed for non-mandatory courses that meet specific industry needs.

The criteria are contained in a series of booklets, available below.  The new booklets which cover the STCW 2010 Manila amendments are currently being worked on and will be placed on the following webpage as they become available. The booklets will be provided on payment of the required fee.

Industry individuals and organisations that have been involved in working on the new documents with the MNTB will have been sent complimentary copies.  If you have not received your booklet(s) once they appear on the new webpage, please contact Donna Stevens at 

Approval to deliver ‘short course’ training must be sought from the MCA.
