Confused about the HV STCW Course. Well learn about it here like who need to do HV course, duration of the course and fees structure as well. Colleges offering high voltage course are also discussed in this post. Let’s learn about this newly added HV voltage course for the seafarers as per the STCW manila amendments.

What is this STCW High Voltage Course

Recently when STCW amendments of manila came, there is a new regulation for the officers and electrical officer, who are working on board vessels having power production above 1000 V. Committee feels that officers who are working on these types of ships or who will, needs to have some standard training regarding the high voltage requirements and also the safety issues concerned with it. That being said, now candidates have to hold High Voltage course certificate by the end of 2016, to be able to work on ship having 1000 Volts  generating installations.

High Voltage Course Types

There are two types of high voltage course as per the new amendments and they are:
For Whom
STCW Requirements
High Voltage Training Operational Level
For Junior
Engineer Officers Like 4th Engineer, 3rd Engineers
2010 Table A-III/1
High Voltage (Management Level)
For senior
officers like chief engineer
2010 Tables A-III/2 and A-III/6
So these are types of courses under these new amendments.

Is High Voltage Course Mandatory

No and Yes also. Well if you never want to work on ships above 1000V power from generators installations, then yes, you don’t need to do this. But if you want to, then surely you have to do it.

    – The criteria for the hours of training and training courses are specified?

    2. The date of entry into force of the agreement on 1 January 2017. So who does not complete a high-voltage education this date will not be on board the ship high voltage?

    3. There is a vessel referred to as a high voltage generator capacity specified above 1000V, 440V does so with a boost in the production of vessels including high voltage?
