Sea-Going Qualifications

To obtain qualifications for most sea-going positions you need to have sea time under the command of a qualified master or skipper.

Check out NZ Maritime Authority SeaGoing Qualifications and the Maritime Rule 32 - Ship's Personnel Qualifications.

These links give access to details of seagoing positions and the qualifications required to attain them.

 

Re-employment

Short courses for revalidation of sea-going licenses are available through The New Zealand Maritime School, Manukau Institute of Technology.
