Seagull Releases Revised ISF Electronic Training Record Books

Press Release
Thursday, March 21, 2013

Seagull released revised versions of the four International Shipping Federation (ISF) Training Record Books.

 

Seagull and the ISF signed a landmark agreement last November allowing Seagull to utilise electronic versions of the training record books in conjunction with its Competence Manager software.



The revised training record books take full account of new competence requirements of the STCW 2010 Manila amendments, which came into force on January 1 2012, requiring shipping operators to maintain documentary evidence of structured onboard training for trainees seeking certification as Able Seafarer Deck (formerly Able Seaman) and Able Seafarer Engine (formerly Motorman) in addition to trainees seeking to qualify as ship’s officers (Cadets).



“Use by Seagull AS of the material in electronic format is approved by the ISF (and its publisher Maritime International Secretariat Services Limited) for subletting to Seagull’s customers on an individual ‘per ship’ basis, regardless of the number of officers using the material on such ship from time to time,” says a spokesman for the ISF.



Individual training record books are held in electronic format on each customer’s own central database and are accessed via the Seagull Competence Manager software for easy use by the seafarer, training officer, assessor and company management. On completion of the training tasks, the assessor or master will assess and verify the competences achieved.



These records will follow officers from ship to ship within the company and can be monitored by the company training officer. Hard copy versions of the training record book can be made available if the seafarer changes company and a guide to completion of the record books is made available by the system.



Completion of the ISF Training Record Books provides sufficient documentary evidence that a trainee has completed a properly structured onboard training program and demonstrated competence in the skills required by the amended convention. However, administrations may determine training, assessment or have certification requirements in addition to the tasks and competences contained in the ISF Training Record Books.
