Method of Delivery

QMTS understands that for some students  distance learning is not an option and they need to complete their studies in a classroom supported by a trainer. For these students QMTS provides the supportive learning environment of our face to face program.

The units of the MAR30818 Certificate III in Maritime Operations (Marine Engine Driver Grade 2 Near Coastal) are delivered  in a 16 day face to face  program. Students have 12 months (if required) to complete all theory and practical components of their program.

The delivery of the qualification will be in a face to face classroom environment and includes:

  • Face to face theory training and workshops
  • Comprehensive practical training
  • An AMSA Task Book completed in a real workplace under the supervision of a suitably qualified person and authenticated by QMTS  may be required before a qualification can be issued.
  • Complete Assessment for the qualification is delivered through –
    • Assignments (completed each evening after training at home)
    • Assessments (quizzes completed at the end of each week during assessment and study time)
    • Practical Tasks (assessed through-out the program)
