Upskill to an able seafarer role

This Maritime Crewing (Level 4) programme caters for qualified deck and engine room crew wishing to advance to able seafarer roles.

You have the option to complete this programme with one of two strands: Deck Crew or Engineering (We are also accredited to offer the Electrotechnical Rating strand, however no set intakes are available at this time. Please contact our IMINZ team if you have a particular interest in this strand.)


As a graduate of this qualification you will carry out crewing duties within your strand speciality area at a support level to watchkeepers, masters or engineers.

Completion of this qualification is a prerequisite to applying for a
  • Maritime New Zealand STCW Able Seafarer Deck licence, or
  • Maritime New Zealand STCW Able Seafarer Engine licence.

Either of these licences will allow you to work independently and with only broad guidance as crew on vessels operating in unlimited waters.
