Course Details

The GMDSS was developed by the International Maritime Organization and put in force on February 1, 1992 under the SOLAS Convention amendments. The GMDSS is intended to provide an efficient SAR rescue system and also provide for Urgency, Safety, and Routine communications and dissemination of Maritime Safety Information. The material presented in this course covers the scope of the examination for the Restricted Operator’s Certificate – Maritime Commercial (ROC-MC) for the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS). The Restricted Operator’s Certificate – Maritime Commercial (ROC-MC) is intended for the mariners, serving on compulsorily-fitted commercial ships within the North American A1 sea areas. It is compliant with the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended in 1995 (STCW 95 Regulation IV/2). The certificate is obtained by completing an abbreviated version of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Model Course consistent with the “Near Coastal Voyage” option (STCW 95 R1/3).
