This course is designed to satisfy the cargo familiarization training requirement set forth in Qualifications for Tankerman Assistant and for Persons in Charge of Transfer of Dangerous Liquids, 46 C.F.R. § 13.209 and to meet the requirements for specialized basic training of personnel serving on oil, chemical, and liquefied gas tankers as specified in the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, (STCW) and the 2010 amendments of STCW. In addition, this course reflects the most current regulatory requirements affecting the tanker industry as well as safe industry practice found in various fleet manuals, trade publications and manufacturers’ manuals. This course uses a combination of classroom lectures and practical demonstrations using laboratory equipment, such as the liquid cargo/ballast-handling simulator. Successful completion of this course is a prerequisite to assignment aboard an oil/chemical/liquefied gas tanker. At the conclusion of NAUT 220 Liquid Cargo Operations, Midshipmen will be eligible for the United States Coast Guard national endorsement on the Merchant Mariners Credential (MMC) as a Tankerman-Assist (DL), with no further training or service. Completion of this course along with the required sea time and onboard cargo transfer operations during the sea year will satisfy the requirements of the federal regulations leading to the United States Coast Guard national endorsements on the Merchant Mariners Credential (MMC) as a Tankerman, Person-in-Charge PIC (DL).
