This programme contributes to graduates obtaining their Maritime New Zealand licence: Mate Fishing Vessel – Limited
The Mate Fishing Vessel Limited Strand is suitable for people who are working as a deckhand on a fishing vessel, who want to progress to managing fishing operations on a fishing vessel operating within the coastal and offshore limits (currently up to 200 nautical miles off the NZ coast).
If you already hold the Maritime New Zealand Advanced Deckhand – Fishing licence and/or have been working as a deckhand on a fishing vessel then this programme is for you. If you do not hold the MNZ Advanced Deckhand – Fishing licence, then you will need to complete a Training Record Book whilst you are at sea, prior to attending the programme.
These strands also include all the short courses you require to gain your licence, such as all the STCW basic and advanced short courses, and Radio certificates. If you already hold any of these short courses, you do not need to do them again – we will credit them towards your programme.
