Review of AMC's National Centre for Ports and Shipping Deck Officers Program

Dear Members,

We have been recently invited to contribute to the review of the courses in the Deck Officers program of the Australian Maritime College's National Centre for Ports and Shipping (NCPS).

The reviews will be conducted in accordance with the AMC's Cyclical Course Reviews arrangements and will involve a review panel to assess the following courses:

• Deck Officers Program Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas of Applied Science (Nautical Science, Chief Mate/Master, Deck Watchkeeper and Mate/Master<500 GT).

We would like to hear from members who have recently attended the college. In addition to the terms of reference we would also like to know what components of the course, that you feel could be more than adequately completed online, so as to reduce the campus time [and cost of courses].

We are also concerned that  AMC currently enrols all students with or without a seatime sponsor; we would be interested to hear your views on this issue and your opinion of the quality of student services offered by AMC.

Please forward your responses to Jan Thompson on jan@amou.com.au or 0417 050 816.
