Exemption 38

3 days commencing. Cost $990

Recently the national regulator AMSA has streamlined a number of marine qualifications for ease of compliance. Exemption 38 (low complexity duties) is one of those qualifications supported and recognised by AMSA and state regulators that can fulfil a number of those areas relating to Risk Management and SMS responsibilities for new vessels.

Under AMSA’s definition of Exemption 38, vessel operators with low complexity duties may be exempt from holding a Certificate of Competency if you:

Operate during daylight hours only.

    With passengers only operate:
  1. A vessel <12mtrs long with propulsion for an inboard engine  <100kW or outboard engine <250kW.
  2. Within a marina or inland waters.
  3. Within 1 nm. From a parent vessel.
    Without carrying passengers only operate:
  1. A vessel <12mtrs long with propulsion for an inboard engine  <100kW or outboard engine <250kW.
  2. Within a marina or inland waters.
  3. Within 1 nm. From a parent vessel.
  4. In any waters within 1 nm from each point of departure and within 1 nm from the coast.
  5. In any waters of an aquaculture lease, and any approved vessels used for the daily transit to and from the aquaculture lease for operation.
  6. In any waters within 250 meters of a structure fixed to the shore.
  7. In sheltered waters within 2 nautical miles From the coast.

In order to qualify for the exemption, you will need to undertake training with an AMSA approved course provider and complete a Final Practical Assessment Record with an approved trainer assessor.
