|PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION|
On a warship, as an Officer-of-the-Day, a naval officer will be responsible for the safety and security management of the warship while alongside. This Qualification will equip learners to fulfil this function by giving them a holistic introduction to a warship's procedural, structural and mechanical components and how these various components function together to optimise the performance of the ship and its crew.
The learner will use the knowledge and skills to contribute to the defence of South African territorial waters and/or area of responsibility against possible naval threats, thus providing a safer and secure country for social and economic growth.
Recipients of this qualification will be able to:
This Qualification meets the needs of the Maritime Defence Sector by providing training standards against which junior naval officers can be trained. This Qualification meets the needs of society by providing competent naval officers who by managing the safety and security of a ship alongside, contribute to securing the national assets and thereby the sovereignty of the Republic of South Africa.
The majority of the learners for this qualification are likely to have entered service as candidate officers on officer training opportunities in the SA Navy or worked their way up through the ratings ranks of the SA Navy. This qualification is the first in the progressive development of officer skills for the SA Navy. This Qualification will allow learners access to the following learning pathway; the National Certificate: Bridge Watchkeeping, NQF Level 5, the National Certificate: Warship Operations, NQF Level 5, or the National Certificate: Submarine Operations, NQF Level 5, the National Certificate: Warship Command and Control, NQF Level 6 and the National Diploma: Joint and Multi-National Operations, NQF Level 6.
This Qualification has been purpose-built for the Sovereignty of the State sub-field, the Maritime Defence Sector and naval officers in their capacity as an Officer-of-the-Day. Further this Qualification contributes to an integrated National Qualifications Framework; provides for access, mobility and progression within the South African National Defence Force career path; enhances the quality of training within the SA Navy; allows for the redress of the past and contributes to the development of the learner as an officer within the South African National Defence Force.

|ASSOCIATED ASSESSMENT CRITERIA|
|Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 1:
1.1 An understanding is demonstrated of warship construction in order to promote effective and efficient response to shipboard emergencies and procedures.
1.2 An understanding is demonstrated of mechanical systems, key mechanical equipment and machinery in order to improve air movement and conditioning.
1.3 An understanding is demonstrated of the warships electrical system so as to ensure effective power generation, management and distribution.
1.4 An understanding is demonstrated of the capacity and limitations of the warship and warship systems in order to promote effective decision making and control of safety and damage limitation operations.
Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 2:
2.1 Safety and security procedures are applied on the warship alongside with minimum delay in routine and emergency situations.
2.2 Alarm systems are applied on the warship alongside so as to ensure prompt and appropriate responses.
2.3 Security measures are maintained on a warship alongside so as to ensure the safety of personnel, equipment and the vessel.
2.4 Routine on the warship is maintained so as to ensure the seamanlike appearance and hygiene standards of the warship are maintained.
Associated Assessment Criteria for Exit Level Outcome 3:
3.1 Appropriate emergency responses are promptly initiated according to warship emergency plans and SA Navy regulations and procedures.
3.2 Fire, flood and other damage is effectively managed to protect ship and crew.
3.3 Training evolutions are practiced and reviewed to promote confident and correct responses to emergencies.

Because assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid, and reliable and ensure that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever, an integrated assessment approach is incorporated into the Qualification. Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably linked. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the unit standards should be integrated.
Assessment of the communication, language, literacy and numeracy should be conducted in conjunction with other aspects and should use authentic and specific naval and maritime sector contexts wherever possible.
A variety of methods must be used in assessment and tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working. Where it is not possible to assess the learner in the workplace or on-the-job, simulations, case studies, role-plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.
The term 'Integrated Assessment' implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflective competencies.
Assessors and moderators should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Assessors should assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience.
Assessment should ensure that all Specific Outcomes, Essential Embedded Knowledge and Critical Cross-Field Outcomes are assessed. The assessment of the Critical Cross-Field Outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of Specific Outcomes and Essential Embedded Knowledge.
The Seafarer's Training, Certification and Watchkeeping Code. All navies and maritime organisations comply with the Seafarer's Training, Certification and Watchkeeping Codes. This leads to a substantial degree of uniformity in a highly regulated environment and this qualification was developed bearing in mind the Code.
The Seafarer's Training, Certification and Watchkeeping Code:
Seafarer's Training, Certification and Watchkeeping Code as adopted by the 1995 Conference of the International Maritime Organization and recognises the specific roles and responsibilities of a watchkeeper. It lays down duties and responsibilities and provides standards and criteria for the learning and assessment of watchkeepers. Signatories to the Convention include 71 countries, amongst them leading seafaring nations such as; Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Russian Federation, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
Areas of specified competence include:
The FETC: Harbour Watchkeeping deals with some of the requirements of the Seafarer's Training, Certification and Watchkeeping Code and therefore, due to its international acceptance, also compares favourably with a majority of foreign navies. Once the South African naval officer has completed the National Certificate: Bridge Watchkeeping, Level 5 would he/she have achieved all the competencies of the Seafarer's Training, Certification and Watchkeeping Code.
