According to 2013 VGP, all owner/operators of vessels that operate in US waters must ensure that the master, operator, person in charge, and crew members who actively take part in the management of incidental discharges are adequately trained in implementing the terms of this permit.

 

For that purpose TQC has developed an interactive Computer Based Training course for the new Vessel General Permit 2013 that will satisfy EPA’s requirement.

 

The VGP 2013 CBT is a very effective solution that shall train and familiarize both sea going and shore based staff for the new Permit that enters into force December 19th 2013. The VGP 2013 CBT covers not only the training requirements but also requirements regarding the training verification, evaluation and certification.

 

Crew Members that interact with Vessel General Permit requirements will have the ability to be trained in the office, manning agent and/or on board the vessel. Seafarers will be trained to understand the environmental requirements and how they shall implement those on-board the vessel.

 

Furthermore under the CBT VGP 2013 seafarers will be evaluated by answering randomly generated questions out of a pull of questions that the VGP 2013 CBT includes and shall receive a respective scoring per seafarer on their knowledge on the VGP 2013 requirements. A relevant certification process is followed if the seafarer has successfully completes the test.

 

With the VGP CBT, ship management companies can effectively train and prepare the sea-going and shore-based personnel for the VGP 2013 requirements and provide verification and certification evidence.
