Final Assessment (AMPA) & Application for Certificate of Competency (CoC)

From 1 May 2018, Sea School International will conduct the new AMSA Mandated Practical Assessment (AMPA) for domestic maritime certificates of competency. If you've already got your maritime qualification, call us to book in your "Final Assessment". If you're a new student, your AMPA will be incorporated into your coming course structure.

When you're ready to apply for a Certificate of Competency, you have the option of choosing Sea School to submit your application on your behalf or alternatively, submit it independently. If you choose to submit with Sea School, we'll help you to compile your documentation and ensure it meets all the standards before submitting it to AMSA on your behalf.

How to obtain your Certificate of Competency (maritime industry licence):

There are two ways to obtain your Certificate of Competency depending on your status:

1. You’ve already completed a maritime qualification

Final Assessment

  • successfully completed a maritime qualification (within the last 5 years)
  • compiled the required documentation, including evidence of sea service
  • studied in preparation for your AMSA Mandated Practical Assessment (AMPA)

The AMPA will be conducted on board a vessel and include a practical test for coxswains, masters and marine engine driver certificates. You’ll be asked to respond to questions as part of the assessment process.

Your assessment may take three to four hours and you must book an appointment.
