Revised route proposed for BML, Tidal Inland Waterways

Revised route proposed for BML, Tidal Inland Waterways

At the MSA BML working group meeting this week, it was decided to proceed with the new proposed 3-stage Maritime Skills Qualification (MSQ) approach for obtaining the revised Certificate in Maritime Studies: Boatmaster, Tidal Inland Waterways.

Whilst candidates can still complete the whole Boatmaster licence as one larger unit, they may, if they so wish, also complete it via the following route:

  1. Level 2 Award in Maritime Studies :                Watch Rating
  2. Level 2 Certificate in Maritime Studies:           Seamanship  (‘EDH’)
  3. Level 2 Certificate in Maritime Studies:           Boatmaster, Tidal Inland Waterways

The recently proposed Level 3 Diploma in Maritime Studies: Boatmaster Inland Waterways, aiming to give wider background knowledge to candidates, did not receive sufficient support from the industry and has therefore not been taken forward at this time.
