Maritime Studies Units and Qualifications, and National Occupational Standards

The MSA has developed a suite of MSQs, Maritime Studies Qualifications, supported by over 130 Units, which are the building blocks for qualifications. They’re all listed below, and in this downloadable document: MSQ Qualifications and Units

In many cases a Unit is shared between several qualifications, matching the reality that much of what people need to know is common to a number of sectors within the broader maritime sector.

Most Units are based on National Occupational Standards. See Section D at the foot of this page for a full set of current NOS.

And wherever relevant we have matched each Unit, qualification and apprenticeship to the syllabus published by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. Anyone passing those qualifications will have met the MCA’s requirements for the underpinning knowledge for certification, though they’ll obviously need to meet the other criteria too, particularly qualifying sea / service time.

This section contains four lists:

A: Maritime Studies Qualifications

B: MSQ Units on which they are based, in numerical order.
(Most have hyperlinks to the full Unit).

C: MSQ Units grouped alphabetically

D: National Occupational Standards

Latest changes:

  • Planned creation of two qualifications following the work of the Small Vessel Engineer Working Group (see MIN 524):
    • Diploma in Maritime Studies: Small Vessel Second Engineer (Level 2)
    • Diploma in Maritime Studies: Small Vessel Chief Engineer (Level 3)
  • Planned deletion of the following qualifications because there has been no take-up:
    • Level 2 Certificate in Maritime Studies: Watch/Tug Rating (engine room)
    • Level 3 Diploma In Maritime Studies: Officer of the Watch (yacht) less than 3,000 gross tonnage (Unlimited)
    • Level 2 Award In Maritime Studies: Marine Vessel Hospitality
    • Level 3 Award In Maritime Studies: Marine Vessel Hospitality Supervision
    • Level 2 Award In Maritime Studies: Use of Safety Equipment on Domestic Vessels
    • Level 2 Award In Maritime Studies: Competent Crew on Domestic Vessels
    • Level 2 Certificate In Maritime Studies: Boatmaster for Non-Tidal Inland Waterways
    • Level 2 Award In Nautical Studies
  • Correction for Pathway F: the list should show Unit 76 as mandatory, not Unit 77.
  • Addition of Units 102, 103, 133-136 – BML endorsements. Units 133-5 replace Unit 100 (in line with MCA changes), which will be withdrawn in due course.
  • Units 77 and 137 are in preparation (for the new Small Vessel Engineer Diploma). (77 was written some time ago, but never approved)
