 describe the competence in manoeuvring the ship at the

operational and management level; and
 differentiate the context and extent of responsibility
under the competence of manoeuvring the ship as per
Table A-II/1 and Table A-II/2 of the STCW Code.

Operational level Management level

• Safe operating limits of ship • All decisions concerning berthing
propulsion, steering and and anchoring are based on
power systems are nit proper assessment of the ship’s
manoeuvring and engine
exceeded in normal
characteristics and the forces to
manoeuvres be expected while berthed
• Adjustments made to the alonside or lying at anchor
ship’s course and speed to • While under way a full

effects of shallow and restricted
waters, ice, banks, tidal
conditions, passing ships and own
ship’s bow and stern waves so
that the ship can be safely

 The competence required by Table A-II/1 to operational
level in regard to ship maneuvering and handling function is
different compared to management level required by Table
A-II/2 where in management level required to execute
competence in ship handling in all conditions where
operational level does not.

 Column 2 on Table A-II/1 required KUP for operational level

a KNOWLEDGE in basic understanding in regards to ship
maneuvering and handling, while in column 2 on Table A-
II/2 required management level required KUP in

 In the KUP column we can say that in operational level 5

knowledge is what are indicated unlike in management level
there were 18 area with skills in ship handling.
 In the methods for demonstrating competence there were 4
requirement for operational while 3 for management. Therefore,
the demonstration for operational level were acquired in
cadetship experience while in management level were gained
from required experience as officer. The level of experience is
much higher than what is measured between the two.

 The level of responsibility between operational and

management level is very much different, especially when it
comes to decision making in manoeuvring the ship. The
operational level can be the basics and the management level is
the advance. It shows that in operational level that you are the
support of the management level officers. For example, during
bad weather, piloting, anchoring, berthing/ unberthing
operation and navigating in restricted waters.
