|Title: Clarification of Certain Mariner Training Requirements|
The Coast Guard proposes to remove four Coast Guard merchant mariner training requirements related to STCW officer and rating endorsements from its regulations in 46 CFR parts 11 and 12. The Coast Guard has determined these training requirements exceed current international certification and training standards of the STCW and cause a misalignment between the training of U.S. mariners and the mariners of other countries. These training requirements are not necessary for the safety of life and property at sea. The rule would remove: leadership and managerial skills training to qualify as master of vessels of less than 500 gross tons limited to near-coastal waters; demonstration of meeting the standard of competence in leadership and teamworking (LTW) skills to renew an endorsement as officer in charge of a navigational watch (OICNW) on vessels of less than 500 GT limited to near-coastal waters after January 1, 2017; bridge resource management training to qualify as officer in charge of a navigational watch on vessels of less than 500 gross tons limited to near-coastal waters; and computer systems and maintenance training to qualify as electro- technical rating on vessels powered by main propulsion machinery of 750 kW/1,000 HP or more.

Statement of Need:
The Coast Guard determined the four training requirements exceed current international certification and training standards of the STCW and cause a misalignment between the training of U.S. mariners and the mariners of other countries. These training requirements are not necessary for the safety of life and property at sea.
Anticipated Costs and Benefits:
The benefit of the proposed rule would be realized as cost savings for mariners. Removing the Leadership and Management Skills, Bridge Resource Management, and Leadership and Team Working Skills training requirements would lead to an annualized cost savings for mariners.
