COURSE STRUCTURE

Classroom sessions –

In-class courses run 6 days a week including Saturdays with classes starting at 0800 and finishing at 1600. We do not move any quicker than any one group can work and while we have allocated course durations for all in-class courses, depending on the group, it may be completed sooner. It is your responsibility to complete your assignments once the course has finished should you not have time during the course to complete them all.  If you cannot attend a scheduled session, you are required to advise us as soon as possible and arrange to catch up in your own time.  As part of the maritime training package curriculum, each course holds a practical assessment component and students must attend our Brisbane Campus to complete this. In-class students will complete the mandatory practical assessment whilst at the college during the course.

Practicals can be completed offsite for Corporate Clients or groups of 8 or more, provided all the resources required have been audited and approved.

Remote / Flexible –

If you do not have time to attend classes you can study remotely.  When you have enrolled and paid your course deposit, you will be given access to your student portal which holds all of the course content and assignments. Your assignments can be submitted to your designated assessor and feedback received through the same system. Remote students are given 10 contact hours with their designated assessor to assist them through this process should they need it, and further assistance is available for students when necessary. Once Remote students have complete all of their assignments, they will need to contact ECA Maritime College to organise a time to sit their written exams.  As part of the maritime training package curriculum, each course holds a practical assessment component and students must attend our Brisbane Campus to complete this. ECA Maritime College is unable to issue a certificate without ALL components of the curriculum being satisfied, this includes the practical assessment. ECA Maritime College offers the practical assessment and AMPA completion as a collaborative day, however students who are choosing to not complete their AMPA with us will still need to satisfy the practical assessment component.
