Service personnel for the maintenance, thorough examination, operational testing, overhaul and repair of lifeboats (including free-fall lifeboats) and rescue boats (including fast rescue boats), launching appliances and release gear

This document establishes a uniform, safe and consistent approach to the technical training of personnel for the maintenance, thorough examination, operational testing, overhaul and repair of lifeboats (including free-fall lifeboats) and rescue boats (including fast rescue boats), launching appliances and release gear. It also provides the necessary information for interested parties to grant authorization, effectively evaluate and audit training, supporting the IMO Requirements, Section 3. It specifies the training requirements for the Level 1 controlled environment education and technical training for personnel certified by a manufacturer or an authorized service provider to carry out maintenance, thorough examination, operational testing, overhaul and repair of lifeboats (including free-fall lifeboats) and rescue boats (including fast rescue boats), launching appliances and release gear. The Level 1 training is split into two Stages, both covered in this document: — Stage 1, Service Technician technical controlled environment education and training, has five modules that consist of classroom-based theory followed by practical sessions. The five modules encompass the scope and range of technical knowledge and skills required to assume type specific design coverage of survival craft, release systems, davits and winches. The modules focus on supporting the requirements in part of the IMO Requirements, paragraphs 8.1, 8.2.1.1-8.2.1.6, 8.2.2, and 8.2.3. — Stage 2, Service Technician technical controlled environment experience and assessment, where candidates undertake a minimum of four supervised scenarios-based practical exercises assessments covering the range of type specific complete systems for which they will be certified. This document is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO/PAS 23678-1, ISO/PAS 23678-2 and ISO/PAS 23678-4. This document is applicable to the following types of lifeboats (including free-fall lifeboats), rescue boats (including fast rescue boats), launching appliances and release gear.

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

ISO/PAS 23678-3:2020(E)
Introduction

The industry recognises that a major objective is to prevent accidents and incidents from occurring. A

global network of competent personnel employed by authorized service providers is vital for lifesaving

appliances to remain fit for purpose, sustaining crew confidence and contributing to the prevention of

incidents and accidents.

It has been recognized from the new requirements in IMO Resolution MSC.402 (96) for maintenance,

thorough examination, operational testing, overhaul and repair of lifeboats (including free-fall

lifeboats) and rescue boats (including fast rescue boats), launching appliances, and release gear

(henceforth referred to as "the IMO Requirements") adopted 19th May 2016 and entering into force

1st January 2020, that it is necessary to develop an International Standard. This necessity is based on

the IMO Requirement in paragraph 7.1.1:

"Employment and documentation of personnel certified in accordance with a recognized national,

international or industry standard as applicable, or a manufacturer's established certification programme.

In either case, the certification programme shall comply with section 8 for each make and type of equipment

for which service is to be provided;"

This document and the associated ISO/PAS 23678-1, ISO/PAS 23678-2 and ISO/PAS 23678-4 have been

developed to achieve three key objectives.

1. The first objective was to develop training documents that would support the IMO Requirements,

section 7, paragraph 7.1.1.

2. The second objective was to develop training documents that would provide a consistent, reliable,

and standardised approach to training and provide a clear auditable trail for interested parties to

grant authorisation supporting the IMO Requirements, section 3, to approved service providers.

3. The third objective was to develop training documents that would enable personnel certified by

authorized service providers to develop and maintain competencies identified by industry experts

to a Level that enables them to competently work unsupervised on equipment covered by this

document.

This document has been developed by identifying common design features in relation to survival craft,

davits, winches and release gear makes and types for which service is to be provided. This has been

achieved by conducting professional discussions with disciplined experts, to obtain the appropriate

information to develop a training programme that is fit for purpose. Successfully completing the service

technician training in ISO/PAS 23678-2, ISO/PAS 23678-3 and ISO/PAS 23678-4 enables personnel

certified by an authorized service provider to meet the IMO Requirements, section 7, paragraph 7.1.1,

and section 8.
The ISO/PAS 23678-series on service technician training consists of:

— Part 1 Guidance to training providers; describes the competence route of the candidate and the

resources that the training provider needs to deliver the training.

— Part 2 Initial training; describes the training programme for initial familiarisation and induction

training that is classroom education. The training programme focuses on introducing individuals

to the complex terminology, rules and regulations, organisations, health and safety which a service

technician needs to understand in order to carry out their role.

— Part 3 Level 1 training; describes the controlled environment education and training delivered

at a training school. The training programme focuses on the technical training for type specific

lifesaving appliances.

— Part 4 Level 2 in-field competence; describes the requirements for initial in-field and ongoing

competence assessments.
