Course Structure

Upon completion of two Post-Diploma Certificates within a 2-year validity period, the participant will be awarded the Specialist Diploma in Marine Production from Ngee Ann Polytechnic. 

The two Post-Diploma Certificates are:

Post-Diploma Certificate (PDC) in Shipyard Operations #
Modules Synopsis
Marine Production Process This module aims to refresh and deepen students' knowledge of marine production processes in marine production yards incorporating marine safety practices and standards. These processes include material, fabrication, sub-assembly, assembly, painting, erection, load-out / launching etc.
Yard Layout Design This module aims to deepen students' knowledge and skills in marine production yards layout design in view of yard layout for considerations of various business models, such as new building, repair and conversion yards. Together with yard layout, students will gain knowledge of different facilities used at different processes and will be able to estimate the production flow efficiency. Students will also learn the classification rules and requirements, types of survey and hull steel renewal.
OJT in Shipyard Operations (for ELP participants)

Students get to apply the knowledge learnt from the previous two modules in the context of the workplace environment to demonstrate their understanding of domain knowledge. The assessment is based on pre-designed tasks, developed together with industry partners dealing with Shipyard Operations. The student will make a final presentation and a report will need to be submitted. The module will be graded jointly with the workplace mentors.

For students not participating in the SkillsFuture Earn and Learn Programme, previous relevant working experience may be considered under Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or a company-based project may be offered, in lieu of OJT.
 

Post-Diploma Certificate (PDC) in Marine Commissioning & Specialization
Modules Synopsis
Marine Commissioning This module aims to refresh and deepen students' knowledge of marine production processes in marine production yards incorporating marine safety practices and standards. These processes include material, fabrication, sub-assembly, assembly, painting, erection, load-out / launching etc.
Marine Specialization in Hull, Outfitting & Shipwright This module aims to deepen students' knowledge and skills in marine production specialization in discipline of Hull, Outfitting and Shipwright in views of scope of work, tasks performed at stages and standard procedures in production. Students will be exposed to marine industry common practice/standard in carrying out Hull, Outfitting and Shipwright activities to enable them to organize such activities, determine hull, outfitting and shipwright requirement in real working environment. Some common technical skills will be taught during the study, such as Material Taking Out, Mooring Requirement and determination, sizing of outfitting items such as ventilation and heating ducts, etc.
OJT in Marine Commissioning & Specialization (for ELP participants)

This module allows students to apply the knowledge learnt from the previous two modules in the context of the workplace environment to demonstrate their understanding of domain knowledge. The assessment is based on pre-designed tasks, developed together with industry partners dealing with Marine Commissioning and Specialization. The student will make a final presentation and a report will need to be submitted. The module will be graded jointly with the workplace mentors.

For students not participating in the SkillsFuture Earn and Learn Programme, previous relevant working experience may be considered under Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or a company-based project may be offered, in lieu of OJT.
