One more DNV GL competence-related standard. This publication was prepared and intended for the ship's senior officers who must be capable of performing their duties and tasks relating to cargo handling on board LNG, i.e. liquefied natural gas carriers. Note that this document specifies competence requirements above ones of STCW Convention and any other relevant national requirements. The arrangement of the standard differs a bit from the similar publications providing requirements to the tender operators or operators working on the product tankers etc. Of course, the introductory section is there along with the section dedicated to the taxonomy. The third section of the booklet provides competence requirements and test matrix, while the last, fourth, section provides necessary information on proper assessment of the shipboard LNG cargo operators, namely requirements for qualification of examiners/assessors, cargo handling simulator, and for additional testing, as well as testing protocols and assessment criteria for use by assessors/examiners - it provides readers with some practical assignments for better illustration of the requirements listed in the main body of the standard.
