When can I do my block course for Skipper Restricted Limits (SRL)?

You need to complete your 19 weeks online course work before attending a block course or you cannot attend the block course.


Once you have submitted an application, you will be sent a Confirmation Letter.  This letter will state the start and end date of your programme.  You need to select one of the block courses within these dates.  You must return the Secure Your Enrolment form of log back into MyNMIT to confirm your place on the programme before we can send you the SRL resource pack (that will include your login details to access your online course material) and invoice for the programme.


Please note that payment is required by the start date of the programme, not the start date of the block course.  If you accept your place, you will receive an invoice three weeks before the programme start date.  If you decided not to continue your studies on this programme, you must inform NMIT in writing, within the first three weeks from the programme start date to ensure your enrolment is cancelled.


If you enrol on a flexi programme, your programme start and end dates will be approximately one year, meaning that you have one year to complete the online course work and block course.  You cannot asked to be transferred to another flexi option.


For students who are eligible to receive a student allowance, we have a 24 week option available for you to enrol on.  Initially you will be sent a flexi programme option therefore you must request to be switched to the 24 week option so you can receive an allowance.  The block course is scheduled to be delivered 5 weeks before the programme end date.  You must complete all your course work and the block course within the 24 weeks.  No extension will be given.


You must actively engage with your online work.  Once you have fully enrolled and you are having issues logging in, please email SRL.Coordination@nmit.ac.nz.  Please be aware once you have fully enrolled, if you do not attempt any of the online work and/or attend the block course within the programme dates stated in your letter, you cannot ask for a refund.


Prior to attending the block course you need to complete the online component of the programme and your MNZ Training Record Book.  The MNZ Training Record Book is available for download here.


Important 

If you already hold a radio certificate (MROC) and/or a current first aid certificate you may not need to attend these courses but you will have to supply copies of these certificates for recognition of prior learning.  Copies to be supplied to the Maritime Office within two weeks of your programme start date (not your block course date).  Email copies to SRL.Coordination@nmit.ac.nz.
