This Week’s Highlight: Navy Sustainment Training

As the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) introduces new platforms to the fleet, a range of support services will be required. This week we look at a training opportunity to support the introduction of the new Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) vessels. This Request for Tender (RFT) seeks to establish an AOR Training – Sustainment Contract. The training will be required to assist the RAN to support and deliver the Sustainment training, post Introduction Into Service (IIS), of the new AORs NUSHIP Supply and Stalwart as part of Project Sea 1654 Phase 3.

Training will be made available to students both from the AOR platform as well as other platform vessels as several courses relate to common Navy systems across multiple platforms. The expectation is that courses will cover a range of topics commencing with AOR Ships Familiarisation and breaking out into the vessels main systems and compartments including Seamanship Upper Deck Familiarisation, Cargo and Material Handling, IPSM Maintainer and Administrators training, Marine Engineering Propulsion Systems, Magazines systems, navigation systems , anchoring and towing etc.

Of note is that this opportunity is not limited to Registered Training Organisations only with an option provided for non-RTOs who can prove that their training program will comply with the same quality standards and rigour as an RTO. The sustainment training is scheduled to commence in late June 2021, and will incorporate the ability to provide common cross platform training to other classes of ship. The initial period of the contract is for two years with two one year extensions to be used at the Commonwealth’s discretion.

Please note that items of information in the RFT package require the submission of a Deed of Confidentiality in order to be released and while there is no industry brief, a slide pack in PowerPoint format is included as part of the RFT package for information. The closing date for this RFT is 27th November 2020.
