Pilotage Training: Structured Training Programmes and Proficiency Plans
Anyone who trains new or existing pilots or PEC Holders must have an approved Structured Training Programme in place.
Guidance for completing programmes and plans
The guidance documents are to help those writing a structured training programme for trainee pilots and PEC Holders, or a proficiency plan for pilots or PEC Holders.
The guidance also advises how to submit it to Maritime New Zealand (Maritime NZ) for approval. You’ll need to choose the guidance that is applicable to your situation.

Applications for new programmes and plans
The application forms contain a checklist to ensure you have covered all of the rules required to be able to process your application, and information about the fees and processing timeframes.
Please note that we cannot renew a programme or proficiency plan, so at the approval expiry of your programme or plan you will need to apply for a new approval from Maritime NZ.Application form for approval of a proficiency plan [PDF: 287kB, 11 pages] Application form for approval of a structured training programme [PDF: 312kB, 12 pages]
