Rhys created the topic: FDP Appendix 5 -AND- CLWA - Exam #1
It's not clear to me why the answer to the below/ attached question about Appendix 5 FDP and off-duty time is correct.
My interpretation of Appendix 5 FDP and off-duty is that you:
1. Take the night off at the end of your FDP shift (12hrs)
2. Take the next day/ night (24hrs)
3. This totals 36hrs and includes 2 consecutive nights and the intervening day
How then can the answer be correct?
QUESTION: "Your company operates under CAO 48.1 Appendix 5 2019
In the fortnight prior to the end of a proposed FDP your off-duty periods must include an off-duty period of at least-
a. 36 hours including two consecutive days off plus the intervening night
b. 12 hours including the hours from 0900 to 1700 LMT
c. 36 hours including two consecutive nights off plus the intervening day Incorrect
d. 24 hours including the hours from 0600 to 1800 LMT
Your answer is incorrect.
Appendix 5 para 5.2 (a)
You must have 36 hours off including two local nights. That makes the answer 36 hours including two consecutive days off plus the intervening night The correct answer is: 36 hours including two consecutive days off plus the intervening night
