STCW Courses

STCW Basic Safety Training is designed to give anyone working aboard superyachts and commercial vessels basic knowledge of Personal Survival Techniques, Basic Fire Fighting and Fire Prevention, Elementary First Aid and Personal Safety and Social Responsibility.  Courses generally last five to six days but may also be offered as separate modules.

Personal Survival Techniques includes a session in a pool and covers survival equipment as well as principles and techniques for sea survival.

The Elementary First Aid module teaches the immediate action to be taken in the event of an accident or other medical emergency and involves both practical and theory sessions.  Some more advanced first aid courses are also available if you need more than basic knowledge.

Personal Safety and Social Responsibility is about developing good working practices and covers safety procedures, accident prevention and the prevention of marine pollution.

Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting looks at the ways in which fires are caused and precautions to minimise the risk of fires on board ships.  This module also teaches the use of breathing apparatus and practical fire fighting techniques with lots of hands on training.  More advanced training in Fire Fighting is also offered.

STCW training is recognised worldwide and courses are offered by a wide variety of sea schools, colleges and specialist maritime training organisations all over the world. Simply follow the links below for further information as well as course dates and prices.
