STCW Personal Safety & Social Responsibilities
PSSR is a course offering new and experienced crew members the basic health and safety advice required on modern and traditional vessels. It covers basic hazards, personal protective equipment, general health and safety advice and general and emergency routines which you might come across.
Duration: ½ Day
STCW Basic Fire prevention and fire fighting
The facility used for this course is also used by the Fire Service to conduct their training
The course gives the knowledge of the ways in which fires are caused and the precautions to be taken to minimise the risk of fires in ships. It involves considerable practical fire fighting and includes:
* Response to emergency situations involving fires
* Fire fighting and fire extinguishing using portable equipment
* The use of breathing apparatus
* Act as an effective member of a fire fighting party
Duration: 2 Days
STCW Personal Survival Techniques
Personal Survival Techniques is the STCW name for Sea Survival. This course is a mandatory requirement for commercial fishermen and offshore commercial boatmen including merchant seamen and Super-yacht crews. Quite similar to the RYA Sea Survival course, we teach you the necessary skills to survive if you are ever unlucky enough to have to abandon ship with more emphasis on the evacuation systems fitted to personnel and hazardous cargo ships. You will get the opportunity to wear a survival suit and experience the equipment fitted to most merchant ships.
Duration: 1 Day
STCW Elementary First Aid
STCW Elementary First Aid is one of the four compulsory commercial modules required to work on larger vessels. It is internationally recognised and goes into more depth than the RYA First Aid at Sea. Covers CPR, breaks & splints, bandaging, drowning and hypothermia and much more.
Duration: 1 Day
Proficiency in Security Awareness
Proficiency in Security Awareness is a course offering new and experienced crew members the basic information required to carry out security duties onboard and help you to have a heightened security awareness. The International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) code outlines the need for security and vigilance onboard merchant vessels of all sizes. This course aims to ensure you can:
report a security incident, including a piracy or armed robbery threat or attack;
know the procedures to follow when they recognise a security threat ; and
take part in security-related emergency and contingency procedures.
The course is compulsory for all new crew members and for existing crew members unless they have had at least six months documented sea service on an approved vessel between 1st January 2009 and 1st January 2012 or already hold the SSO or CSO qualification. Full details are in MIN 472-2
