STCW Refresher Training - time is of the essence...

As many are aware, the 2010 Manila amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watch Keeping for Seafarers, 1978 contain updates to training requirements

Seafarers working on certain types of vessels need to re-validate their Certificates of Competency (CoC’s) prior to 1st January 2017 - ensuring all certifications (under the STCW Code) are valid for service.

This particularly applies to those working on commercial vessels who completed their training prior to 1st July 2013.

Some key elements affected are:

· Personal Survival Techniques (PST)
· Fire Prevention & Fire Fighting (FP&FF)
· Proficiency in Fast Rescue Boat (PFRB)
· Advanced Fire Fighting (AFF)
· Proficiency in Survival Craft & Rescue Boats (PSCRB)
· ECDIS Training for Masters & Officers

Each case is different, whether it's vessel, sea time, position held, duties or current qualifications. OMT Training Ltd are committed to assisting crews with updating these certifications and giving advice on what's truly essential.

We understand only a certain number of personnel can be released from the boat at each time, which is why we aim to tailor our courses and dates with the aim of catering to each vessels requirements, coordinating onboard training where necessary.

For a comprehensive list of courses and availability or to discuss your refresher training, please get in touch.
