STCW - Basic Sea Safety Course
Our five day entry level STCW Basic Safety training programme meets the requirements of the international ‘Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping’, commonly known as STCW 95/2010. These standards, established by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), provide a baseline for the STCW Basic Safety training and education of seafarers around the world.
They were introduced to counter a growing number of accidents at sea caused by ‘human error’, several of which involved vessels we now know as 'superyachts'.
With safety high on the yacht owner’s agenda, it is now commonplace to request an STCW 95/2010 Basic Safety training certificate from even the most junior crew members.
The 5 day STCW Basic Safety Training course is made up of four elements which meet the minimum STCW 2010 training requirements :
