Additional information

WHAT IS THE STCW?

The Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping certificate, more commonly known as the STCW, is a minimum requirement for working onboard a yacht, whether you’re a Deckhand, Stewardess, or Captain.

The STCW is an International Convention for seafarers that was established in 1978, it details the minimum standards relating to training which all countries are obliged to meet, or exceed. It is often referred to as STCW 95 but the ’95’ was the year in which major revisions were made to the original code. ‘STCW 2010’ is the latest amendment.

 

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE STCW BASIC SAFETY TRAINING COURSE?

STCW 2010 requires all seafarers to receive basic safety training in accordance with section A-VI/1 of the STCW Code. The minimum requirements for familiarisation and basic safety training are included within our Basic Safety Training course.

There are five separate modules:

Personal Survival Techniques and Fire Prevention and Firefighting are the practical modules that take place outside of the classroom, First Aid also has practical elements but can be done from the comfort of our classrooms in Palma. These modules are usually held over five consecutive training days OR you can also book the PSA and PSSR courses individually if you haven’t completed them yet.

 

WHAT IS NEEDED TO DO THE COURSE?

There are no actual pre-requisites for this course, but we recommend students should be able to swim and hold a Seafarer’s Medical report prior to booking the STCW Basic Safety Training.

HOW LONG IS THE STCW CERTIFICATE VALID FOR?

You must complete STCW refresher training every five years. The update course usually includes the Personal Survival Techniques and Fire Prevention and Firefighting modules. We also recommend keeping an up-to-date First Aid certificate, as this can also be a pre-requisite to other qualifications such as a Yachtmaster Coastal or Offshore exam or RYA Commercial Endorsement.
