About the course
STCW Basic Safety Training is a one week long course comprised of five modules. The course provides students with an important introduction to working at sea and will equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to work safely on-board a seagoing vessel. Although it is a legal requirement for working on board commercial vessels over 24-metres, it is strongly recommended to be taken by all seafarers. Once students obtain STCW Basic Safety Training they are equipped with the minimum mandatory requirement for working on superyachts and commercial vessels over 24 metres in length.
Our STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watch keeping) courses are run in accordance with section A-VI/1 of the STCW Code including the Manila amendments introduced in 2010.
