A Ship Security Officer (SSO) is the person on board the ship who is designated by the Company and the vessel’s Master. They are responsible for the overall management and oversight of all shipboard security policies, programs, and procedures and must report to the Master.
If you’re working or planning on working on vessels over 500Gt, it is important to remember that the vessel must be certified in the International Ship and Port Facility Security code (ISPS) and also have a qualified Ship Security Officer onboard.
During the current COVID-19 Pandemic we want to ensure that students are still able to study, this is why we have developed Virtual interactive courses. You’ll learn in real-time with our experienced instructors.
To take part in a virtual interactive course you need to download the Zoom app to your PC/Mac/Tablet (we recommend using these rather than a phone for quality), full instructions on this can be found in the course dates below.
Candidates who wish to take the Ships Security Officer (SSO) course should have completed at least 12 months of documented seagoing service (or a minimum of 3 months seagoing service, if the candidate has been signed on to a vessel in a security role) and knowledge of ships operations.
