Regulated by the MCA and confirms with MNTB guidelines, the fire prevention and firefighting course provides seafarers with the essential education and training in fire prevention and firefighting meeting the knowledge, understanding and proficiency (KUP) set out in the STCW Convention and Code 1978, as amended.
It includes the correct action to take in an emergency, perform firefighting operations using a range of equipment, wearing of self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), working in smoke and casualty recovery.

Delegates should be clean shaven as the course includes the wearing of breathing apparatus.

Delegates must also provide government issued photo identification on their day of training. This is a mandatory requirement and failure to provide this will prevent the delegate taking the training until verification can be made.
