The STCW Convention has been amended by the 2010 Manila Amendments which contains new training requirements. Seafarers are required to provide documentary evidence of having maintained the required standard of competence every 5 years in order to undertake jobs pertaining to emergency, occupational safety and survival functions.

There are two Routes for completing this course. Some parts of the updating training can be completed on-board a ship. Evidence of on-board updating is proven by signing the appropriate “self-declaration” form.

Route 1 is for those with previous on board training and will run for 3.5 days.
Route 2 is for those with no previous on board training and will run for 4 days.

The course is offered in partnership with Flagship Fire Fighting Training LTD (part of the Babcock International group).
