STCW Basic Course

STCW Basic Safety Training

STCW stands for Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping. It is a worldwide convention that ensures a lateral standard of training is achieved across all countries in the world. So for instance, if you're a Captain from Europe or America, you will have to undergo similar training in accordance with the STCW convention. The STCW Basic Safety Training course is the legal minimum requirement for anyone looking for commercial work aboard vessels over 24 metres, including Superyachts and Cruise ships. As well as the four core modules, we have now included the Proficiency in Security Awareness module as part of our course, at no additional cost to you.
