STCW Basic Safety Training
STCW Basic Training (BT) is required for seafarers employed or engaged in any capacity on board ship at all levels such as deck and engine room rating qualifications, for most navigation, and all engineering certificates of competency. The course is for new entrants to the larger ships in the marine industry, or experienced mariners who have not had previous safety training, with the knowledge and skills to contain, report, and respond to a marine emergency, fight fires, abandon ship and understand the basics of workplace safety.
The STCW Basic Training course is also the legal minimum requirement for anyone looking for commercial work aboard vessels over 24 meters, including Superyachts and Cruise ships. For receiving a certificate of Basic Safety Training, the delegate must not younger than 18 years, and meet the standard of competence for certificates of Basic Safety Training set out in various STCW sections. Participants will be assessed against the learning outcomes by using direct observation and oral and/or written questions as appropriate.
After successful completion of the Basic Training, certification will be valid for 5 years. With the implementation of the STCW 2010, delegates must provide evidence of having the competencies by completing refresher training every 5 years, as described in the STCW Code 1978, as amended.

Shipboard Firefighting Practical Assessment: Student Guidelines
• Students should be in good physical condition.
• Due to the strenuous nature of class activities, you should secure a professional evaluation of your physical condition prior to enrolling in this course.
• Full length pants, shirts that cover the shoulder and enclosed shoes are required.
• The total weight of a firefighter's PPE depends on the tools needed for the job, but basic PPE (helmet, hood, pants, coat, gloves, boots and air pack) weighs about 45 pounds. Add a thermal imaging camera, radio, box light and set of irons (Halligan bar and axe) and you're up to about 75 pounds.
• Some evolutions will be performed in zero to limited visibility.
• Limited visibility requires the student to crawl during some evolutions. (Estimated distance 80’.)
• Students must be clean shaven. Moustaches must not extend into the interface of the mask and the face.
