STCW Basic Safety Training focuses on basic safety skills and knowledge in order to provide a framework for safe working practices, emergency procedures and teamwork within the maritime environment.

This course is considered a minimum entry requirement for anyone who wishes to work on yachts or in commercial sector of the maritime industry. It is engaging, challenging and most of all fun! However what you learn during the STCW basic training, could save your own life or that of a crew mate or guest.

STCW stands for the “Standards of Training and Certification of Watchkeeping” as determined by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The STCW Basic Safety Training course is mandated by ALL flag States for all working seafarers. It is the international standard, approved by MCA, USCG, the Marshall Islands Registry and nearly every leading flag state in the world.

In 2010, the STCW convention was reviewed and ultimately added Security to the basic certification requirement. As a result Bluewater Crew Training in Antibes now offers the Security with Designated Duties module, which runs frequently throughout the year.

    Just finished my Yachting in Action course with bluewater last week. Could not have had a better time! The whole team from the office staff through to all of the instructors were great! Very proffessional and freindly. Would definitely reccommend this course and company to everyone.

    Very helpful friendly team, help with lists for accomodation etc. All courses were in English run by instructors who know the yachting industry well. Great advice and support and resturant on site along with coffee/vending machines and a club house

    Société à fuir car proche de l'escroquerie. En effet beaucoup d'éléments ont été volontairement dissimulés comme par exemple l'impossibilité de travailler sur des bateaux français avec leurs formations !!! Il y a un très gros manque d'informations dans cette entreprise qui n'accompagne pas du tout Les gens vers l'emploi. À mon avis ça ne doit pas être dur de trouver mieux ailleurs

    Not very helpful at all. Staff knew nothing about the so called training courses. The person I spoke with seemed to have a limited mental capacity. Try using words with only a single syllable or take a 5 year old with you to help with communication.
