Advanced Fire Fighting is a 4 day course necessary for deck and engineering officers wishing to apply for a Certificate of Competency, and for any crew designated to control fire fighting operations on board a ship. Particular attention is paid to organisation, tactics and effective command. In order to qualify for the course, students must be physically fit and hold an STCW Basic Fire Prevention and Fire-fighting certificate.
The course involves 2 days theoretical work and 2 days practical on the fire ground including the following:
- Fire fighting procedures both at sea and in port
- Extinguisher use and maintenance
- Breathing Apparatus
- Communication techniques & tactical command
- Stability issues regarding fires on board ships
- Casualty response and handling
- Ventilation, fuel and electrical systems
- IMDG Code
- Fire investigation and report writing
Our classroom is in Antibes, and our FIREGROUND is conveniently located in Contes, just a 35 minute drive from Antibes. This is UNIQUE in the South of France. You will save time by not having to travel long distances to fire-grounds.
Our training team is made up of experienced Firefighters and Marine Engineering professionals. Our facilities are located at a working fire-station in the South of France. The fires we light are real, and our tri-deck simulator parallels that of a commercial vessel. We believe that realistic training is the only way to prepare firefighters for the emergencies that they may be faced with one day.
Our course is MCA approved and complies with STCW Code 1978 as amended, meeting the requirements set out in Section A-VI/3. We issue our own certification so you will receive your certificate immediately on successful completion of the course.
This course is available upon demand and sufficient numbers. Please enquire directly with Seascope France.
