As of 1st January 2017, it will be mandatory for all persons working on a commercial vessel, to provide documentary proof of having undertaken or updated certain STCW courses within the previous five years, including Personal Survival Techniques (PST) and Fire Prevention & Fire Fighting (FPFF) training.

For those persons who have already completed the full STCW PST & FPFF previously, the Updating Training course may be used to fulfil the above requirements in lieu of repeating the full course again, subject to the entry pre-requisites below.
This package follows MCA approved programmes of study, designed to refresh your knowledge of sea survival techniques and fire prevention and fire fighting techniques.

Enhanced Refresher Package:

According to STCW regulations, the STCW Elementary First Aid certificate does not need to be updated. However, many shipping companies will not accept certificates more than 5 years old. An increasing number insist that the course is re-taken on a regular basis, sometimes as often as every 2 years!

If you book a Refresher Package with us, we offer you the chance to update your First Aid qualification for an additional £60.00. And you are invited to join in on the full Fire Fighting course, at no extra charge! So 4 days training for £470.00 (inc VAT)! This represents superb value for money.

PST Module:

  • Donning and using an immersion suit
  • Swim while wearing a life jacket
  • Boarding a survival craft from the water
  • Righting an inverted life raft
  • Jump from a height into the water
  • Keep afloat without a life jacket

FPFF Module:

  • Minimise risk of fire on board
  • Refresh skills in procedure, personal safety requirements and re-familiarise in ship board equipment
  • Refresh skills to fight and extinguish fires
