All News Courses General News Monday, 1st October 2018

In our first week at Red Ensign we were given the amazing opportunity to take part in the STCW Basic Safety Training Week that the company offers to its clients.

“I’ve never experienced anything like it” said Ben (Apprentice Bosun) after taking part in the challenging and exhilarating Fire Prevention & Firefighting Course. The course mixed classroom learning with practical hands on fire fighting techniques. We ended the 2 day course on the “fire pad” working as a team through the smoke filled training house in full breathing apparatus. “I found the fire training the most daunting yet rewarding of all the activities as it was completely out of my comfort zone” said Kloe (Apprentice Business Admin).

The Sea Survival 1 Day Course was another highlight during which we learnt how to survive in the worst case scenario of an abandon ship order. “As I am training to be a Bosun these are valuable skills that could help me save a life one day” said Owen (Apprentice Bosun). This included how to inflate and man a life raft as well as learning the correct use of the survival kit. “Jumping into the river Medina in a full dry suit was a whole new experience for me and helped give the course a realistic feel preparing me just in case the worst should happen” said Kloe.

After our first week we are all very excited to take advantage of the new opportunities we have all been given here at Red Ensign. All the team, instructors and office staff have been very supportive, helpful and understanding with the three of us. We are all very much looking forward to our future here with the Red Ensign Team.
