STCW Basic Refresher Training 3-day


Course Outline

This is the essential Refresher training for the commercial maritime seafarers who hold STCW Basic Safety Training certificates and who want them refreshed in accordance with the STCW Conventions Manila Amendments and don’t hold STCW Advanced certificates.

Our 3 day (or 2 day if it is an especially scheduled refresher training week – we try to run these on an average once a month - subject to minimum numbers) STCW Basic Refresher Training package provides the practical skills and knowledge to be certificated for the STCW Personal Survival Techniques & STCW Fire Prevention & Fire Fighting Refresher modules of training as laid down in the STCW code.

Our Basic Refresher Training allows seafarers to take part in the full STCW Personal Survival Techniques & STCW Fire Prevention & Fire Fighting course, receiving all the required instruction at the reduced price of £370.00. This allows us the opportunity to offer seafarers this course 50 weeks of the year!

Content & Objectives

The Personal Survival Techniques training can be very strenuous and involves jumping from a safe height (approx. 1.4m) – in Medina River, getting into and out of a life raft and righting an upturned life raft; and in the case of Fire Fighting, physically demanding, especially during some of the exercises involving live fires and the use of breathing apparatus we do need therefore, to ensure all our delegates are fit and well in order to be able to take part. Learners must be physically fit and will be required to complete and sign a confidential medical declaration informing us of any health problems that we would have to take into account. We reserve the right to carry out a risk assessment where an individual provides us with doubt of fitness to participate.

Learning Mode

This STCW Basic Refresher training takes place over 3 days and is delivered through a combination of theory and hands-on exercises with focus on the practical elements of training.

Sea survival theory sessions are taught in the dedicated Red Ensign classrooms. The course also comprises a supervised compulsory liferaft launch, inversion and entry as well as individual and group based swimming activities in a secured area in the river in front of our training premises.

Fire fighting uses real smoke, fire and breathing apparatus along with fire hoses and extinguishers in our purpose built fire fighting training facility. Candidates’ competence is assessed through their active participation during the practical session and with a test at the end of the module.
