STCW 95 Personal Survival Techniques

The Standard of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) code requires all seafarers to receive familiarisation and basic safety training or instruction in accordance with section A-VI/1. You will be made aware of safety procedures, the safety equipment available, employment conditions and the working environment on board a merchant vessel. This is essential information that will keep yourself, your crew members and passengers safe.

The STCW 95 (Basic) course is open to either former Trident trained personnel, or prospective students that have loaded onto the combined MSO Offshore Pro course.
