Progress Update


We currently await approval from the IMA on our STCW  Refresher suite of courses and will keep you updated on the progress of our submission. Watch this space. 
New Legislative Requirements

In conforming to the provisions of STCW Convention Regulation 1/14, and section A-1/14, of the STCW Code, companies must ensure that seafarers assigned to any of their ships have received refresher and updating training as required by the convention.

If a member of your team is serving on board a ship and is qualified in any of the following, they must, as of the 1st of January 2017, have documentary evidence of either having completed the training course or updated their training within the last 5 years.

The 2010 Manila Amendments to the STCW Code introduced new requirements for seafarers to hold the following certificates of proficiency:

  • Personal Survival Techniques (STCW Table A-VI/1-1)
  • Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting (STCW Table A-VI/1-2)
  • Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats Other Than Fast Rescue Boats (STCW Table A-VI/2-1)
  • Proficiency in Fast Rescue Boats (STCW Table A-VI/2-2)
  • Advanced Fire Fighting (STCW Table A-VI/3)
