Still unsure about what STCW Refresher Training Means for you?

Posted: December 10, 2015

MCA approved STCW Refresher Training


Basic Safety Training Requirements

Before being assigned any shipboard tasks, anyone employed or engaged in any capacity on board a ship with designated safety or pollution-prevention duties, will be required to successfully complete those elements of approved basic training appropriate to their duties and functions. The four elements of basic training are:

  • Personal Survival Techniques (STCW Table A-VI/1-1)
  • Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting (STCW Table A-VI/1-2)
  • Elementary First Aid (STCW Code – Table A-VI/1-3)
  • Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities (STCW Code – Table A-VI/1-4)

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:

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

 

 

 Seafarers required to hold any of the certificates of proficiency listed above shall, every five years, provide evidence of having maintained the required standard of competence to undertake the tasks, duties and responsibilities specified in the tables.

Seafarers validating their CoC or CoP after 1st January 2017 will be required to submit documentary evidence of having completed such training.

What this means for you & your organisation

From 1st January 2017, Port State Control Officers will require seafarers to provide documentary evidence of having maintained the required standard of competence to undertake the tasks, duties and responsibilities listed above. Presenting the documentary evidence obtained on completing an MCA approved refresher course will meet this requirement.

All Companies are required by STCW Reg I/14 to ensure that seafarers assigned to any of its ships have received refresher and updating training required by STCW.
