Essential training for the professional marine industry, the five-day STCW Basic Safety Training package provides all those attending with the practical skills and knowledge to comply with the mandatory requirements of the five modules of STCW 10 Basic Safety Training.

These are:

STCW 10 Personal Survival Techniques

Realistic, practical, sea-based training. Have you had the opportunity to test yourself working in salt water, working with strangers to organise yourself in a life raft with plumes of water beating down on you? Our one-day STCW 10 Personal Survival Training course is run fortnightly. Run by professional trainers who have really been there and done that, our training is a cut above other courses. Here you'll get the opportunity to jump into cold water, practice survival techniques in the sea and work with others to learn survival techniques. You will get the opportunity to test yourself in fully controlled, but more difficult conditions than those usually experienced in an indoor swimming pool. Unlike real-life conditions, you'll be wearing dry-suits and thermal clothing, but we aim for all other parts of the course to be as realistic as possible.
