STCW Basic Safety Training is a one week long course, comprised of five important modules to equip you with the skills and knowledge to survive an emergency at sea.  It is mandatory training for crew working on board commercial vessels over 24 meters in length, but strongly recommended to be taken by all Seafarers.

So why do your STCW at Seascope?

  • Standards
    We run our course to the highest standards in accordance with the regulations & stringent requirements of the MCA, and all our Instructors are highly trained professionals who make learning fun
  • Small Groups
    We keep our groups of students to small numbers to ensure each student gains maximum benefit from the tuition provided
  • Correct well maintained Equipment
    We provide our Students with the correct equipment and ensure they understand the correct usage.  For Personal Survival Techniques, each Student is provided with and taught how to don an Immersion Suit and Lifejacket. During Fire Prevention & Firefighting our Students are equipped with professional firefighting suits, helmets, shoes, gloves and properly maintained Breathing Apparatus.
  • Within the Area
    Our Fire facility is located at an Active Fire-Station in Contes.   This is beneficial to the Student in that valuable time is not wasted travelling to far away firegrounds and spent on your tuition instead.
    We have professionally trained Firefighters on hand to intervene in the event of an emergency.

 

What you will learn

STCW Basic Safety Training lasts one week and covers five modules.

They are Personal Safety & Social Responsibility (PSSR), Elementary First Aid (EFA), Personal Survival Techniques (PST), Fire prevention & Firefighting (FPFF), and Security Awaresness (SBS).

The course is largely classroom based, although there are two practicals, one for PST/Sea Survival and one for Fire.

For Personal Survival Techniques, we take you to the swimming pool where you will learn how to don a Survival Immersion suit and lifejacket.  You will learn how to swim in the  survival gear and also how to deploy and board a Survival Craft.
For the Fire practical we will take you to Contes in the idyllic countryside behind Nice.  It is a working Fireground with professional Firefighters and modern well-maintained fire equipment.
