Proficiency in Advanced Fire Fighting (STCW)

This course is part of the training for deck and engineering officers who wish to qualify for a Certificate of Competency and crew who are designated to control fire fighting operations.

It covers fire fighting procedures at sea and in port with particular emphasis on organisation, tactics and effective command including liaison with shore-based firefighters. It also covers topics such as ventilation control, hazards involving dangerous goods and the effects of fire fighting water on ship stability.

A variety of practical exercises involving fighting fires of different types and intensity are included. Students are assessed on their ability to successfully control fire fighting operations.

NOTE: Delegates undergoing fire fighting training will be required to complete and sign a confidential medical declaration to make us aware of any health problems, disabilities or injuries that we may need to take into account whilst attending this physically demanding course. It is therefore essential that delegates feel healthy and are physically fit to undertake such training.
