Updated Proficiency in Advanced Fire Fighting

About this course

Under the new STCW 2010 requirements for training and certification, holders of an advanced fire fighting certificate will require updated proficiency training in advanced fire fighting every five years.

This one day classroom based course involves group work. The content is focused on controlling fire fighting operations on board ship, organising and training fire parties, fixed systems and fire investigations.

Please note: this course does not remove the obligation for holders to update their fire prevention and fire fighting certificate every five years.
