What are the basic STCW safety training courses?

Question:
What are the basic STCW safety training courses?
Answer:

There are five basic training modules that every person working at sea is required to complete before they can be employed on a UK-registered vessel (Personal Survival Techniques, Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities, Elementary First Aid, Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting and Proficiency in Security Awareness). This is a mandatory safety requirement and more advanced versions of these modules will have to be completed as your career progresses.  Warsash offers the mandatory basic STCW safety training courses as a Basic Safety Training Week.
