STCW Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting Update – 2 days
The 2010 Manila amendments to the STCW convention require the holders of Basic Safety Training certificates to to undertake refresher training in fire prevention and fire fighting every five years.
This is a practical training course to update you in the use of fire extinguishers, fire hoses and breathing apparatus.
From 1 January 2017 Basic Safety Training certificates that are more than five years old will be invalid unless supported by a Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting Update and a Personal Survival Training Update.
When to update?
Although you don't need to update until the end of 2016, we say don't leave it until the last minute.
These courses will be very heavily booked as the deadline approaches.
Flying Fish in Cowes
The course takes place at Cowes, Isle of Wight, yachting capital of England. Overnight accommodation is available in our waterside Point Cottages between the two days of the course.
