This is not an STCW95 course but has been created by the MCA specifically to address the need under the STCW convention, for certificated officers to be trained in the operation of survival craft. The STCW "CPSC&RB" can be used in place of this course if desired. As yachts usually do not carry lifeboats this element has been removed from the course.
Assessment The course is assessed in 4 ways: classroom question and answer sessions, short written examination, practical sea assessment in our training yacht, short presentation to the class, researching the information from the publications provided
We strongly advise that you obtain your ENG1 medical certificate before you undertake the course if you have a medical condition which you think might preclude you from working on a yacht, NOTE: PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM JANUARY 1ST 2017 YOUR EDH CERTIFICATE MUST HAVE BEEN ISSUED AT LEAST 18 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ISSUE OF YOUR CERTIFICATE OF COMPETENCY
