STCW Basic Safety Training focuses on basic safety skills and knowledge in order to provide a framework for safe working practices, emergency procedures and teamwork within the maritime environment.

This course is considered a minimum entry requirement for anyone who wishes to work on yachts or in commercial sector of the maritime industry. It is engaging, challenging and most of all fun! However what you learn during the STCW basic training, could save your own life or that of a crew mate or guest.

STCW stands for the “Standards of Training and Certification of Watchkeeping” as determined by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The STCW Basic Safety Training course is mandated by ALL flag States for all working seafarers. It is the international standard, approved by MCA, USCG, the Marshall Islands Registry and nearly every leading flag state in the world.

In 2010, the STCW convention was reviewed and ultimately added Security to the basic certification requirement. Bluewater Crew Training in Fort Lauderdale now offers the Security with Designated Duties module on the Saturday following the STCW Basic Safety Training week.

This course is free with your ONE Account.

PDSD is a great addition to your CV and will be required if you are looking to work on a commercial vessel over 500gt and have a security duty.
We do recommend that crew take this course as it is very much in demand onboard.
PDSD can be completed on the Saturday following your STCW course.
