Course Content of the STCW Security Awareness Training

Delegates that work at sea (aboard for instance a passenger ship or yacht) need maritime training to know the safety and social responsibility rules of the shipping protection plan. During our STCW Security Awareness course, they learn:

  • The meaning and consequence of various safety levels
  • Knowledge of shipping protection plan, procedures and precautions
  • Detect and recognize safety risks
  • Detect and recognize, in a non-discriminant way, the characteristics and behavioural patterns of persons that can threaten the safety.
  • Techniques that are used in order to circumvent safety precautions.
