    The shipping business is a business which operates day and night, 7 days a week. As a result, the level of work pressure is high and this entails risks that are higher than when you work on the mainland. In order to guarantee safety, it is of great importance that you are in possession of STCW certificates. To be able to work in the maritime sector, you must at least have the STCW Basic Safety Training in your possession so you can indicate that you know how to work safely. After you’ve followed your STCW Basic Safety Training, you can also follow other maritime training courses.

    If you opt for a maritime security training at FMTC Safety, you will know for sure that you have obtained the correct and most recent certificate. This way you know your certificate is correct when you get checked. Checking the STCW guidelines is done by the individual governments, in the Netherlands this is done by the ministry of Infrastructuur, Living environment and Transportation. With the certificate of your maritime training, you can indicate in not only the Netherlands, but worldwide that you’re allowed to work in the maritime sector.
