WHAT IS STCW 95?
STCW stands for: Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, it was ratified by the IMO in 1995. The basic entry level certification is abbreviated within the industry to Basic STCW 95 and comprises four modules:
First Aid & CPR
Personal Safety & Social Responsibility
The course will take one week to complete. All modules must be completed to obtain the license. Any previous certificates you have, e.g. First Aid, will not be credited towards your Basic STCW 95. Once you are STCW certified not only will you be a more qualified candidate, you will also confirm to employers that you are serious about this industry.
