WHAT IS STCW
Find out more about what STCW
training really involves.
THE STCW EXPLAINED
A career, gap year or season working in the marine industry can be
exciting, rewarding and life-changing - but it is not without risks.
The STCW is a stand-alone qualification, but it can be combined with
other courses, depending on your plans and desired level of training. The
qualification is recognised worldwide and designed to help keep you –
and everyone else on board – safe and secure.
The STCW 95 Basic Safety Training is the formal name for the STCW.
This is an essential piece of kit for all crew or personnel providing direct
service to passengers on passenger carrying vessels measuring over 24
“I was extremely impressed with the guys who
trained us. I shall be definitely recommending you to
other people for their courses in the future!”
What Does It Involve?
The course is comprised of basic safety training which prepares you for
emergency procedures, including:
Personal Survival Techniques
Fire Fighting and Fire Prevention
Elementary First Aid
Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities
WHY IS THE STCW
Read on to find out why you the
STCW is so important to maritime
WHY IS THE STCW SO IMPORTANT?
STCW courses are taught
through a combination of
theory and practice, giving
you real scenario training
in a variety of crisis
Life at sea is many things, but it
is never dull! The STCW will
leave you with a good
understanding of how to deal
with emergencies, should they
occur during your time on board.
The qualification helps reassure
employers and crucially, gives
you the skills needed to keep
yourself, fellow crew and
passengers safe from harm.
WORKING ON A SUPERYACHT WITH
The STCW helps prepare you for
working on a superyacht – an
exciting career option for those
eager to truly stretch their sealegs.
There are estimated to be over
5,000 superyachts worldwide,
each one needing a crew; some
of the largest superyachts rely on
a crew of up to 70 people. This
gives plenty of opportunity for
eager budding crew members to
take advantage of the many
particularly as interior and deck
The only requirement for crew on
a superyacht is the STCW95
Basic Safety Training (see page
___) – however it is worth
remembering that superyacht
jobs are highly competitive, and
gaining the advantage over the
competition with superior
training is certainly advisable
depending on the career path
you want to pursue.
“I liked the sound of travelling, meeting
new people and saving money at the same
time in some great locations! One of the
best aspects is time off in-between
charters. We always go to a beach bar,
have a good time there all day and then
find a restaurant in the evening. Maybe go
out after dinner to see the nightlife.
Basically I'm loving it!”
- William Hodder
