STCW'95 Training News (2)
We use the dive pool at the Plymouth Life Centre, as used for training by local olympic diver Tom Daley. During this session you will carry out a practical wet drill, including liferaft launching, boarding dry and wet, jumping from the poolside and diving board, methods to increase chances of survival once in the water, helping injured persons, raft capsize drill and final abandonment exercises.
New updating training course requirements are being introduced for all STCW certificate holders to comply with STCW 2010 requirements. The following courses that WMT run are subject to updated training:
• Updated Proficiency in Personal Survival Techniques
• Updated Proficiency in Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting
Under the new regulations, updated proficiency training for the above courses has to be undertaken every five years. Seafarers revalidating their UK Certification of Competency after 1 January 2017 will be required to submit documentary evidence of having completed MCA approved updated proficiency training with the last five years.
