Why PDSD rather than PSA onboard a Superyacht? Security Duties or Security Awareness training.

Why PDSD rather than PSA onboard a Superyacht? Security Duties or Security Awareness training.

Working onboard a ISPS code compliant vessel, crew are often required to engage in some form of security duties as part of the ship’s security plan.  The Proficiency in Designated Securities (STCW A-VI/6-2) instead of Security Awareness (STCW A-VI/6-1) is recommended.

This will enhance your prospects of employment as well as career progression and not losing out on a chance to get hired (if you only have the Security Awareness certification, you may be minimizing your opportunities).

The UK MCA Approved Designated Security Duties (PDSD) Course for Superyacht Crew & Staff can be completed 100% online with the award winning company virsec.org  https://rb.gy/dpsrnc from the comfort of your own home, without the need to attend a test center.

Does a Superyacht required to be ISPS compliant? A Superyachy is considered as a passenger vessel (which is nothing to do with size or gross tonnage) if there is more than 12 passengers onboard (not including crew), paying or not, on charter, if the vessel is over 500GT then it must be ISPS compliant.
