Colossal delivers the four elements of STCW Basic Safety Training as a one week training course. Each of the four modules can also be attended individually if required. Colossal is approved as a training provider by the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA). There are no formal educational requirements to undertake this course, although all participates must be over 16 years of age. Some aspects of this course are physically demanding. We therefore require all students to complete a physical declaration form.
You will leave with a good understanding of safety and emergency procedures. You will be familiar with rescue and evacuation. You will have performed crisis scenarios, handled fire-fighting equipment and learnt how to launch a life raft. This course is the minimum level of qualification for those intending to work at sea.
