Compass Sea School Ltd is an approved Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) training centre for the delivery of STCW Basic Safety Training.
The Standard of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) code requires all seafarers to receive familiarisation and basic safety training or instruction in accordance with section A-VI/1. Awareness of safety procedures, the safety equipment available, employment conditions and the working environment on board a merchant vessel are all covered in this training.
Our centre provides all of the 4 modules for the STCW scheme: Personal Survival Techniques (PST), Personal Safety and Social Responsibility (PSSR) Elementary First Aid (EFA) and Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting (FPFF) training.
Candidates must be at least 18 years of age.
You will need to provide photographic evidence on arrival at the course. The photographic identification must be a valid Passport.
All Merchant Navy personnel (which includes pre-Merchant Navy Students) must hold a valid ENG1 Medical Certificate.
Please note that there are practical elements on certain training modules that contain some physically demanding exercises. Any candidate unsure of their health and fitness as to their ability to participate in such activities should consult their doctor.
