CERTIFICATE OF SAFETY TRAINING (STCW95/10) - BASIC SAFETY TRAINING (BST)

 

SAFETY OF LIFE AT SEA (SOLAS)

 

Welcome to the maritime industry, where trying to navigate the maze of courses and the regulatory structure can be daunting. For new seafarers or seamen’s with little or no exposure to work on board a sea-going vessel, it is critical to understand what is beneficial to accomplish during training.

 

First and foremost is SAFETY. New seafarers need to understand how to work and live safely in the new environment. Second, they need to build a solid foundation for future training, experience, work and career. No training course can be designed to teach everything; each is a building block to the next. It is up to crew to build on this foundation.

 

Finally, from a practical standpoint, the seafarers need the certificates required to work on board of a sea going vessel. The seafarers need to be safe and readily employable.

 

With these points in mind, a seafarer should ask, “Do I want access to all the ships in our industry or just some of them?” Part of the secret of success is to have qualifications that allow work on as many ships as possible. The more qualifications a seafarer have, the higher the likelihood that they will be employed.

 

Where do new seafarer start?

Our training college should help guide new seafarers to the right training and give appropriate career advice to be safe and marketable.

Step one is to complete STCW basic training.

This includes PSSR (Personal Safety & Social Responsibility), BST (Basic Survival Techniques), Basic Fire Fighting, and First Aid/CPR.

Seafarers should also take a security course right away. Security Awareness, and Security Awareness with Designated Security Duties.

Next, crew should get “BASIC SEMANSHIP TRAINING COURSE” –

General Purpose (GP) – Deck and Engine – Rating Grade II.

 

If new seafarers are serious about a deck job on a ship, or even a lifetime of opportunity in the shipping industry, no matter how much or little experience they have, it’s always important for crew to build their resume in order to help keep their career on course.
