Overviews: The STCW 2010 Manila amendments require the Proficiency in Fast Rescue Boats course to be updated every 5 years. This half day training is for those seafarers who hold a proficiency in fast rescue boats certificate and have maintained the required standard of competency by on-board training and experience. They are required to complete a ‘self-declaration’ to show that they have maintained their knowledge and skill in all competencies listed in the self-declaration form which can be obtained from course administrators. Seafarers must sign the self-declaration form as a pre-requisite to the reduced hours entry route of the MCA approved updating course.

Registration for this course is not yet open. Check back soon for updates.
