Prerequisites: Updating training is to be undertaken by seafarers holding an advanced fire fighting certificate, or equivalent, and who have maintained the required standard of competence, by onboard training and experience every five years.

There is no pre-learning required but a good knowledge of the current arrangements on your ship would be advantageous.

Please note: This course does not remove the obligation for holders to update their Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting Certificate every five years.

Delegates will be assessed throughout the course with a short written exam to kickstart the session.
