Latest STCW 2010 Refresher Courses Now Available

As of July 1st 2013, all STCW certificates have a maximum duration of five years. Holders of STCW certificates issued before July 1st 2013 must attend a refresher course to update their proficiency in maritime fire prevention and fire fighting by December 31st 2016 at the latest. If you have not attended an accredited training course by this date, your STCW certificate will expire.

We recommend you book onto one of our refresher courses as soon as possible, as demand for course places is likely to increase as the December 31st 2016 deadline for renewal approaches.
