Professional Award in Maritime Firefighting
It is estimated that every year in UK waters alone, nearly 100 vessels are damaged or destroyed by fire. If you have a coastline or any waterways within your response area, then as a fire service you have a responsibility for maritime fire incidents within that area.
Our 5-day Level 4 Professional Award in Maritime Firefighting...
...is a Level 4, 60-hour qualification (including 10 hours of e-learning and 10 hours portfolio completion). This course facilitates the National Occupational Standards EFSM2 – Lead, Monitor and Support people to resolve operational incidents at a strategic level. There will be a practical maritime ICS assessment on days 4 & 5.
The course provides students with knowledge...
...and understanding through classroom-based learning, demonstration, practical exercises and simulation, in essential aspects of Marine Fire Fighting Incident Command. It is designed for staff who may have a role being Incident Commander of an incident on board a vessel which may be alongside, at sea or on other waterways.
These courses are delivered from our Maritime Academy in Plymouth...
...here we have access to a 3-storey fire house complete with ships hatches, vertical ladders and watertight doors. We also have access to Plymouth Dockyard; we utilise this for ship visits/risk assessment training.
We can also deliver an unaccredited version of the course (theory only, no practical) at any location worldwide.
