Using our purpose built facility we replicate conditions on-board which require students to extinguish fires and rescue casualties using breathing apparatus and fire fighting equipment. This course will provide all the basics, from fire prevention and firefighting skills to the causes of fires aboard ship, and how to deal with them both safely and efficiently.

There are 3 outcomes to the training; Outcome 1: The learner understands and can minimise the risk of fire on board. Outcome 2: The learner knows the on board equipment, procedures and personal safety requirements in fire situations. Outcome 3: The learner is able to fight and extinguish fires.
