The intention of this training is to enable students to maximise their chances of survival in the event of abandoning a ship. This course is a practical session where students will cover the correct donning of a lifejacket & use of an immersion suite, jump from height in to the water, swim while wearing a life jacket, right an inverted liferaft, keep afloat without a life jacket and board a survival craft from the water when wearing a life jacket.

After the STCW update your STCW will be valid for another 5 years
