STCW Designated Security Duties

The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (or STCW), 1995 sets qualification standards for masters, officers and watch personnal on seagoing merchant ships.

 

The STCW 95 course and modules form part of the statutory requirements for both deck and engineering qualification. It is a globally recognised qualification for working afloat on fishing vessels over 24m and on merchant vessels of over 500GT.

 

Here at NMCI Services we offer a range of STCW '95 and Non STCW '95 professional short courses for the maritime sector. We are also delighted to announce that we are now offering STCW Refresher Training.
