  • STCW Security Awareness Course

    I know the new STCW 2010 security awareness has come into force.

    I am slightly concerned that I am cadet currently on a UK registered ship and don't have it and don't have any onboard training program for it.

    I asked my training manager in December as this is when I first heard about it, and he didn't seem to know about it and told me not to worry about it.

    Will the sea time I'm currently gaining become invalid if I don't have the STCW.

    Any help is much appreciated.

      Erm, Chris. Pretty sure you have to have it before joining any ship after 1st January, not just when you revalidate (happy to be corrected on this if it's wrong)

      I filled in a multiple choice quiz thing which has been sent off to the Singapore MPA which will hopefully get me a nice shiny certificate, we shall see.

      Not sure if cadets have to have it or not?
      Go out, do stuff

        For cadets it's supposed to be put into the course somewhere, and yes from jan 1st all have to have it
        Trust me I'm a Chief.

        Views expressed by me are mine and mine alone.
        Yes I work for the big blue canoe company.
        No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

          Do you guys have any form of CBT on board because I know VOD and Seagull have small courses for it that should take about an hour or two to complete....
          I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

            MIN 472 Applies to this. From what I understand you only need this for vessels over 500gt and engaged on International Voyages ?

              Hi this is OP

              There is no form of CBT on board and all the crew have done the course.

              I'm just concerned that my seatime won't count, if I wasn't meant to be onboard in the first place.

              I did join the vessel before the 1 jan, I don't know if this helps.

              Think I will have to try my training manager again, hopefully he is more aware of it now.

              Thanks for all the advice and any further advice is much appreciated.

                I humbly apologise, I just have reread the regs! Normally I'm on the ball with the regs but this time not!

                  the seagull training takes ages, there is a workbook to accompany the cbts.
