Every seaman is trained in basic firefighting and is expected to pay constant attention to fire prevention, and to be capable of serving as an effective member of a fire response team. This is reflected in the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) that have been adopted by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and its member nations.
This training program is based on requirements set forth in Table VI of the STCW Code, as amended in 1995. Consisting of DVD training media, an audio-visual Test and a Workbook, the product offers training, testing and assessment features that comply with the International Safety Management (ISM) and STCW codes.
