STCW-95 Course

A well run STCW-95 course with experienced trainers and fantastic ship realistic fire fighting facilities. I hope I never experience a real fire on a ship but if I do I know I am much better prepared for what it will be like working through small hot compartments. Great value for money with friendly and really helpful staff.

Who as a child didn't want to grow up to be a fireman (fire person)?!
I have just completed STCW PSSR/FPFF with Fire Aid. Anyone needing these qualifications should look here first. The pre-course information and directions were accurate, informative and uncluttered with the usual waffle. The training and support staff are all professionals in their field working across the globe. As for the practical fire will be tested! Gives you a real feel of what you will be up against should the worst happen. Total respect for those who do it for real. Enjoy the 'Ballet lessons' (Thanks Chris).
