Security awareness training for seafarers

Security awareness training for seafarers is mandatory for all seafarers who are not directly assigned with security duties on board ISPS ships. All seafarers must receive approved security awareness training or instruction that can be conducted on board ship or ashore. This course aims to increase crew members’ awareness of security threats, how to maintain the security of the vessel and heighten their security awareness. Security awareness training for seafarers is offered online from training agency Rood Boven Groen. The STCW security awareness training takes half a day of your time in which you will learn how to be aware of danger on board. After successful completion of this course the participant will receive a STCW (A VI/6-1) certificate. This certificate is valid for life.
