STCW 2010

Your passport to the superyacht industry

In order to work in the super yacht industry all crew are required to hold STCW 2010 (Standards for Certification and Watchkeeping) MCA approved qualifications, which were developed by the International Maritime Organisation to provide a consistent standard of training for all seafarers.

STCW 2010 consists of 4 basic modules which can be taken in a block or individually:

A one day module that gives the candidate knowledge of essential survival techniques. It includes both theoretical and practical sessions and investigates life threatening incidents at sea and use of survival equipment. The practical session includes the launch of a life raft and entry to the water dressed in survival suits.
This is a three day module that deals with the precautions to be taken to minimise the risk of fires aboard ship, the way in which fires are caused and the first means of extinguishing them. Practical training in the use of fire fighting equipment and breathing apparatus is included.
One day of basic First Aid including a mixture of theory and practical sessions and life saving skills.
This one day module gives basic induction training in safety procedures and accident prevention and familiarises new seafarers with employment and working conditions aboard ship.
