We offer a suite of refresher courses for holders of STCW Certificates of Competency and/or STCW Certificates of Proficiency.

Whether you are a Master, Mate, Deck Officer, Marine Engineer Officer or Able Seafarer, we can provide refresher training to meet your needs.

Our STCW refresher courses are bundled together for your convenience. So if you need STCW PISC and STCW Advanced Fire refreshers, you will find that they are conveniently timetabled one after the other.

If you also need a Fast Rescue Boat refresher, we offer a limited number of these, which are also timetabled together with the PISC/Fire refresher dates.
