Course Description
Flying Fish is approved by the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) to deliver the four elements of STCW 95 Basic Safety Training.

If you want to work on a superyacht as interior or deck crew, these are the minimum qualifications you need. If you aim to become a professional skipper they are an essential part of your training.

Basic Safety Training consists of four shourt courses:

1. STCW 95 Personal Survival Techniques - sometimes described as 'Sea Survival' - Survival suits, hypothermia, life rafts, basic actions in emergency, etc.

2. STCW 95 Elementary First Aid - Basic, immediate, and emergency response to the most common shipboard injury emergencies, including CPR.

3. STCW 95 Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting - Types and classes of fires, prevention, hazard awareness, methods of fire extinguishment, structure of incident response team, appropriate equipment, personal safety, team support, and live exercises.

4. STCW 95 Personal Safety & Social Responsibilities (PSSR) - Types of shipboard emergencies, alarms and signals, initial actions, personal/protective safety equipment, effects of pollution, pollution prevention, safe working practices, enclosed spaces, accident prevention, sexual harassment, individual rights, drug and alcohol awareness, and prevention of abuse.

You will leave the course with a good understanding of safety and emergency procedures. You will be familiar with rescue and evacuation. You will have practised crisis scenarios, handled fire fighting equipment and launched a life raft. You will have a thorough understanding of how to perform as a professional mariner.

The course takes place at Cowes, Isle of Wight, yachting capital of England. You stay in comfortable, waterside accommodation at Point Cottages.
