STCW / USCG Approved Fire Fighting Courses

Marine Firefighting Courses Course Descriptions:

Students will learn how to react to the outbreak of fire, take appropriate measures for the safety of personnel and of the ship, and use firefighting appliances effectively.

Basic Firefighting (STCW):

The two day basic course consists of classroom lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on experience in the areas of fire chemistry, fire classification, prevention, protective clothing, portable extinguishers, breathing apparatus, fire behavior and attack, foam application, and advancing small hose lines. Students will experience live fire on both days of training. This course meets STCW95 and tankerman firefighting certificate requirements.
