It includes both theoretical and practical sessions, investigating causes of distress; knowledge and use of equipment; launch and recovery of life rafts; preparation for survival; personal survival skills; and use of search and rescue organisations.
This course also provides real knowledge and expertise from experienced maritime trainers, with very broad operational experience.
STCW'95 PST is one of the four compulsory modules required for employment on all commercial vessels, fishing boats and ‘super yachts’ over 24 metres in length.
This course allows students to access the skills and delivery that we have acquired from decades of operational experience in operational maritime tasks, and training delivery.
