Only one month after the implementation of the new Dutch Ship Manning Act, Falck Safety Services is the first training institute in the Netherlands accredited to provide STCW refresher training.
The refresher training is offered in two variations: single refresher modules and refresher combi courses.
The single refresher modules are based on the initial training modules of the STCW training, but with less exhaustive content. Therefore the duration is shorter, only 1 or 2 days per module. All 4 modules, offered separately, add up to 7 days in total.
Seeing that it’s not desirable to occupy crew members with training for more than one week, the company has developed refresher combination courses.
In these refresher combi courses the various training elements are combined in a very efficient way making it possible to complete all four modules in less time.
In developing the training programmes Falck Safety Services has been consulted by and cooperating with various Dutch shipping companies, sector associations and interest groups to create programmes that fit the wishes and needs of the industry.
Both the single refresher module training and the refresher combi courses are officially approved by the Netherlands Shipping Inspectorate (ILT).
