STCW Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting
" The fire fighting course is great with realistic training methods "
This 2.5 day course covers the precautions to be taken to minimise the risk of fire on board a ship, the causes of fires and the first means of extinguishing them. Includes theory and training in the practical use of fire extinguishers, hoses and other fire fighting equipment.
It also covers the use of breathing apparatus for fire fighting and rescue purposes. Live fire training is undertaken.
You will develop knowledge, understanding and practical competence where appropriate in:
- Theory of combustion
- Extinguishing methods, starvation; smothering; cooling
- Course of action when discovering a fire
- Classification of fires
- Fire Prevention; safe practice; fire consciousness; good housekeeping
- Fire fighting equipment; fire extinguishers; foam equipment and systems; fire detection and extinguishing systems; breathing apparatus
This course contains some physical exercises during the practical sessions which some may find demanding. Any candidate unsure of their fitness or suitability for such activities should consult their doctor. The practical element of the course requires delegates to wear breathing apparatus and to enter a darkened space in order to carry out search and rescue, and firefighting. Can you meet these requirements?
There is continual assessment throughout the course via oral questioning and practical demonstration and participation. Successful candidates will be awarded the STCW Certificate in Basic Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting on the day.
