STCW Educational Training

All contracting parties must abide by the basic minimum standards for training, certification, and watchkeeping for seafarers as set forth in the STCW Convention and its Code (including the 2010 Manila revisions).

The minimum required standards of instruction, certification, and watchkeeping for officers and ratings must be enforced globally given that maritime activity is not restricted to one state’s borders but rather extends well beyond them on an international basis.

Our Training Center provides STCW-approved training programs and guarantees STCW compliance to those who hold the necessary credentials.


Participants in the Basic Safety Training course will be able to comprehend the risks and hazards of being on board a ship and how to respond appropriately in an emergency.

On board passenger ships, the candidates will receive training in safety training, crowd management, crisis management, human behavior and passenger safety, cargo safety, and hull integrity.

After successfully completing this course, a candidate will be able to operate the GMDSS subsystems effectively, meet the functional criteria of GMDSS, and offer radio services in an emergency. Training will also be provided in methods to prevent the unintentional transmission of false distress alerts by using the most recent and modern edition of WARTSILA TGS Simulator, given the issues being experienced in the GMDSS as a result of the large number of false distress alerts that occasionally occur.

In this course, candidates learn the fundamentals required to comprehend system configuration, principles, shipborne marine radar performance, the factors affecting radar performance, how radar information is obtained, displayed, and analysed, the limitations and accuracy of that information, the correct use of operational controls to obtain an optimal display, and use radar information for decision making while maintaining safety. The most recent and cutting-edge WARTSILA NTPRO Simulator is employed for this purpose.

This course offers instruction in the use of electronic chart display and information systems, including knowledge, skill, and comprehension (ECDIS). Exercises are carried out using the most recent and cutting-edge version of WARTSILA, which will assist in establishing and maintaining an ECDIS display, planning and monitoring a route, using fundamental navigational equipment and functions in a real-time navigational environment, activating updates, and carrying out the proper actions required to navigate vessels safely.

This training program is intended for employees who have specific responsibility for cargo or equipment on chemical or oil tankers. The safety of chemical and oil tankers, prevention of fires, operational procedures, and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements are the main topics of this course.

This training is intended for staff members who have special responsibilities for the loading, unloading, care during transit, or handling of cargo on oil tankers. Oil tanker safety, fire safety precautions, pollution prevention, operational procedures, and duties under relevant laws and regulations are the main topics of the course.

This course is intended for staff members who have immediate responsibility for cargo-related loading, unloading, care in transit, and handling operations aboard chemical tankers.

Officers and ratings will receive training from this session. It includes a fundamental training curriculum suited to their responsibilities for the safety of liquefied gas tankers, cargo safety systems, pollution prevention, safe operational procedures, and obligations under applicable laws and regulations.

The majority of maritime mishaps, including collisions, groundings, and allusions, might be prevented if good BTM/BRM principles were efficiently implemented, which is the perspective from which this course is approached. Our most recent WARTSILA NTPRO Full Mission Bridge Simulation allows bridge officers to construct scenarios that they can employ in actual future situations while taking place in a virtual but overly realistic setting. They will realize what skills and behaviors are necessary to build an effective bridge team, including communication, situation awareness, error detection, decision making, and consistent application of the principles of good BTM/BRM through effective leadership and communication. They will also understand how to manage all available resources and work together as a team.

The goal of the course is to help Masters and Deck Officers advance their current understanding of ship behavior and handling in a variety of operational circumstances. The theory will go through fundamental ideas, guidelines for ship handling, as well as directions for using ship maneuvering equipment. Using the most up-to-date and most recent version of WARTSILA NTPRO Full Mission Bridge Simulator and four additional Bridge Simulators in open and confined waters with a choice of 50 geographical areas and 50 own ships, with an unlimited number of target ships, practical navigational ship handling scenarios are performed.

The purpose of this course is to impart knowledge and skills pertaining to the control, supervision, and monitoring of the safe operation of a ship’s machinery plant. The candidates will most importantly be able to become familiar with the instruments and controls used in the engine rooms of contemporary merchant ships, as well as understand the importance of proper pre-planning, the use of checklists, and the length of time required to start up propulsion plant machinery. Additionally, they will learn how to spot operational issues and troubleshoot them, improving their capacity to make choices that advance safety. We’ll use the most recent and cutting-edge WARTSILA ERS TechSim version to illustrate practical exercises.

The purpose of this course is to give mariners who are in charge of the safe control and management of high voltage power systems the necessary education and training in high voltage installations, managing troubleshooting, and restoring electrical equipment to proper operational conditions.

The training covers the skills and tactics for leadership that are relevant to professional seafarers. Academic writings and “real life” experiences of people who have held leadership positions and are accountable for the success of the company as well as the success of the people who work for and support the organization are reflected in the course content and presentations. The training also teaches communication methods and abilities that support and strengthen the individual’s attempts to succeed as a leader.

The STCW Ship Security Officer (SSO) program is designed for seafarers who work on board ships and need to be certified in order to hold a position as a ship security officer. The Ship Security Officer (SSO) course is made to make sure that the ship is secure and that the ship security plan is followed and supported.

Anyone who works at sea and has not been tasked with carrying out the protection tasks outlined in the maritime protection plan is eligible for the STCW Security Awareness (SA) training. After completing the STCW Security Awareness training, these individuals must earn the STCW Security Awareness certificate.

With the exception of the Ship Security Officer, who is in charge of certain safety duties, the STCW Designated Security Duties course (DSD) is intended for all maritime professionals. The participant will be capable of performing assigned and particular procedures after completing the STCW Designated Security training.
