It's likely been five years since you took BST, and hopefully you haven't had to fight a real fire, abandon ship, or give CPR. This course presents a great opportunity to reexperience critical training and relearn some things you may have forgotten.
Our 3-day STCW Basic Safety Training Refresher is for those mariners who have previously taken the 5-day Basic Safety Training and require its renewal for their credential. (Note: BST can be renewed without this class if a mariner can prove to the USCG that they have 360 days of sea time sailing beyond the boundary line during the last 5 years. If you meet this requirement, then a two-day revalidation course will satisfy the renewal. As always, The USCG will determine which course you need, so your best course of action if unsure is to contact The National Maritime Center.
- Basic Firefighting
- Personal Survival
- First Aid & CPR
What to bring
You need to have some basic items to be prepared for this course. For firefighting, we recommend levis/sweatpants and a t-shirt to wear under the bunker gear. Synthetic clothing, tank tops, and shorts are not recommended. A change of clothes is also recommended. A tight seal on the face mask is a must and a requirement for participation. In the pool, you will need to wear swim shorts/shorts (no speedos or bikinis) and a t-shirt at all times. Remember to bring a towel too!
Compass Courses’ passion is to provide current and future seafarers with the knowledge, understanding, and proficiencies they need to be successful and safe through quality training on a reliable schedule.
