Any applicant who has successfully completed our 32-hour Advanced Fire Fighting course will satisfy the Advanced Fire Fighting training requirements of Section A-VI/3 and Table A-VI/3 of the STCW Code and 46 CFR 11/202(b)(2); and the Advanced Fire fighting training requirements of 46 CFR 11.205(d) and 11.401(g)(1) for a license.

What to bring:

When you take this course you will need to be prepared with some basic items: 1. For fire fighting we recommend levis/sweatpants and a t-shirt to wear under the bunker gear (synthetic clothing, tank tops and/or shorts are not recommended). A change of clothes is also recommended. A tight seal on the facemask is a must and a requirement for participation. Bring a sack lunch and water.

Overall the course was excellent! It is tough to find anything to improve with your courses!
