It's likely been five years since you took BT, and hopefully you haven't had to fight a real fire, abandon ship, or give CPR. This course presents a great opportunity to re-experience critical training and relearn some things you may have forgotten.
Our 3-day STCW Basic Training Refresher is for those mariners who have previously taken the 5-day Basic Training and cannot document 360 days in the last 5 years. 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.
