WHERE IS THE STCW 2010 PERSONAL SURVIVAL TECHNIQUES TRAINING TAKING PLACE?
The STCW 2010 Personal Survival Techniques course is a combination of theory in the classroom and practical Sea Survival Training. For the practical training we do not use a swimming pool but our 2 training vessels and anchor in the lagoon. This creates an excellent forum for practical sea survival and meet the IMO requirements for STCW Personal Survival techniques. The provision of a demountable Aluminium platform not less than 2 metres bolted to the stern of “MY Pearl” gives the students the feeling for a real emergency situation at sea.
I CAN'T SWIM, CAN I ATTEND THE STCW PERSONAL SURVIVAL TECHNIQUES TRAINING MODULE?
Yes, non Swimmers may participate but must complete all the practical exercises wearing a life jacket. We have 4 instructors on 2 vessels always on alert during the entire PST practical training activities.
