STCW Advanced Fire Fighting Refresher (AFF Refresher)
Pre-requisite : Updating training is to be undertaken by seafarers holding an advanced fire fighting certificate, or equivalent, and who have maintained the required standard of competence, by onboard training and experience, for all competencies listed in the self-declaration form. (This form is distributed by the training provider) Seafarers must sign the self-declaration form as a pre-requisite to the reduced hours entry route of the MCA approved updating course.
When the training and experience has not been carried out onboard, and no self declaration form has been signed, the full updating training requirements must be undertaken. This means that there are 2 routes for advanced fire fighting updating training.
Please note: this course does not remove the obligation for holders to update their fire prevention and fire fighting certificate every five years.
