About the course

This course is designed for any crew member involved in the security of the vessel under the ships security plan.

If you have designated security duties under the Ship Security Plan, you must undertake approved training in designated security duties. This training must meet the requirements of Section A-VI, paragraphs 6-8, of the STCW Code and would lead to issue of a Certificate of Proficiency in Designated Security Duties.

STCW 2010 requires all seafarers to receive basic safety training in accordance with section A-VI/1 of the STCW Code.

The PDSD course is an additional module that can be added to the Basic Safety Training course, for those members of the crew that require it.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PSA AND PDSD?

Proficiency in Security Awareness (PSA) is a requirement for almost every crew member on board a vessel, it is part of the Basic Safety Training program within STCW 10.

Proficiency in Designated Security Duties (PDSD) is a requirement for the crew who may have specific security duties while onboard e.g. permitting access to the yacht (letting people onboard). These security duties will be outlined in the Ship’s Security Plan on vessels who are compliant with the ISPS code.
