The MCA Approved 1 day Fire Fighting course is a very useful, cost effective and more appropriate alternative course to the STCW Basic Fire Fighting 2-3 day course which is a requirement on vessels over 24m. It is a necessary course for those who fall under the following:
Workboat code (Edition 2) Skippers and mates of vessels under 15m
Boat Masters BML T1 and T2 – (all sizes not fitted with breathing apparatus)
Best practice training for code or pleasure vessel skippers and mates under 24m
Best practice training for offshore racing skippers and mates
The course provides a more suitable level of Fire Fighting for vessels under 24m which predominately use fire extinguishers and fixed engine room fire systems instead of breathing apparatus sets.
