STCW Refresher Course / Refresher Training  (authorized by BG Verkehr)


The Manila Agreement, which came into force on 01/01/2012, includes the implementation of regular STCW refresher courses. It is therefore necessary that every 5 years after the issue, the STCW courses such as basic safety training, proficiency in survival craft and rescue boats and advanced fire-fighting must be refreshed.

The extension of Certificates of Competency depends on the validity of the Documentary Evidences.

If possible, a STCW refresher course should include several safety courses such as basic safety, proficieny in survival craft and advanced fire fighting.

  • valid certificate of fitness for service at sea (Medical Certificate)
  • STCW certificates (certificates of proficiency)
