IGF - Basic Training

Seably 1 hour and 16 minutes

The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the IGF Code. We will follow the fuel's way through the ship. From bunkering to storage and finally, through the fuel system, you will also learn about managing potential risks.

The natural gas is cooled to –162° C, to enable efficient transportation and storage. When reaching this temperature, it changes state from gas to liquid and is referred to as LNG. Cooling it down reduces the space required by the gas 600 times.

The goals of this course are to provide you with a basic understanding of the fuel and fuel systems, risks associated with ship operations, risk management, safe routines, and firefighting theory. We will also talk about the handling of leakage, spills, and ventilation of fuels.

When completing the course, you'll earn a proof of training and can apply for a Basic Training Certificate according to STCW Code A-V3.1 from the Swedish Transport Agency. Before taking this course, you should have basic competence in fire prevention and fire fighting according to the STCW Code A-VI /1-2.
