Vessel Familiarisation

Seably 39 minutes

New crew members joining a ship must be familiarized with their duties and important information about the ship. This is to ensure that they understand their responsibilities thoroughly before commencing their duties. Proficiency and familiarisation are the key factors in the prevention of failures and safety hazards. Though all crew personnel joining the ship have to do STCW training, there are several specific instructions, which are important for safe operations on ships.

Upon completion of this course, the candidate will understand the importance of adequate training and familiarization onboard focusing on the correct procedures and guidelines set up in the work environment onboard ships.
