Vessel Familiarisation

Seably 46 minutes

New crew members joining a ship must be familiarised with their duties and essential information about the ship. This ensures they understand their responsibilities thoroughly before commencing their duties. Proficiency and familiarisation are critical factors in preventing failures and safety hazards. Though all crew personnel joining the ship have to do STCW training, there are several specific instructions which are essential for safe operations on ships.

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