Personal Survival

Modern ships are extraordinarily seaworthy craft, built to exacting standards of construction and outfitted with technology worthy of the Starship Enterprise. Even the best ships can capsize or sink with terrifying speed, however, and equipment is only as good as the men and women who operate it.

These realities are reflected in the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) that have been adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and its member nations. Competence in Personal Survival is one of four core elements of the Basic Safety Training that all ships are now required to provide, and all seamen are obligated to achieve.

Using this Product

Using this Product

Crewmembers should be assigned to watch Personal Survival, Parts 1, 2 & 3, and then view the audio-visual test while recording their answers to the test questions.

Answer sheets and Certificates of Completion should be signed by each crewmember, his or her supervisor and by the captain, and maintained with crew records. Crewmembers are encouraged to keep copies of the Certificate of Completion with their personal records as well.

Photocopy master versions of the answer sheet and Certificate of Completion can be found in the back of the Workbook. Remove these pages and create as many copies as you require. You also have the option of removing the answer sheet at the back of the Workbook before it is issued to crew personnel. DVD-Video
