Whitby Offshore Training Centre to provide fire fighting courses

Whitby Fishing Industry Training Centre will play an important part in improving safety for seafarers in the delivery of STCW’95 safety courses.

Whitby Fishing Industry Training School and the company’s rapidly-expanding offshore training arm ‘54 North Maritime Training’  will play a vital role in delivering the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW’95) courses.


The company is a multi-award-winning organisation and an approved training provider for the MCA and the Sea Fish Industry Authority and will deliver a 5-day set of STCW courses to include Personal Survival Techniques, Personal Safety & Social Responsibilities (PSSR), Elementary First Aid and the 2½ day Fire Prevention & Firefighting course.


The firefighting course is a mandatory requirement for crew members on vessels of more than 24 metres, and required by many of the Offshore Wind companies regardless of size of vessels.
