Basic and Advanced Firefighting is a STCW 95 approved course designed around three days of theory in the classroom and two days of practical field training. During the first three days of theoretical lectures, you will gain knowledge of all elements of shipboard fire-fighting. Two days of fieldwork will put student theoretical knowledge to use fighting actual fires.
A trainee successfully completing this course will, in the event of a fire on board ship, be enabled to take command, organize the personnel effectively and control the firefighting operations, using those techniques in which he has been trained as well as be able to take part in firefighting operations if not an officer on board the vessel. The trainee will have knowledge on the theory and science of fire and will be knowledgeable in all methods of firefighting and firefighting equipment. They will also have acquired knowledge of fire prevention and an ability to inspect and maintain the fire-extinguishing systems and equipment.
Students are required to attend the Connecticut Fire Academy during this course. All students are responsible for their own transportation and reservations. Reservations are on a first-come first-served basis.
