Basic Fire Fighting is a 16 hour course where the trainee who successfully completes this class will be enabled to react in a correct manner in the event of an outbreak of fire, to take appropriate measures for the safety of personnel and of the ship, and to use the fire appliances correctly. The student will also be able to state and demonstrate that he/she has acquired knowledge and skills which, in some instances, will enable them to identify and correct defects and thus prevent fire from occurring.
One day is devoted to theory in classroom lecture, where the following day is field work. The one day of field work will present theoretical knowledge to use fighting actual fires.
On Friday during the Basic Firefighting, students will be attending the CT Fire Academy. They will be in charge of finding their own transportation.
