Standards of Training Certification and Watch keeping for Seafarers (STCW)

Premium International Yacht Training


The 1995 STCW Convention establishes a baseline standard for the training and education of seafarers throughout the world. By placing an emphasis on quality control and competence-based training, it establishes a structure that can ensure the required standard is met.

Although experience at sea remains an important part of a seafarers overall career development, it is no longer be enough to "serve your time."

In 2002, the International STCW 95 convention went into full effect. Since then, all seafarers must be trained in compliance with its provisions and carry certificates to that effect. Vessels are now subject to detention and seizure for non-compliance.
