STCW - Maritime Training

El Camino College is proud to offer the U.S. Coast Guard approved courses that will give maritime personnel all the training components necessary for STCW certification. These standards require basic safety training of anyone who serves on a 200 Gross Registered Tonnage (GRT) or larger private vessel and/or works on a commercial vessel of 200 (GRT) or larger and is part of the required crew complement or is assigned a responsibility on the muster list. According to the regulations, this training must be completed before the individual can be assigned to duty. All personnel must be certified beginning 2/1/2002. A vessel that fails to comply with the new regulations may well be considered "un-seaworthy," should there be any litigation resulting from a casualty or injury or property loss or damage.

The components of the STCW certification training include personal safety and social responsibility, personal survival, elementary first aid and fire fighting. The STCW training programs are offered at the Business Training Center and at El Camino College's campus facilities.

Delivery of instruction is scheduled on a convenient and flexible basis. Call (310) 225-8277 or email mcisneros@elcamino.edu for more information.
