Introduction to STCW 2010 Training

The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (otherwise known as STCW) are legally binding for signatory countries. The convention gives minimum legal standards for qualifications and training at sea; in short, Captains, officers, watchkeepers, and crew must all complete differing levels of MCA/STCW training.

Overseen by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), STCW was originally ratified in 1978 but major amendments were agreed in 1995 (STCW ’95). Further major revisions to the STCW Convention were subsequently adopted by IMO in Manila in June 2010 to ensure that the necessary global standards are in place to train and certify seafarers to operate technologically advanced ships.

Known as ‘The Manila amendments to the STCW Convention and Code’, these amendments came into force on 1 January 2012, with the new STCW 2010 training and certification requirements being adopted from July 2013.

In conjunction with our partner organisations, ChartCo Training & Consultancy is pleased to offer all STCW 2010 training courses required under the Standards of Training & Certification of Watchkeepers (STCW) Convention.
