Our two-and-a-half-day course is designed to provide seafarers with the knowledge and skills to prevent fires on board ships and respond to fire emergencies effectively. The course typically consists of theoretical and practical components, including classroom instruction, live fire drills, and hands-on training with fire-fighting equipment.

This is part of the mandatory STCW Basic Safety Training Course, required by all crew who work on commercial vessels.

The Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting course is physically demanding and requires a good level of fitness.

What our previous students have to say

I recently completed my training with flying fish. From booking the course all the way through to receiving my certificates the team made it an effortless process and were always on hand to help.


I completed the Superyacht Deckhand course with Flying Fish in January 2023 and I highly recommend anyone interested in starting a career in yachting do their training with Flying Fish.
