Courses: Marine Industry - Gas Fuelled Vessel - Basic Training


Course Details:
Marine - Gas Fuelled Vessel- Basic Training is based on the requirements of Transport Canada and is in direct compliance with STCW95 Convention, Chapter V, Regulation A-V/3 & table A-V/3-1. This training is important for mariners to obtain endorsement for their licencing, allowing them to work aboard vessels operating on "Low Flashpoint Fuels" (as per IMO- IGF Code). Through classroom presentations, demonstrations and practical exercises learners will develop a basic understanding of the properties of LNG, both as a flammable liquid and as a gas, as well as practical firefighting skills. Learners will gain theoretical knowledge on the hazards associated with low flashpoint fuels aboard ships; learn procedures needed to operate the vessel's fuel systems; and acquire practical skills for fighting low flashpoint fuel fires and dealing with their accidental release.
