Hope everyone one of you is aware of the new regulation related to security training for seafarers as per STCW-10.As per the circular issued by DG shipping any level of ships crew from trainee seaman to master should have proficiency in security training meant for seafarers with designated security duties and have certification to the same.Those who are currently on board have a deadline till December 2014 while those who newly join wouldnt be given any relaxation. There is a rumble going on in Mumbai as most of the mariners were informed of it only in the eleventh hour and almost all the centers are booked for a month at least.Some companies do provide it to their crew while some prominent players have kept away from it.
