Annex E                 Advanced firefighting updating training self declaration form

This document provides the criteria for the development of courses to deliver training in fire prevention and firefighting (FP&FF) and advanced firefighting (AFF), along with the updating training requirements for both FP&FF and AFF. It also includes the tanker firefighting requirements, in accordance with international regulations for seafarer training.

The specifications described in this document have been developed by the Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) in conjunction with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

The MCA has agreed with the MNTB that the specifications described in this document will satisfy the requirements for approved training. Conditions for MCA approval of short courses are contained in Annex A, which should be used in conjunction with the MCA guide to approval of regulatory training requirements.

With regard to updating training, the learning outcomes required for the fire prevention and firefighting and advanced firefighting updating course is a subset of those required for the full courses. It has therefore been agreed that Training Centres that hold current MCA approval (ie have completed MCA initial or re-approval within the last 5 years) to deliver the full programme and use the same personnel, need only submit course material for the desk assessment, and additional QA procedures if required, to gain approval to deliver this updating course. The updating course approval will be limited to the same re-approval date as the full course approval. Training Centres wanting approval to deliver updating courses should approach the Marine Office which granted the approval for the full course. Training centres that wish to offer updating training only will need to seek MCA approval accordingly. In such instances, the existing requirements for full course delivery must be taken into account, ie staff to learner ratio, facilities and equipment, and conduct of training.
