What this document is about

This document provides the criteria for the development of courses to deliver training in elementary first aid, medical first aid and medical care on board ship.

 

Training courses developed in line with these criteria, delivered at centres approved by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), will cover:

  • Elementary first aid (section 2);

  • Medical first aid (section 3);

  • Medical care (section 4);

  • Medical care updating training (section 5) – an EU-specific requirement for service on EU registered vessels.

 

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.

 

The national occupational standards relating to this training are:

A16 – Provide medical services on board a vessel.

 

There is also a suite of Maritime Studies Qualifications which contain units relevant to this training; the specific units are:

  • Emergency first aid in response to maritime accidents or medical emergencies;

  • Provide medical first aid on board a vessel;

  • Take charge of medical care on board a vessel.

 

Why these criteria have been developed

These criteria have been developed to deliver education and training covering first aid and medical care to meet specific parts of the regulatory requirements of Tables A-VI/1-3, A-VI/4-1 and A-VI/4-2 of the Annex to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978, hereafter referred to as STCW. It also covers the medical care updating training specific to the EU and as identified in EC Directive 92/29 EEC and part 6 of the MCA Training and Certification Guidance – MGN 96 (M).

 

Who the training is aimed at

This training is required by seafarers seeking certification under:

a. STCW Regulation VI/I – basic training or instruction for seafarers employed or engaged in any capacity on board ship on the business of that ship as part of the ship’s complement as appropriate;

b. STCW Regulation VI/4 – training for seafarers who are designated to provide medical first aid on board ship;

c. STCW Regulation VI/4 – training for seafarers who are designated to take charge of medical care on board ship;

d. EU Council Directive 92/29 EEC as interpreted by the MCA – training required for masters and other persons in charge of medical care on UK or EU-flag vessels who are required to undertake refresher training every five years.

 

Aims of the training

The overall aim is to provide seafarers with the necessary knowledge, understanding and proficiency to carry out designated first aid and medical duties in accordance with international regulations.

The MNTB is a voluntary body and a part of the UK Chamber of Shipping, the trade association for the UK shipping industry. We work closely with shipping and ship management companies, nautical educational establishments and organisations, seafarer trade unions, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and industry organisations with an interest in seafarer education and training.

 

The MNTB provides the link to government departments and bodies involved with the shipping industry as well as those involved with the UK skills agenda and education and training developments. This includes the Department for Transport (DfT), the Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills (BIS), and UK education regulatory authorities and bodies. The MNTB works closely with the Maritime Skills Alliance to achieve joint aims with partner organisations in the maritime sector.

 

We carry out a wide range of careers promotion activities through our ‘Careers at Sea’ brand. This is currently under expansion to encompass the full range of careers activity at sea and within the shipping industry ashore and the wider maritime sector.
