This course satisfies the competency requirements of Table A-VI/3 of the STCW Code, as amended 2010, and NVIC 09-14, for Advanced Fire Fighting and will satisfy the training requirements of 46 CFR 11.201(h), and 11.303(a). Applicants are not required to present completed record of assessment sheets when applying for the STCW endorsement.
