In 2002, the International STCW 95 convention went into full effect and all seafarers must be trained in compliance with its provisions and carry training certificates. Vessels may be seized and detained for non-compliance. In 2010 the STCW convention was amended, expanding the training requirements to include vessel Security. Existing crew members who do not have the additional Security endorsements must take an update course to maintain the validity of their earlier training. Sign on for the STCW10 Security Update here.
