STCW Short Course Refresher Training

From 1st January 2017, you must have documentary evidence of either having completed your STCW courses or updated your training within the previous 5 years.

The following Certificates are subject to the new continuous assessment regulations

- Personal survival techniques (STCW A-VI.2.1.1)
- Fire Prevention and firefighting (STCW A-VI.2.1.2)
- Survival craft and rescue boats other than fast rescue boats (STCW A-VI/2.1)
- Fast rescue boats (STCW A-VI/2.7) and
- Advanced fire fighting (STCW A-VI/3)

The STCW permits some elements of the updating training to be carried out on board ship with the exception of Fire Fighting and Fire Prevention. This can be done by completing and signing a self-declaration form. Full details can be found in MSN 1865 para 4.5.
However on yachts it will not be possible to undertake on board training in Personal Survival Techniques as you do not carry lifeboats or routinely launch survival craft

STCW Basic Courses

All crew applying for work on, or joining a managed yacht, must hold valid STCW short course certificates.

- Personal survival techniques (Ref A-VI/1-1).
- Fire prevention and firefighting (Ref A-VI/1-2).
- Elementary first aid (Ref A-VI/1-3).
- Personal safety & Social responsibility (Ref A-VI/1-4).
- Security awareness 9Ref A-VI / 6

STCW courses for CoC Holders

Advanced Fire Fighting

Certificate of Competency and other Certificates
All crew applying for work on, or joining a company-managed yacht, must hold a valid certificate / qualification for the position they are applying for. Revalidation and ancillary courses required to maintain their certificate is for the crew members’ account.

If any of your STCW certificates have an expiry date on them we been advised by the Flag State that they are not valid after the expiry date.

HELM – Human Element Leadership and Management

There are two levels of HELM (Operational and Management) and they are not generic STCW programs. They are however a required addition to all flag state training programs. The content of a flag state’s HELM short course will depend upon the overall content of that flag’s current CoC.

The short course will be designed to make up any short fall in content of the CoC and therefore may change from flag to flag.

If you are revalidating a current MCA CoC you will not be required to undertake the additional HELM training. Candidates for new MCA CoC and those upgrading to the next level, will be required to undertake the full HELM training.

Holders of CoCs issued by other Flag States should enquire directly to them

20th January 2016

Fleet update

January is a busy month, whilst some yachts are busy cruising in the Caribbean other are taking the time to catch up on routine and major maintenance.

We currently have yachts in Pisa, Genoa, Toulon, Malta and Bremen in refit getting ready for the summer season.

Why not trust WYM to organise and manage your next refit?

Branding Announcement

Wilson Yacht Management have announced the launch of their new and improved website following the makeover of the Company Logo.

Allan Wilson, the founder and Managing Director of the company unveiled the new look during the Monaco Boat Show.  Allan explained the reason for the change:

“The original Compass Rose Logo was introduced when I founded the company in 2001 to oversee Project Management and introduction into service of M/Y Reverie (1,975 gt) which was at that time one of the world’s largest superyachts.

Since then the company has grown considerably and we now provide Management Services for 19 yachts ranging from 200gt to 4,300gt and the support team has grown to 8 full time employees.

I thought it was time to refresh our marketing image so all of the team were consulted and eventually it was jointly decided to retire the Compass Rose Logo and introduce  a new refreshed Logo that is more identifiable with the Company in order to promote future growth .”

I wish to say a personal thank you for the support you have given me and Vortex Marine over the last two years. Peter, my late husband was pleased he picked the right company, yours, to help with all matters.

- Pauline Bull, Motor Yacht Titan

It has been about a year since you have taken over the management of our client's 60 meter Feadship. We have previously had two other management companies and even did the work ourselves for several months. I wanted to thank you for your excellent service and let you know how pleased we are in how seamlessly you have taken over and done just what we needed. The boat is now back in the Mediterranean and I look forward to a good summer season ahead. Thanks again for your exemplary management and support.
