The present model course is aimed to meet the requirements for the seafarers for familiarization, basic safety training and instruction as per the A-VI/1 of the STCW Code. It has been specifically designed for preparation of the new recruits to the life and work at sea - such training has been considered necessary taking into account the different environment on a vessel as compared to the life ashore. it is well understood that working on board a vessel can sometimes be hazardous for the uninitiated people. The intention of the course is to provide the new seafarers with the insight into the elements of a vessel together with the established working procedures so that it is much easier for them to adjust to the environment on board and to cope with any circumstances. It is hoped that this course will make the transition of the new seafarers from a shore life to a sea career go smooth and give them some required knowledge of the vessel's working before they step on board. Trainees who have successfully completed the present course will be able to observe all safe working practices, comply with the existing emergency procedures, understand and be understood, contribute to the relationships between people etc.
