MARITIME SECURITY AWARENESS

Helpful links

 

Ship’s security is one of the greatest concerns for every shipping company whose ships ply the international waters. Though there are advanced systems such as a Ship Security Alert System (SSAS) and a Ship Security Reporting System (SSRS) to enhance maritime security, contribution of the crew towards ship security plays a very important role. 
 
Before being assigned to shipboard duties, all persons employed or engaged on a seagoing ship that is required to comply with the provisions of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, other than passengers, will need to take a USCG approved Maritime Security Awareness Course.
 
Sea School’s Coast Guard approved four (4) hour Maritime Security Awareness course is intended to provide the knowledge required for all personnel who are not assigned specific duties with a security plan, but are involved in the work of ports, facilities and vessels and are therefore subject to the security awareness training requirements of the ISPS. 
 
This course will not provide any training to fight or similarly respond to security threats. Students will be able to identify, deter or mitigate such actions through proper planning, preparation and coordination with various entities.
