MCA Proficiency in DESIGNATED Security DUTIES [PDSD] Course

Training in designated security duties must be undertaken by seafarers engaged on ships which are required to comply with the provisions of the ISPS Code and who have designated duties under the ships security plan.


This training/instruction meets the requirements of Section A-VI paragraphs 6-8 of the amended STCW code.


This training leads to the issue of an STCW Certifcate of Proficiency.


This course goes into more detail than the PSA course and certification here will negate the need for the PSA.


Well worth doing, as most crew will have some security duties and should therefore be in possession of this certificate. It is a full day course that we conduct as a stand alone course. It can be organised onboard or at our classrooms for yacht crews on demand.
