Renovations to the STCW course training room

Covid 19 Renovations Complete

March 15th

We are open! After 15 days of disruption we have completed the final phase our emergency response renovations to our STCW training facility in the heart of the magnificent Ocean Village in Gibraltar.  Works included:


  • Extension to the main STCW course training room ensures that your essential maritime courses are still available during this pandemic so we can all keep working at sea safely, effectively a doubling in size of the main training room to well over 80Sqm  provides more personal space, natural light.
  • Installed an 86 inch electronic white board, so even if you’re sat right at the back you can still see the presentation clearly. Essential with the larger room. 
  • Active C02 monitoring to ensure adequate ventilation standards are met

We are continuing to upgrade our facilities in response to the new challenges we all face given the current circumstances, the maritime industry as a whole never stops, neither do we!

What is STCW

The term STCW refers to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers and was adopted in 1978 by conference at the International Maritime Organization and amended in 1995 and again in 2010. In simple terms it is an international maritime training framework aimed to enable a seafarer to work on any flag vessel with standardised certification. The STCW Basic Safety Training course is a 5 day training package that is mandatory for seafarers, this represents the minimum accepted maritime training level. The STCW course is still sometimes referred to as 'STCW 95' however there was an update in 2010, so it can also be referred to as 'STCW 2010'. The correct name for this course is STCW Basic Safety Training, there is no requirement to specify the amendment dates, and no centres provide the old STCW 95 course. STCW Basic Safety Training course are approved by a countries Maritime Organisation, in the case of Allabroad this is the United Kingdom Maritime & Coastgaurd Agency (MCA)
