The Advanced Marine Firefighting course emphasizes hands-on training to provide you with the skills necessary to effectively lead an emergency response team aboard a merchant vessel or offshore facility. Supplementing the hands-on training are classroom sessions utilizing discussion, demonstrations, case histories, and visual presentations.

You will be assigned to various positions on emergency response teams and will be asked to respond to different live fire situations as an organized unit. As part of an attack team and scene leader, you will assess the situation, decide on a course of action, and implement chosen tactics to successfully control the incident.

You will be provided with the knowledge and skills required to conduct a rapid, precise size-up of a fire, to determine the correct course of action (strategy), and to direct an appropriate tactical response with the resources at hand.

The course exceeds International Maritime Organization (IMO), Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW), and U.S. Coast Guard advanced firefighting training requirements.

This course satisfies the requirements of 46 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 10.301-303, and the Advanced Firefighting training requirements of Section A-VI/3 and Table A-VI/3 of the STCW95 Code and 46 CFR 10.205(1)(2), and satisfies the Advanced Firefighting training requirements of 46 CFR 10.205(g) and 10.401(g)(1) for a license or tankerman endorsement.
