BT and Advanced FF Renewal Requirements (NVICs 02-14, 08-14 and 09-14) (STCW VI/1 and VI/3)
At your FIRST MMC RENEWAL AFTER 12/31/16 – In order to renew your Basic Training and Advanced Fire Fighting Endorsements you must have:
- 360 days sea service. Any vessel that is required to hold regular fire and emergency and abandon ship drills.
- Basic Training Revalidation. (1 day course, dated within 5 years of renewal)
- Advanced Fire Fighting Revalidation. (1 day course, dated within 5 years of renewal)
If you meet the above requirements, the USCG will renew all STCW endorsements (VI/1 - BT; VI/3 - AFF; VI/2 - PSC)
NOTE: Those on ROS vessels receive sea service credit towards STCW as they regularly hold fire and boat drills (letter from Company may be required). This does not change regulation and guidance on how ROS service applies towards renewal of National credentials (see National Renewal Checklist below).
Survival Craft and Fast Rescue Boat STCW 2010 Renewal Requirements (NVICs 02-14, 04-14 and 05-14) (STCW VI/2)
As an existing mariner once you have obtained these endorsements, if you meet the ongoing Basic Training Revalidation Renewal requirements noted above the USCG will automatically renew these endorsements with no additional training.
