Proficiency in Security Awareness

The NEW online Proficiency in Security Awareness (PSA) course.

If you are employed or engaged on ship or yacht to which the ISPS code applies you will need the Proficiency in Security Awareness certificate. Gaining this certificate does not mean a trip to your nearest training centre with their limited training dates. There is a NEW online course. The online course has been written by Industry experts who are individually handpicked for their subject knowledge.

The new online Proficiency in Security Awareness course has been developed by The Virtual Training Centre. VTC are specialists in online training and offer a range of maritime courses. The online PSA course is approved by the UK Department for Transport (DfT) Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).
The PSA course is 100% online. It includes confirmation questions throughout the training. There is a final assessment of 25 questions with no need to attend a test centre. On successful completion, the student can immediately download proof of completion certificate. The official STCW ISPS certificate is then emailed to the student or company.
The course should only take around 4-5 hours to complete and can be done anywhere with your lap top or PC, as long as you have reliable internet access. Study in the comfort of your own home or cabin in your own time. There are time, travel and cost savings to be made by completing the course online. Employers are keen for more mandatory training to be available online. Logistically, finding a course, then managing shifts to allow a person time to attend classroom based training can be difficult.
The course is up to date and in compliance with IMO security training requirements. If you need this certificate, register now and you could be certified today or certainly within a few days depending on your time available for study.
