Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats Other Than Fast Rescue Boats (Restricted)
The Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats Other Than Fast Rescue Boats (Restricted) course, previously Advanced Sea Survival for Yachtsmen has now been updated and issued under regulation VI/2 of STCW 1978 as amended.
This ancillary course is part of the training required to obtain an MCA Officer of the Watch (Yachts less than 3000gt) Certificate of Competency.
The Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats Other Than Fast Rescue Boats (Restricted) course will provide the education and training to yacht personnel who are required to take charge of a survival craft in emergency situations.
The course is intended for only personnel serving in vessels not equipped with davit launched lifeboats and is intended as a direct replacement for the existing “Advanced Sea Survival” certificate.
This certificate does not qualify the holder to operate fast rescue boats.
Please note; the Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats Other Than Fast Rescue Boats (Restricted) course is required to be updated every five years from the date of issue. If you hold an Advanced Sea Survival of Yachtsmen certificate, you can update this by completing an Updated Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats Other Than Fast Rescue Boats (Restricted) course.

- Be at least 18 years of Age;
- Hold a Certificate of Proficiency in Personal Survival Techniques (STCW Code A-VI/1-1);

Examination and Assessment:
