COVID-19 (Coronavirus)- Travel Restrictions  

Please be advised that students arriving to Ireland will not be permitted to attend training at the NMCI without demonstrating that they have been in Ireland for 14 days prior to attending the course.

Alternatively, if a delegate can provide written confirmation of a negative/not detected RT-PCR test taken no less than 5 days after their arrival from a country not on the designated states list, they may also be permitted to attend training.

We do not know how long the current travel restrictions will be in place. This will depend on the ongoing coronavirus situation. Please visit the website links below for further information.  


In conforming to the provisions of STCW Convention Regulation 1/14, and section A-1/14, of the STCW Code, companies must ensure that seafarers assigned to any of their ships have received refresher and updating training as required by the convention.

Seafarers required to hold any of the certificates of proficiency listed below shall, every five years, provide evidence of having maintained the required standard of competence to undertake the tasks, duties and responsibilities.

Delegates who have kept their training up to date on board ship will be able to sign a self-declaration form enabling them to complete the Short Route Refresher Training (3days for all 5 courses). Those who have not kept their training up to date and are unable to sign a self-declaration form will have to complete the Long Route Refresher Training (5 days for all 5 courses).



We would advise that you consult with your company in relation to your training requirements as these are dependent on your roles and responsibilities in your current position.

If you have any further questions or queries please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll do our utmost to assist. We also offer STCW Refresher Training on a bespoke basis.
