Standards of Training, Certification & Watchkeeping (STCW 95)
Seattle Merchant Mariner Training specializes in USCG license training and testing, both in the classroom and on the water. In addition to this, mariners who intend to serve aboard vessels greater than 200 gross registered tons in US domestic waters, or aboard any vessel operating outside of the US (either 200+ nautical miles offshore or traveling in any non-US country's waters) are required by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to obtain STCW 95 certification.
Our partner school, North Pacific Fishing Vessel Owners' Association (NPFVOA) at Fisherman's Terminal, Seattle, provides the following required STCW 95 courses:
