STCW Updated Proficiency in Fire Fighting and Fire Prevention  is a one day course and involves theoretical and practical exercises involving the use of hoses, extinguishers and BA sets. It's suitable for seafarers who already have an STCW certificate and are looking to update their skills in order to maintain the required standard of competence as set on in section A-VI/1 of the STCW Code. This needs to be done every 5 years so make sure you enrol before it's too late.
