Alternative fuels used in the maritime industry, like LNG, methanol and LPG, require a different way of working. To enable employees and crewmembers to work safely with these fuels, RelyOn Nutec offers the ‘IGF basic training’. IGF is a code of safety for ships using alternative fuels, such as LPG, LNG and Methanol. The training focuses on working safely with these various fuels as described in the IGF Code, with RelyOn Nutec focusing on LNG, but we can adapt the course to focus on a company specific requirement. Building on STCW requirements, participants will also uniquely learn how to control gas fires and gas releases in practical session at our Maasvlakte-Rotterdam facility.
The ‘Basic training for ships subject to the IGF Code’ is to provide training for personnel serving on LNG fueled vessels with a dedicated safety duty in accordance with the STCW-code part A-V/3-1 training of personnel aboard ships subject to the IGF Code.
For admission to the course, delegates must be have:
- An approved medical examination for SCBA users and a the competency to use SCBA in firefighting operations on board vessels OR a valid medical examination certificate for seafarers and
- A valid initial or refresher ‘Basic Training’ in Fire prevention and firefighting as set out in table A-VI/1-3
