Passenger Ship Crowd Management Training
(Section A-V/2 Para 3; Table A-V/2-1)
- There are no prerequisites for entry onto this Crowd Management course
Crowd Management is an essential requirement for ships carrying passengers so that all crew designated with muster list duties know the correct course of action to assist passengers in an emergency situation. The aim of the course is to gain students knowledge of how to enact the emergency plan and control large crowds while avoiding/reducing panic.
The objective of this training is to maximise the survival chances in an emergency situation so that all aboard are accounted for, reach the muster areas and in cases of ship abandonment, ensuring that all crew and passengers are safely evacuated.
Completion of the course will give students;
- Awareness of life saving appliances and control plans
- The ability to assist passengers en route to muster and embarkation stations
- Knowledge of mustering procedures
This Crowd Management course is classroom based and will include videos, discussions and role play exercises.
STCW regulations dictate that refresher training must be completed at no more than 5-yearly intervals.
