Proficiency in Designated Security Duties
South West Maritime Academy
What is the STCW Proficiency in Designated Security Duties Course? The Proficiency in Designated Security Duties (PDSD) course is set out by the STCW and Manila amendments 2010 that contain new requirements regarding security training. This course supersedes the Proficiency in Security Awareness. In fact these regulations came into force 1 January 2014 yet many crew members are still not compliant and therefore render the vessel open to being detained by port state control. Training must be undertaken by all seafarers and security personnel who have designated duties under the Ships Security Plan (SSP). Furthermore all of our training is carried out by instructors with the highest level of maritime security experience so when you come to us for maritime security training of any kind you can be sure you are getting the best in the industry.
