Polar Code Course
The Polar Code requires that all crew is trained in the use of group survival equipment and personal survival equipment for survival on the ice, on the water, and on a remote shore to ensure survival for no less than five days.
A training concept with experienced trainers and specially adapted to the specifics of the route and the ship forms the basis for compliance with the Polar Code.
These provisions are mandatory for ships subject to SOLAS Chapter XIV and navigating waters as defined in SOLAS Regulations XIV/1.2 and XIV/1.3. This training should also cover special personnel on board.
