Training continues enthusiastically with Tulip looking on
Hello, I am Akira, Training Support Manager. It seems that the Spring has just done an about-face at the corner because of the cold vortex approached on Wednesday. Nevertheless, trainings full of passion and enthusiasm have been conducted here in Kitakyushu. We had STCW Basic Training from 13 to 17, FOET on 14 and BOSIET from 15 to 17 of March.

Comment by delegates, FOET
“I felt a bit less practical as we didn’t do exercise without nose protector nor EBS”
Comment by staff: HUET for FOET does contain exercise only with EBS because of its Standard. I hope you could remind yourself BOSIET training you had joined 4 years ago, at that time you had done exercise without EBS. Hope that FOET exercise still reminds you the experience.
Comment by delegates, BOSIET
“I realized the risk and hazard of my working environment through this training. Now, I could gain some confidence to respond the emergency in appropriate and calm manner. Thank you very much!”
Comment by staff: It is difficult to conduct this kind of training in your real working environment. We hope the experience here in NSTC would contribute to you in case of emergency. I am looking forward to seeing you at refresher training (FOET) soon.
Comments by delegates, STCW
“It was my first time wearing immersion suit to enter the water, and it was great to experience. I joined Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting and Elementary First Aid in other training center before, but there were many things that I learned here for the first time in my life.”
Comment by staff: Many exercises experienced here were not easy to experience in real life and onboard. We will still keep improving our training environment getting close to the real situation so that we can deliver efficient and practical training for the delegates.
The training environment is very different from the real life, therefore, we are trying our best to create comfortable and easy to learn environment for the training.
One of the Tulip is in full bloom. Flowerbed nearby the training facility will be bustling with many Tulips. We are looking forward to seeing many delegates as well as the Tulip are!
