CoST – Certificate of Safety Training

ERGT’s Certificate of Safety Training (CoST) course is designed for personnel working on sea vessels who require the CoST issued by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) or STCW certificates. The course combines the four short course requirements for the AMSA issued CoST. It provides the skills and knowledge required to identify workplace hazards and risks, prevent, or if necessary, respond to incidents including fires, recognise and report security threats, and be able to survive at sea in the event of an abandonment.

The individuals attending the course will range from new inexperienced workers to experienced workers from the Maritime and Oil and Gas industries. The certification requirement applies to deck and engine workers working in the maritime industry requiring a CoST.
