Proficiency in Designated Security Duties (PDSD)
In addition to all of the the above courses, we offer the PDSD security course for those with designated security duties (in practice most of the crew on superyachts) This is a 6 hours classroom based course.
It is a useful course to have even if you dont have any current ‘designated duties’ as roles change and even crew with minor roles should have the qualification .
The training will enable the student to:
> Know why ship security is important and understand the roles and responsibilities of the organisations and individuals involved
> Understand what constitutes a security risk, threat and vulnerability to the ship, its personnel, cargo and operations
> Know the capabilities and limitations of security methods, equipment and systems
> Know how to maintain the measures in a ship security plan and related requirements
> Be able to maintain the effectiveness of security arrangements, procedures and equipment at the three security levels, taking into account their limitations.
Having the PDSD means that candidates do not need the PSA
