Professionally Equipped
Our training facility in Emmeloord is equipped with all the necessary attributes needed for training, and also features some unique state of the art equipment. Worth mentioning is our Navigation Simulator where students practice the use of independent respiratory equipment in the dark and smoke filled ship compartments and cabins. Where training on location is required we make use of our specially developped Mobile Safety Trainer and Multi Mobi Box. The advantage of our equipment is that you, as our client, do not need to purchase or provide anything for the training.

Ins & Outs of training
In our training sessions we use modern audio and video equipment. For the Refresh training we will come to you and perform the training on board of your ship, using our ultramodern Mobile Safety Trainer, equipped with ample training materials like breathing apparatus, fire-fighting equipment, survival suits, life rafts etc. A safety boat is available to assist man overboard drills. All training components are taught by certified instructors and sufficient hands-on assistance. Your ship’s crew will be trained according to a modular system. The advantage of this is that we are very flexible in the order in which the subject material is handled.


Refresh Training on board
The Manila Amendments require recurrent training for Basic Safety and Advanced Fire Fighting. An advantage for your company is that we will train you on board of your own ships, as efficiently as possible and with a minimum of time loss for the crew. Moreover everyone can practice in their own working environment. However well a training center is equipped, it can never entirely match the real work environment.

Safety Plan
One of the training components is a tour round your ship to check all your Safety Equipment according to your Safety Plan.

As soon as one of the courses we offer has been successfully completed, participants will receive an internationally recognized STCW certificate and the course will be credited in your sample booklet and security log.


Special Training for Tankers
TVK Instructie BV also provides courses for tankers, dealing with the safety precautions related to the transport of hazardous materials, working in confined spaces and measurable fumigated containers.
