Staff Training Program

By design, the CSNCOE serves as in-house consultants and technical experts on the cruise industry to all Coast Guard stakeholders, maintains up-to-date field tactics, techniques, & procedures (TTP), trains field personnel throughout the Coast Guard on cruise ship exams, and monitors their collective performance.  As such, both the baseline certification and annual refresher training required of CSNCOE staff members is considerably higher than that expected of all Coast Guard foreign passenger vessel examiners (FPVE).  Likewise, staff training mimics the STCW requirements for crew serving on passenger ships.
