Frequently Asked Questions

All of our courses are available to purchase through the Virtual Training Centre website located at https://virsec.org. Each of our courses are assigned under a Category (such as Maritime Security) and you may also find the same course in another category if it is relevant to it. To select the course, simply click on the image of the course or the title and you will be directed to the relevant Course Information & Purchasing Page on the website. Alternatively, you can just click on the ‘Add to Cart’ button and it will place the course in the e-Commerce Shopping Cart.

On some of the courses such as the Ship Security Officer, you are required to have sufficient sea time of 12 months to receive the final certificate. Our MCA Accredited (STCW ISPS) Courses also require you to demonstrate a good understanding of the English Language, and this is a requirement of taking one of these courses.

You may take as many courses as you wish, but if taking the MCA Approved (STCW ISPS) Courses, it is advisable to (a) check with your ship or company which one they require you to take, and (b) confirm with us that you are indeed taking the correct course(s) as some course certification encompasses other course certification within it.
