Requirement for certificate of proficiency for LFF

The IGF Code for ships using low-flashpoint fuels took effect as of January 2017. From 1st of July 2018, everyone who has duties or responsibilities associated with the care and use of fuel, or who has management responsibility for such operations on board this type of ships, must hold a certificate of proficiency (COP) for low-flashpoint fuels (LFF). Ref. NMA Homepage.

The training is divided into 2 steps. LFF BASIC and LFF ADVANCED

LFF BASIC TRAINING

LFF Basic is required for all personnel with duties onboard an IGF vessel.

The LFF BASIC training consists of the following three steps:

  1. E-learning module which can be carried out on a cell phone, tablet or computer. The participant needs to complete e-learning before the

    next step.

  2. Practical training and assessment at a safety training centre. The module takes approximately 4 hours.

  3. Theoretical exam in a classroom. The participant has one hour available.

 When you enroll the course, you will receive account details which give you access to the theoretical part of the course: E-learning. Use your log in to start and fulfil the course. You will have access to the E-learning platform for 12 months from the first login.

After fulfilling the BASIC course, the participant will get a diploma which is required to apply for COP.
