A key change for crew courses in 2018 is the introduction of a refresher extension.
Refresher extensions acknowledge the value of regular involvement, and those who are eligible can delay the need to attend a refresher by an additional year.
As each round of crew training courses approaches and the standard 1 year certification period is due to be renewed, an application can be made online. If you meet the criteria below, you may be eligible to delay your next refresher by a further year.
(Applications are subject to venue approval)
You attended a refresher in the summer of 2017 and are due to refresh in the summer of 2018.
If you apply and are granted an extension, you will be due to refresh in the summer of 2019.
If you have not fulfilled the criteria, then you will refresh in the summer of 2018 as per usual.
