On the 13th of December 2011 the Marine Rescue Training Centre of Maritime University of Szczecin got an accreditation for  Ordinary Seaman (OS) and  Able Bodied Seaman (AB) courses. It means that the Centre has met particular requirements in conducting these courses and the courses are in compliance with STCW Convention. Such accreditation is granted by the Marine Office.
