Covid-19 Update From SALT

To all our customers and business partners,

Following the advice and recommendations of the Prime Minister regarding Covid-19, the directors and management of SALT Services have made the difficult decision to cancel (or at least postpone) all our courses until further notice. Link to NHS advice for Covid-19 (

Once the virus has been defeated, we will of course resume our courses and get back to normal operations as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by our decision, but we have to place staff, delegates and client safety at the top of our priority list.

In these challenging and difficult times, SALT Services are offering delegates a significant discount on our current price for the Basic Safety Training Week (BSTW). SALT’s BSTW offer is called “Stay Safe, Train Later”. We are offering the course for £900 incl of VAT, a saving of £150 on our usual course fees. This discount will also apply to delegates who have retained their current BSTW bookings with us (thank you for your support). Contact us on 0131 510 0321

Please follow the advice from the Government and NHS and stay safe.

STCW Training in Edinburgh

Established in 2013, Sea Air & Land Training (SALT) Services Ltd. is a specialist STCW training provider based in Edinburgh, Scotland. We provide high-quality MCA approved and accredited courses for professionals already working in, or looking for a career in the maritime industry. SALT HQ is located within the beautiful village of Colinton, which is within 9 miles of Edinburgh International Airport, 5 miles from the city centre and easily accessible by Edinburgh’s excellent local bus services.

STCW 2010 requires all seafarers to receive basic safety training or instruction in accordance with section A-VI/1 of the STCW Code for all vessels over 24 metres in length. This includes vessels such as cruise ships, barges, super yachts, tugs and support vessels to name but a few. However, many employers and fishing boat skippers expect their crews to hold these qualifications regardless of the size of the vessel. The minimum requirements for familiarisation and basic safety training are contained within SALT’s Basic Safety Training Week (BSTW).

SALT provide a variety of MCA accredited STCW 2010 courses utilising state of the art facilities, training equipment and up to date training methods. Our experienced instructors and managers are veterans from the armed forces and maritime industry. We can also offer bespoke training dates to meet the specific needs of your organisation or company.
