Establishing a modern Fire Fighting School to train the necessary personnel in the field of Marine Safety is imperative for any Maritime Nation. Throughout history and still nowadays fire is the worst enemy of the crew, cargo, vessels and the industry as a whole. The primary objective of this Paper is to provide a comprehensive study and a guideline to the Maritime Academy in Algeria for the day it undertakes to establish a Fire Fighting Centre. In this work I shall mainly attempt to define and outline the detailed Syllabuses and Training Schemes for the Theoretical and Practical Training dealing with fire prevention, fire fighting and fire safety, for which purpose I’ve developed different Training Courses, including their objectives, main content and their duration. Furthermore I have also provided recommendations and descriptions of the training facilities together with the necessary equipment and materials to carry out the various fire fighting exercises. However, the financial aspect and cost involved for the I establishment of such a Centre is outside the scope of this study.
