To help commercial fishermen meet the Federal requirement 46CFR 270 (c) , McMillan Offshore Survival Training  offers a 1 day USCG approved fishing vessel drill conductor course. Upon completion, participants will be nationally certified to conduct the required monthly on board emergency drills. 46CFR 270 states: “The master or individual in charge of each vessel must ensure that drills are conducted & instruction is given to each individual on board at least once each month. Instruction and drills must ensure that each individual is familiar with their duties and their responses to at least the following contingencies.

  • Abandoning the vessel
  • Fighting a fire in different locations on board the vessel
  • Recovering an individual from the water
  • Minimizing the affects of unintentional flooding
  • Launching survival craft and recovering lifeboats and rescue boats

WHAT TO BRING: Training takes place in water so we ask participants  to bring their survival suits. Suits can be provided if necessary for students. This course has been designed for the swimmer and non-swimmer alike. We also encourage participants to bring any equipment that they would like to review or discuss in class. ( EPIRB’s, distress flares etc.)
