Safety and Survival Training

Prepare for a full day of hands-on training in fighting fires, plugging leaks, and swimming to a life raft in a survival suit. This course is designed for all fishermen, including crewmen, to learn of hone fundamental survival skills like making a MAYDAY call, lighting flares and rescuing a person that falls overboard.

Drill Conductor Certification:

After completing the 1-day Safety and Survival Training Course, fishermen spend a second day learning how to lead monthly, on-vessel safety drills that are critical for building muscle memory and ensuring the crew retains their skills. Meet U.S. Coast Guard requirements under 46 CFR 28.270(c).
