Familiarizes crews with lifeboat inspection, maintenance, and training regulations and requirements, so they can safely operate the lifeboats on their installation.
This training prepares crews to execute a safe and quick evacuation and rescue in the event of an emergency.
In most emergency situations, the lifeboat is the primary means of escape. This course prepares crews for an orderly, panic-free abandonment.
Preventable incidents such as human error and mechanical failure are two of the leading causes of liquid cargo spills. This training program focuses on pre-arrival and pre-transfer inspections, the completion of the Declaration of Inspection, the importance of meaningful pre-transfer conferences between PICs, and other important responsibilities of both the facility and vessel Person in Charge.
It is vital for crews to understand and train in the use of marine distress signals from radio communication and visual markers (flares, smokes, rockets), to electronic locators such as EPIRBs and SARTs. In this two-part program, maritime employees will learn how to rapidly notify Search & Rescue Authorities of their emergency and assist them by quickly guiding rescue crafts to their location.
