One of the elements of STCW basic training, the STCW Survival course can be used instead of the RYA Sea Survival course for Commercial Endorsements. Book the STCW Survival, FIrst Aid, PSSR and Security Awareness courses together and the cost is reduced to £300
It is a well-proven fact that, in the event of an emergency at sea, people with training are more likely to survive.
An important part of the course is a practical session in a swimming pool. Experience first hand the problems of entering an uncooperative liferaft and assisting others while fully kitted out in wet weather gear and a lifejacket.
Course topics include:
liferafts and the equipment they contain
the design of lifejackets
medical aspects of sea survival
search and rescue techniques
