Crewmember Training

                   These classes are a foundation for any person(s) assigned to or working on rescue boats (police, fire, towing) Currently we offer three classes:

A.   8-Hour lecture – Designed for the novice as an introduction to the marine environment. This class will cover basic marine terminology, vessel characteristics, equipment, distress signals, towing and trailering, ropes and knots, safety, communications, and department SOP’s.

B.    16-Hour class – The 16-hour class will break up the 8-hour lecture into modules to incorporate hands-on training. Beginning with a half-day lecture, this class moves into hands-on training and familiarization of your equipment. Day two begins with a short classroom session and quickly moves into practical exercises using your equipment.

C.    32-Hour class – This class is designed as the basics for an agency starting a new program. We start with the 16-hour class and progress into practical applications for boat operators on day three while crewmembers are completing more practical exercises. On the last day, we combine operator and crewmember techniques in practical exercises to introduce the team concept and team building. This class truly provides the most for your money.
