The Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) requires sea survival training to be completed before going to sea for the first time.
The course is designed to teach you the principles of sea survival and understand the correct usage of sea survival equipment.
The course is fully approved by Seafish and the RYA
The course consists of lectures, films and demonstrations on safety procedures and survival equipment, with a 'wet drill' in the swimming pool in the afternoon. A clean change of clothing is required for the wet drill. All other equipment is supplied.
The course starts at 8.45am and completes by 5pm.
