About this course

This course forms part of the mandatory basic safety training for crew. It deals with the actions to be taken by individuals to protect themselves in emergency situations and includes practical training in the use of life jackets and inflatable life rafts.

Exercises are carefully supervised by qualified staff and can be undertaken by non-swimmers.

The training pool used has been specially equipped with a jumping platform, emergency alarms and water spray in order to enhance the realism of the procedures undertaken.

This course is part of the mandatory basic safety training courses, which also include Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting, Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities, and Elementary First Aid.
