This intensive one day course is designed to give you the knowledge and skills to survive in the water or in a life-raft until help can get to you. On this course you will learn how lifejackets work, and the correct equipment you should have on them; the correct use of flares, survival requirements and abandonment.
You will be taught how to get into a life-raft from the water, and from a boat, and what you would expect to find in a life-raft once you are in it; how to survive in the water on your own, or in a group. During this course you will talk about the equipment and techniques, you will then put them into practice during an invaluable session in a swimming pool.
This course is extremely worthwhile as the skills that you learn could prolong your survival time, and give rescue services a greater chance of locating you. People that have completed this course greatly increase their chances of survival should they be involved in an emergency at sea.
