We firmly believe that core knowledge is key, but with the unique and dynamic challenges that the marine environment presents, sport and activity-specific guidelines are essential. Our goal is pretty simple: to deliver the highest quality, and most relevant medical/ preparation training possible for mariners.
We have 3 different levels of Maritime Medicine courses, ranging from 1 day harbor conferences, to 10 day sailing expeditions. Each course is taught by experienced medical, rescue, and maritime professionals. We strive for highly practical, skills and scenario based, trainings.
ON THE BOAT OR IN THE CLASSROOM Commercial or professional crew? Gain valuable experience practicing lifesaving skills on your vessel. We’ll get your team and vessel updated, practice existing plans and/or help implement new ones.
No Boat? No problem. We have boats and contract partners sprinkled all over the West Coast and Caribbean.
Don’t just read about it on the internet (but do that, too. Click here for resources). Practice real world scenarios and case studies at the dock or on the water.
This is not an average CPR/ 1st Aid course. Train with experienced USCG Captains and licensed Paramedics in this special course format. While CPR/ 1ST AID FOR THE MARINER satisfies American Heart Association requirements for CPR/ and First Aid Certification, additional modules include: Drowning/ Cold water Immersion, Maritime safety systems, and Hypothermia. Practice live scenarios in maritime context.
