Maritime safety - boarding lifeboatTo meet the increasing demands of mandatory safety training we offer the full range of sea survival courses. Our facilities on campus include well-equipped classrooms, extensive maintenance and workshop areas and pier head facilities.
At the pier head seafarers can practice the launch and recovery of life rafts and rescue boats, using a single arm davit and partially and totally enclosed survival craft using a twin fall gravity davit.
The training pool is specifically equipped with a jumping platform, emergency alarms, water spray, sound and lighting effects in order to enhance the realism of the procedures.
Our courses are listed below. Click on the relevant heading for further information and course availability.
