Formerly – Personal Survival Techniques Confident Captain/Ocean Pros offers a 12-Hour Basic Sea Survival module that is instructed in compliance with STCW ’10 Code A – VI/1-2. It consists of a full day in the classroom covering subjects such as emergency situations, evacuation, survival craft and rescue boats, personal lifesaving appliances, survival at sea, emergency radio equipment and helicopter assistance. The remainder of the module is spent in a swimming pool performing a life raft inflation and inversion and the simulation of other abandon ship procedures. Both the theory and practical are followed by an exam.
Don’t like how it works through a smart phone. I would never rely on a smartphone for a life saving device. They are known to crash, glitch, break or batteries die. It would be better to interface with a plotter or stand-alone receiver.
➡️ Do you have a fun or interesting skill that you are good at that you would like to share with others?
➡️ Confident Captain is going to offer a series of "local talent" nights for crews and industry pros this spring at our office in Middletown.
Think "interesting talent to share over a beer and some snacks". If you have a hankering to teach some other folks in the industry a new skill or even something cool that is not related to boating, and you want to make a few bucks in the process, message us and pitch us your idea.
You'll get paid 💲for your presentation sure, but more importantly, you'll have some fun, make some new friends, and share some knowledge!👍🏻🍻
