Coursework combines lecture and hands-on experience with the safety and survival equipment now required for commercial fishing vessels. Participants will learn about emergency procedures and be trained to develop appropriate emergency drills for their own vessels.

Cost: $100. Those who commercially fish may take the course for $50 due to program support from the Seattle Fishermen’s Memorial.
