|D O W N L O A D|
Here is another IMO model course, this one dealing with the shipboard rescue boats. The trainees will start with the construction and outfitting of the FRC (fast rescue boats) installed on board seagoing vessels, including their equipment, and then proceed to particular characteristics of the boats and their facilities.
The next section of the course is dealing with the equipment including the safety and navigation items, as well as the emergency equipment, since it is mandatory to have a thorough knowledge of what shall be carried on board and how it shall be used. The necessary safety precautions have been addressed in a separate section and shall be taken into account during the launching and recovery of the boats; you will also have the information on the drills there.
The remaining sections of this first half cover the handling of the FRC including procedure for its righting in case of capsizing, readiness of the boat and equipment, search and rescue etc. The second part is devoted to the operation of the engine, covering all types of engines, such as the inboard and outboard ones, water-jet propulsion, together with the associated drills.
The trainees who have successfully completed the course, will have adequate knowledge of the above stated items and therefore considered prepared for the handling of the shipboard rescue boats.
