Sea Safety & Survival Course - Are you current or your crew?

Do you have confidence that your crew could safely carry out an evacuation with less than 60 seconds to prepare?


​​​​​​​Do you crew on a boat where you are not really sure what questions you should be asking or drills should be happening for your safety at sea?

Do you want to spend more time racing or cruising offshore and are not sure if you are ready at the moment?

Are you planning a big trip and feeling overwhelmed by the choices and investment in all of the safety equipment available? Joining a structured course with a small group of people in a similar situation can have an extremely powerful effect on your confidence and competence for offshore boating adventures.
 ​​​
The Above and Beyond Boating Sea Safety and Survival Course is Australia’s leading marine safety course. 

 
 

As you know, there is no substitute to gaining experience from time on the water and heading offshore should be a perfect way of gaining that experience. Unfortunately for many people when they are heading offshore even when they work through potentially dangerous and serious predicaments that 
lack of a debriefing with a review of the learning outcomes means that the potential to learn from these situations is often missed.

When looking heading offshore, you really have two options when it comes to developing your skills…
 1) Keep doing what you’re doing and hope for the best, or
 2) You learn and implement an approach to safety that has been proven to work in a structured approach.

If you chose option two, you will be preparing yourself in the best possible way to deal with some of the worst possible situations you might encounter at sea.

 
How Does the Sea Safety & Survival Course Work?     

Small Groups
We deliver this training for a maximum of 10 in a class, although Australian Sailing rules allow us to have up to 20 people. This significantly decreases the time pressure throughout the program and allows us to create practical sessions throughout the two days and not have to depend on lectures to deliver content.

 

Tailored Course Content
Our small groups allow us more time so 
that questions are not just encouraged, they are essential and we have dedicated the time to explore your specific situations through our interactive sessions.

I hear I forget, I see I remember, I do I understand. 
Wherever possible we cover the training on a boat. We spend the minimum possible time in the classroom. You will set storm sails, deploy a drogue, set a sea anchor, as well as 
setting off flares, spending time in the water in a life jacket and using liferafts.
