Training that we provide...
Seamanship & Boating Safety
This section focuses on terminology and the safe operation of commercial vessels, towing theory, and firefighting.
(Power and Sail)
This section covers the theory and operation of commercial vessels (Power and Sail). While on board our training vessels, students put the text book skills learned in the class room to practical use. This training includes docking, maneuvering while underway, man overboard drills, and navigation.
Basic and advanced First Aid training/ Emergency training
This training is designed to prepare the student for emergency situations that warrant treatment of injuries that can occur in a maritime environment. Our basic course meets the coast guard requirements for CPR and first aid training. All sections are instructed by a New York State Licensed Cfr-D. Advanced training covers topics such as search and rescue exercises, maneuvering astern, principles of hypothermia, and a review of treatment for several types of possible emergencies.
Piloting and Coastal Navigation
This section sharpens the keen ability that is required to skipper a vessel through channels, harbors and coastal areas. Students are first shown methods of accurately establishing a vessel's position, and "dead reckoning" skills. After these skills are perfected, we take to our training boat for a trip. Additional study covers tides and currents. (4 to 8 hour underway time)
Electronic Navigation & Communications
This section covers inshore navigation, instrument navigation, chart navigation, and the operation of other devices such as VHF radio, Loran, GPS, and Radar. Applications are conducted onboard our training vessel.
This section includes a hands-on approach to learning and maintaining systems onboard commercial vessels. We walk through and learn the proper inspection of our training vessel and a local 72' excursion vessel.
Collision Avoidance Course
This section covers the theory and application of collision avoidance while operating commercial vessels. Topics covered include shiphandling, pilot house procedures, lights and sound signals, radar awareness in collision avoidence, operation in channels, give way and stand on vessel collision avoidence, and restricted visibility navigation.
