First Aid Training in Fife...

Greetings, everyone! I am pleased to announce that the Flagship Maritime Training Center now offers bi-monthly First Aid / CPR training in-house at our new training facility in Fife, next to West Marine. This is a requirement for licensed mariners to keep current every twelve months, and for mariners applying for licensure, an essential document for your submittal package. For everyone else, isn’t it simply a good idea to know these skills, whether ashore or afloat?

The instructor is George Schoettle, a firefighter for decades and an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) trainer. The course he teaches is certified by OSHA, WISHA and the American Heart Association.

The first course we’re offering starts at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 25th – that’s weekend after next! George is otherwise committed that morning, hence the afternoon start time. We expect to go into the evening hours a bit. If you can’t make this go round with such short notice, we’re going to schedule another session for a Saturday in June, most likely the 13th.

One bit of good news is that the tuition is only $30 – you’ll find that’s quite a deal if you try to shop around for less! We already have six people signed up for the 25th; please let me know ASAP if you are planning to attend. We have plenty of room available for large classes here at the Center.

Spread the word to your shipmates, too ... this is great training for everyone!

Keep in touch!
