About the Course
This two-day course provides the candidate with knowledge of the contents of the International Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue Manual (IAMSAR), and the procedures necessary to respond to a distress signal at sea. The International Maritime Organization is committed to developing an international SAR plan so that no matter where an accident occurs, the rescue of a person in distress at sea will be coordinated by a SAR organization.
