MCA Boat Master Fire Safety Awareness Course  

MCA BML Fire Awareness Course
Marine Fire Safety Course ideal for all people who go to sea. Although it is aimed at Boat Masters we are all yacht sailors (and motor boaters) and know that a fire on a boat is a major problem as there are no fire escapes.

This course is aimed at all mariners who go on the water in smaller boats. It covers the fire training needed for the MCA BML Boat Master Licence and comes with a MCA approved Certificate.

The course is in London near Canary Wharf, you will get the chance to fight a live fire with CO2, Foam and Water.

We can bring the course to you for your group, you will need enough open space for a Fire Rig and we will have to run an on site risk assessment.
