Maritime Mass Rescue Subject-Matter Expert Course – Application Process Now Open

Posted in News

Gothenburg, Sweden, 4-6 September 2018

Clay Evans, Superintendent Maritime SAR (Western), Canadian Coast Guard:

“This is the only course that I know of that not only provides a complete overview of what an MRO is, but also explains how to develop and implement a plan to deal with it. The course also provides a rare forum for global experts to gather together and share real world experiences, thereby combining the theoretical with the practical.”

Building on the success of the first IMRF Mass Rescue Operation Subject-Matter Expert (SME) course, held in June 2017, a second course will be held at Chalmers University, in Gothenburg, Sweden, in association with the Swedish Sea Rescue Society (SSRS), from Tuesday 4th – Thursday 6th September 2018.

Applications for this course are now being accepted.

For more information about the aim, format, content and outcomes of the course, together with details of the course fees and an application form, please visit the MRO Subject-Matter Expert Website (new window).

Places on the course are limited and so applications will be screened to ensure that places are allocated to those for the whom the course will be most relevant.

Please note that last year's course was over-subscribed, so early application is recommended.
