Over 519 crew members from IMRF member organisations have participated and trained in the European Lifeboat Crew Exchange since it started in 2012.
The crew on the course spend 7 intensive days hosted by an IMRF member organisation in September, improving their professional knowledge and experience, which they then bring back to their own organisation.
You can read here about the impact that taking part in this exchange has had for DGzRS, the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service.
