Additional dates have been announced for the man-overboard awareness training course jointly operated by Seafish and the RNLI.

Falling overboard is the biggest cause of fatalities in the fishing industry. Last year, six deaths at sea were recorded as man-overboard fatalities by the MAIB.

The one-day courses will take place at environmental training pools across the UK, and Seafish and the RNLI are encouraging anyone working on a commercial fishing vessel to book a place. The course is fully funded, but spaces are limited.

The newly announced dates and venues are as follows:

  • East Coast College, Lowestoft – 1-3 March
  • Fleetwood Nautical Campus – 11-12 March
  • Survivex, Aberdeen – 10-12 May
