Then we will evaluate the situations that can force a crew to abandon their vessel. Obviously next up is what equipment is available for you when you have to give up the ship at sea and how is it used. After this we spend time learning how to use emergency signal devices. We will wrap up the course with a 20-question exam you will need to achieve 70% or greater to pass. Now you are ready to go out for hands-on learning.
