First Aid & CPR with AED
FA1017
This 8-Hour First Aid & CPR with AED class is designed for all mariners both recreational and professional. The class is approved by the US Coast Guard to satisfy the requirements for mariners under the International Convention on the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) and satisfies the requirements for a Coast Guard Captain's license. While, much of the information and training is the same as what you would receive in other land-based First Aid and CPR classes, there is additional information and emphasis on issues pertinent to professional mariners and recreational boaters. Circumstances involving waterborne accidents require specific training that may not be addressed in other First Aid & CPR classes.

Students will also be trained in the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED) like the ones you may have seen in airports. AED's are essential lifesaving equipment for victims of life threatening cardiac arrhythmias such as ventricular fibrillation or tachycardia. In situations where emergency medical care will be delayed such as aboard a vessel, AED's can mean the difference between survival and death.

Upon successful completion of this class, students will receive an STCW First Aid & CPR certificate. This class is accepted by American Sailing Association & U.S. Sailing for certification in First Aid & CPR.

*Annapolis School of Seamanship is not affiliated with the American Red Cross and this class does NOT offer a Red Cross certification.

Marine Diesel Basics
DB1017A
This 2-day class is designed to benefit both recreational boaters and professional mariners who operate vessels equipped with diesel engines. The course covers all types of diesel engines and is not brand specific. While no previous experience is necessary, we have had experienced gasoline engine and automotive mechanics take this class to learn the unique characteristics of marine diesel engines. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to understand, troubleshoot, and perform basic preventative maintenance and repairs to their diesel engine. Throughout this course, students receive both lecture and hands-on instruction utilizing both a working diesel engine and a cutaway diesel that offers visual access to its inner workings. The cutaway engine enables students to easily make the transition from a theoretical to practical understanding of a diesel engine, while the working engine allows each student to perform hands-on procedures in the classroom.

Although this course is not designed to turn boat owners into expert mechanics, graduates gain a working knowledge of marine diesels, and the confidence to know when an experienced mechanic is needed. They are also better equipped to communicate with industry professionals.

Topics:
  • Principles of Operation
  • Anatomy of a Diesel Engine
  • Maintaining a Marine Diesel Engine
  • Basic Troubleshooting
