Core skills course for Maritime Search and Rescue Coordinators at EMSA
This week, 14 participants from eight Member States, along with 19 participants from nine beneficiary countries of the SAFEMED V and BCSEA II projects, have successfully completed the Core skills course for the Maritime Search and Rescue Coordinators 2023 – SAR 2023-2 developed by EMSA.
The part time course was delivered on a blended mode. Participants followed 11 units for two consecutive weeks in an online form (synchronous and asynchronous) with a one-and-a-half-day session held in EMSA’s premises involving all participants from EU countries.
The course ended with a closing online assessment.
SAR 2023-2 is aimed at people who already have a practical knowledge of Maritime Search and Rescue (SAR) operations from a coordination and control standpoint.
The learning service is designed and developed to provide participants with the necessary tools to perform coordinating duties in organisations involved in maritime SAR.
Its aim is to provide the necessary basic knowledge to Maritime Search and Rescue operators to enable them to carry out maritime SAR procedures at coordination level, in line with international requirements.
The SAR 2023-2 is an ISO 29993:2017 certified learning service outside formal education developed by the EMSA Academy and it is delivered on the Maritime Knowledge Centre (MaKCs), the eLearning Platform of the Agency.
