Like every year, also this summer, the Marine Rescue Training Centre conducted a (recently finished) training for newly admitted students of the Maritime University of Szczecin - the young people finished the so called "candidates' training". The candidates' training, which started already in the second half of July, lasted until 22nd September and, traditionally, was a period of intensive work both for the administration and the teachers responsible for the course.
Employees of the Marine Rescue Training Centre made all the efforts to provide the course participants with the highest quality of training, security, assistance within the scope of settling the first university matters and, above all, ensure a friendly atmosphere in the centre.
The trainers of the course: "Survival at Sea" had an opportunity to participate together with employees of the Customs Office in a joint hands-on exercise on the following transfers: boat-boat, boat-shore, shore-boat. This enabled the participants to build on the experience they already had and gain a wider insight into the difficulties and dangers, especially these related to transferring form one boat into the other while on the move.
In August, employees of the Marine Rescue Training Centre conducting Global Wind Organization trainings, in accordance with the recommendations of this organization, got acquainted with the construction of another type of turbine. Visits in turbines provide a possibility of understanding better the difficulties and dangers which my occur in the event of fire, the need of evacuation, rescue as well as all kinds of injuries and accidents.
