Key aspects of onboard emergency response training programs are described by the author. He writes as administration manager of a consultant firm that has trained the crews of 1,800 ships in emergency response skills and safe operational procedures. The firm has found that in the vast majority of cases, the approach that works best is one that concentrates on training one emergency squad per vessel to the maximum possible proficiency. While cruise liners or ferries with large crews might have more than one such squad, ships with crew complements of 20 to 30 have resources, realistically, for only fully trained emergency teams. Some details are given on just how this training is accomplished.
