Participation in onboard training is an activity that all crewmembers will be familiar with whether it be fire training and drills or training in how to use a piece of equipment or carry out a task.

Our can test package provides the background, instructions and content to support senior officers and superintendents delivering can test training to ship’s officers and crew. The pack includes:
