Accident investigations conducted by the Transportation Safety Board have made it clear that ineffective communication during emergency situations and/or the complete lack thereof, have contributed to tragic results for commercial fishermen. Get the training you need from experienced and qualified commercial fishermen who can demystify and instruct you in the proper and effective use of radio communications on board your vessel.
*Non-BC commercial fishermen cost: $200 CAD
