The Australian Sailing Safety and Sea Survival (SSSC) course involves classroom presentations and learning activities, and practical exercises in the use of liferafts, inflatable lifejackets, and distress flares. The course is delivered over two full days and is facilitated by a Safety and Sea Survival Instructor. The practical pool exercises will be conducted within a heated swimming pool.
You will gain a Safety and Sea Survival Qualification Certificate as required for Category 1 and Category 2 races. This certificate is valid for 5 years from the date of the course.
A refresher course of one day duration is available for those who have attended a Safety and Sea Survival Course previously.
