SPC course has been held. Oct. 7 to 9
SPC 3-day course has been held at NSTC as a part of On Board Training Course for Fisheries Crewmen provided by OFCF (Overseas Fishery Cooperation Foundation of Japan). SPC course is offshore survival training special course designed to fit the needs of clients. Participants were eight enthusiastic young men from Micronesia.
Key Japanese words used in emergency were employed during the training although overall training was provided in English because they would be on Japanese ships with mostly Japanese crew. After 3 days of training in first aid, sea survival, fire prevention and firefighting/self-rescue, they completed the course without any problem.
