Small Commercial Vessel Operator and Crew Training

SDVBS Small Domestic Vessel Basic Safety
(Formerly MED A3 - Marine Emergency Duties A3)

Small Domestic Vessel Basic Safety


This new course is an update on the older MED A3 course.  It's still a one-day course providing basic safety training for crew members of non-pleasure vessels of not more than 150 gross tonnage operating not more than 25 nautical miles from shore.  If you already have the equivalent MED A3, rest assured it will not expire.


If you are the captain or crew aboard a commercial vessel, you are required to obtain the appropriate Marine Emergency Duties training certificate.  In many cases, this is the only marine emergency duty training you will require.


Course fee  

$240 (+ $31 HST)
