Safety Presentation


Published on

Volunteer instructors aboard ISEA vessels are considered passengers by the Caost Guard and are not allowed to have assigned duties involving safety or operation of the vessels. It is important, however, that ISEA instructors be aware of safety procedures and equipment found aboard each ship. Your primary role is supervision of your student group.
