The Combined Marine Firefighting course emphasizes hands-on training to provide you with the skills necessary to effectively lead an emergency response team aboard a merchant vessel or offshore facility. Supplementing the hands-on training are classroom presentations utilizing discussion, demonstrations, case histories, and visual presentations.

You will be assigned to various positions on emergency response teams and will be asked to respond to different live-fire situations as an organized unit. As part of an attack team and scene leader, you will assess the situation, decide on a course of action and implement chosen tactics to successfully control the incident.
