From fast boat rescue and personal survival techniques to marine firefighting, the Center for Marine Training and Safety offers a full spectrum of maritime and offshore training courses. Extensive hands-on activities and practical training enhance participants’ technical knowledge and skills. In addition to firefighting, courses include rescue, safety, and spill prevention courses, as well as land-based marine firefighting. The continuing education and professional development experience is second to none. Spill prevention and control courses provide the information necessary to supervise employees and contractors in the control, mitigation, and management of a spill response operation for both freshwater and coastal environments. These programs provide one of the largest open enrollment and training schedules of its type with courses conducted in College Station, Galveston, or at customer specified locations. Designated courses meet OSHA 29 CFR 19120.120 annual HAZWOPER refresher training requirements.

I didn’t get to say thank you before I left class so I wanted to take a moment and say thank you. Your class was excellent and I really appreciate the effort that you put into it. The material presented was effectively put together to ensure that we got the most out of it. I could really tell that you enjoy what you do. I have been training for quite some time and can tell that your passion is extremely high.
