Recruitment drive and sea rescue course in Lamberts Bay

Volunteers needed in Lambert’s Bay.

Sea Rescue is hosting a recruitment drive for sea-going rescue crew in Lambert’s Bay.  If you are interested, we will be holding interviews on Thursday 20th September.

The successful candidates will go through a training course which has been sponsored. The course runs for 4 weeks on Thursday and Friday evenings, Saturday all day and Sunday morning.  The pattern will continue for 4 weeks, until mid November.

This course is for sea-going crew, so you should feel comfortable in the water, be willing to learn boating skills and become part of a dynamic team.  Modules include basic seamanship, rope work, pyrotechnics, collision regulations, basic radio work, emergency procedures, practical scenario planning and interpersonal skills.  At the end of each day everyone will join in to wash down the boat, refuel and repack the equipment.  The daily schedule will be dependent on weather and sea conditions.

Please note that the training is for people wanting to sign up as Sea Rescue volunteers.  There are no paid positions available.

Details  :

Anyone, male or female, between the age of 16 and 60 can apply to join the course.

The course material is in English but our instructors are able to have discussions and answer questions in Afrikaans.

A fitness test, including a 200m swim, will be undertaken so please bring clothes to swim in as well as a towel on the interview day.
