ISAF Offshore Personal Survival
In 2003, ISAF introduced a standard basic syllabus for the training of safety courses in order to establish an International recognised qualification. The training requirements form part of the ISAF Offshore Special Regulations. These courses are run and established by ISAF Member National Authorities (MNA) and conform to ISAF minimum standards.
The following is a list of Sail Canada-approved ISAF Offshore Personal Survival course providers:
