MMA Educates On The Importance Of At-Sea Medical Care

Friday, January 05, 2001
Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA) is focusing on the significance of medical care onboard ships with its new USCG/STCW-approved Medical Care at Sea - Person in Charge (PIC) course. Offered in conjunction with Emergency & Safety Programs (ESP) of Philadelphia, Pa., the six-day training course will be held at the Academy's Buzzards Bay campus beginning January 16, 2001 - with additional courses scheduled throughout the year.

The program's base is to provide licensed maritime officers the opportunity to develop or refresh the knowledge and skills that are necessary to administer appropriate care in the event of illness or injury at sea.

For additional details, contact: George Gillis, MMA, at (508) 830-5097 or visit MMA's Web site at www.mma.mass.edu.
