[QUOTE=Menizzi;166466]Thanks for the helpful replys. I did search this forum and google but in Google i searched for lifeboatman so maybe thats why i did not get any good hits. After reading alot on these forums and how people talk to each other i know not to post unless i have searched the forum and google. But don’t worry i don’t wear my feelings on my sleeve.[/QUOTE]
If you search for Proficiency In Survival Craft (PSC) courses, you will find many courses all over the U.S. Some of those courses are limited to liferafts, but most include both liferafts and lifeboats. There are more of these PSC courses in the Gulf than anywhere else: Sea School, Falck, Houston/Falck, Safety Management Systems, Young Memorial, Fletcher, and others.
Since you live in Pasadena, why not start by going over to talk to the folks at San Jac and Seaman’s Church Institute ? Petrofrac and Falck also run facilities in Texas.
MPT is a good school, but do not go there for PSC with Lifeboat. They bus their students to Tampa and back for the Lifeboat training. You would be better off to just take the course from the school in Tampa.
