I got a chance to go through a Shipyard Competent Person course, so, of course, I’m going to go.
It got me thinking about ancillary training.
What kind of training have you, my fellow mariners, found helpful, outside of the required BST/STCW/USCG type of training? Things like Forklift certification, Crane/Rigger training, HAZWOPER, Helicopter Underwater Egress Training, et cetera.
What have you all done? Anything you guys find essential?
