First-Aid/CPR/Ergonomics Training – New Bedford

  • Type: CPR/First Aid
  • Location:
  • Date: January 18, 2018
  • Time: 08:00am - 01:00pm

CPR/First Aid Certification will be offered by FPSS in conjunction with an ergonomics training for fishermen. Ergonomics is the science of adapting workstations, tools, equipment, and work methods for more efficient, comfortable and error-free use by people. This course was designed especially for commercial fishermen. Learn how to improve ergonomics on your fishing vessel! You will learn ways to reduce pain and injury to your body through more efficient work practices (efficiency = more fish!).

The cost of the CPR course is $25.00 payable via check on the day of the seminar. The ergonomics class is FREE. The two classes are conveniently offered in the same session.

Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the training.
