Fishing Partnership is pleased to offer CPR/1st Aid & Ergonomics training and, to support our communities, we are presenting Opioid Awareness training.

There is a materials fee of $25.00 for the CPR/1st Aid course, payable via exact cash or check on the day of the seminar. Ergonomics and Opioid Awareness/Narcan® trainings are FREE.

Ergonomics is the science of adapting workstations, tools, equipment, and work methods for more efficient, comfortable and error-free use by humans. This special course was designed especially for commercial fishermen. Learn how to improve your 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!).

We hope you can join us for this comprehensive program!

For more information or to register for the course, please contact Deb Kelsey or Monica DeSousa, call 508.991.3043 or register below.
