The Academy of Emergency Training/Primary Response
You will learn Marine Basic and Advanced First Aid – one of the many requirements to work in the marine industry – at the Academy of Emergency Training / Primary Response.
BCIT Marine Campus signed a partnership training agreement with the BC Ferry Services to deliver a series of both Transport Canada and company-specific courses to BC Ferries. This agreement has been a number of years in the making, and will give BCIT the status of being BC Ferries’ main supplier of marine training in BC. It is the only such agreement BC Ferries has signed with a training provider.
