Left school and want to fish for a living? Sign up for your free fishing course now!

Our next 3 week Introduction to Commercial Fishing course will take place from 25 September to 13 October 2017. I would be very grateful if you can do anything in your power to bring this to the attention of the commercial fishing skippers and crews using your port. There will be an opportunity to meet the instructors and find out about the course at a taster session on Wednesday 13 September 2017.

This free course is aimed at new entrants to the fishing industry who are at least 16 years old. The course consists of two weeks shore-based training (covering safety, gear and catch handling, net mending, rope work, navigation and boat handling) followed by one week of mandatory basic safety courses for fishermen (Sea Survival, Fire Fighting, First Aid, Health and Safety) as well as the Seafish Basic Fishing Vessel Stability course.

This introductory level course will suit both young people looking for a career at sea in the fishing industry as well as those looking for a change of career. The course aims to equip candidates with the basic skills and knowledge to commence work at sea in a safe and useful manner. It will be provided free of charge in Cornwall for a limited number of candidates via Seafood Cornwall Training Ltd.

If you can help get to fishermen then please get in touch with us at the office on 01736 364324 or call my mobile.
