REFUGEE RESCUE COURSE FOR SEAFARERS

The ever-increasing rates of rescuing lives at sea and the fate of refugees in distress at high seas or in territorial waters, impose a new situation that has to be managed by seafarers.

Aspida offers an efficient one-day course for seafarers, overviewing the regulations of international law and providing instructions and helpful insight on what to do when rendering assistance in distress.

Refugees, migrants and asylum seekers are likely to be rescued at large numbers by passing ships, especially in the:

• MEDITERRANEAN
• BENGAL BAY
