Canadian Safe Boating Council
Cold Water Workshop and Instructor Course in Hull, Quebec

 

The CSBC is holding a one day Cold Water Workshop and two day Instructor Course in Hull, Quebec.

The instructor course will qualify those who are currently involved in marine rescue and response on how to teach first responders to properly deal with hypothermic victims. Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht, (aka Professor Popsicle), Professor of Thermophysiology at the University of Manitoba will take the instructor/students through a two day course to provide them with the information and knowledge necessary to help first responders understand this important issue and to better prepare them to deal with hypothermic victims. Course materials including an instructors handbook and power point presentation to be used for subsequent Cold Water Workshops is included. Cost is $ 400 for the two day course and includes lunches and breaks.

Immediately following the Instructor Course, a one day workshop will be held, also hosted by Dr. Giesbrecht. This one day workshop will cover topics that include mechanism of heat loss, thermal protection realities, triage of the hypothermic victim, extraction techniques, re-warming and packaging for transportation. If you are a first responder or you work on or near the water this is a perfect opportunity to broaden your knowledge of cold water and enhance your knowledge and skills when dealing with a hypothermic victim. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the workshop. Cost is $185 and includes lunch.

Space is limited for the Cold Water Instructor Course and the Cold Water Workshop.
