From Seafish: Effective 1st June 2017, both the Restricted and Unrestricted Under 16.5m Skippers certificate include two 1 day courses on stability awareness entitled Stability Awareness for Experienced Fishermen (formerly Intermediate Stability Awareness) and Advanced Stability Awareness. Any fishermen who already holds the previous Intermediate Stability Awareness Certificate would only need to complete the Advanced Stability Awareness course as part of the Under 16.5m Skippers Certificate.
A very interesting case study of a fisherman who completed the Introduction to Commercial fishing Course.
