Visual Distress Signals CBT


Thousands of passengers aboard the RMS Titanic drowned after the ship's infamous collision with an iceberg. The ship did not sink alone, however, and in fact, sent off many distress signals in site of a nearby vessel which could have aided.

Unfortunately, the crew of the nearby vessel did not recognize the pattern of the Titanic's distress signals. Left to their own interpretations, they figured the Titanic's crew was having a party.

This incident clearly highlights the need for crews to understand when and how to properly signal for aid, so that nothing is ever unclear or left to chance.

In this course, you'll review the usage of different kinds of pyrotechnic and non-pyrotechnic visual distress signals. You'll also cover some of the requirements required by governing agencies.
