As previously announced, because of COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s popular Lifeboat Crew Exchange will take the form of two webinars.

SAR organisations who would normally have been hosting Crew Exchange participants, will instead be sharing presentations and videos on a number of topics of relevance to anyone with an interest in lifeboat operations, including new vessel technology and lessons learned from incidents and accidents. 

These two webinars will be held on Tuesday, 22 September 2020 (“Learning from Each Other”) and Thursday, 24 September 2020 (“Equipment, Innovation & Technology”) from 19:30 – 20:30 CEST (Central European Summer Time).

Both webinars are open only to IMRF Members and will be free of charge.

These two webinars will also provide an opportunity to ask questions and contribute your own experiences.

After the sessions, the presentations will be available to view and download on the "Members Only" area of the IMRF website.

To register for these free sessions, please complete the registration form by clicking on the "Next" button below.

Once registered, you will receive a confirmation e-mail (please, check your junk folder as well, in case the confirmation e-mail lands there).
