Night Operations Rescue Water Craft training is an awareness and operational level course element that is attached to a Stage 4 or Stage 5 Training Course. It is an additional program of training.

This course assists public safety agencies pr qualified volunteers who are called at near sunset or during night and will be responding in harbors, open water or areas that are not going to be considered extreme risks.

Night operation training can also be an asset for natural or catastrophic disasters where flooding is present.

Night Qualification is dependent upon a two-boat deployment system and navigational aids. This training element supports disaster and flood training for specific environmental factors.
