If you have several participants who need SVOP, MED A3 or ROC-M training, a group booking may be just the thing you're looking for! The training can then take place at a location and a time to suit you. Our group rates are based on a day rate, meaning the more people you put in a course the more you save (upto a maximum class size of 12). Our group rates usually work out more economical than our public rates, if you have 5 or more people that need the training. 

At Datum Marine, we are set up to do work with specific companies and groups, in fact this is most of our business. Our instructors are Transport Canada audited and our classes are fully approved and listed on the Transport Canada approved training courses TP 10655 E. 

New Group Booking Incentive - If we can put one or more additional participants into your group booking, we will give you a discount for every additional person we put in your class. Send us a quick email or phone call to find out more.

Having combined experience with passenger vessels, sport fishing, commercial fishing, tugboats, police boats, harbour patrol and fish farms, our instructors can help tailor specific information to the industry of your interest. One of our most important priorities is to deliver relevant training. Your employees and participants will end up valueing safety and professionalism in a more important light after our classes are through.

There is an option to provide oral exams (as per Transport Canada procedures) for those participants who may be a little rusty on their reading and writing skills. The classes, although theoretical, are geared towards visual, video, audio and object learning styles. Our instructors are not well know for just standing in front of a class and reading from a textbook. We strive to keep people interested and involved, and learn the information required by solving problems. The important information continues to be recalled after years, with this way! 

We can dovetail the classes to add practical training before or after the class to help re-inforce some of the theory built up in SVOP and MED A3 class. We have practical training options to deliver on your own vessel, in your own waters. 

We are also experienced in writing Safety Management Systems for marine based operations, and helping companies and individuals self inspect their vessels for commercial purposes. 

Our training rates are quite simple:

daily instruction rate + per person rate + travel, accommodation, expenses =your bill

We invoice our corporate clients after the training is complete and are flexible and professional about PO numbers and invoicing.

Please email or call us with specific details and we can put some marine commercial training together for you and your group--professional, relevant, and safety oriented.

"With the unique needs of staging a training course in the remote community of Klemtu we were looking for a training provider who had flexibility and experience in teaching to students with a wide range of learning styles. Datum Marine Services and instructor Chris more than fir the bill on both counts. Chirs was fantastic with younger students and was able to keep the older students engaged and motivated. Well done guys!" Tim McGrady, General Manager, Spirit Bear Lodge
